    The courtyard of St Bride’s church, just off Fleet Street in London, was the spot for six hours of kirtan on October 13th. Just a stone’s throw from St Paul’s Cathedral and that round Knight’s Templar church featured in the Da Vinci Code, this area is ancient. A temple to Diana, goddess of hunting, was once here, too. Around 200 took part in the six-hour ‘challenge’ and the bulk of them stayed right until the end. Yogis, every one of them. Eight kirtan...

    My dwarf heirloom variety of Aquadulce broad beans are maturing nicely. Broad beans, sometimes known as fava beans, are enjoyed in many cultures the world over. They are a labour of love to grow, taking at least 120 days from sowing to fruiting. I have 100 plants in various stages of fruition in different spots in my garden, all sown from scratch - literally a couple of large handfuls of dried beans. The flowers are beautiful, and hopefully each will manifest a bean pod after dropping off....

    Dallas Morning News, Each week we will post a question to a panel of about two dozen clergy, laity and theologians, all of whom are based in Texas or are from Texas.
