I'm on it! In about 40 years, I'll let you know how it's going.

Wow. We've been waiting for this for five hundred years. Regensburg failed, but Uncle Tom has a way for us to all get back on board as Protestants and Catholics together. Read the Bible, pray and love one another - it was that simple! Now as long as no-one asks what the Bible we're reading means, what we're praying for and how we should love one another we can hold this thing together ...

Aramaic. D'oh.

Amen! But yeah, I'm (more than) a little weak on the original languages myself.

I think my own seminary did a good job of helping us learn to be sensitive and compassionate towards others; but for all the strengths of the Bible classes and spiritual life of the seminary, I really think my own training could have been improved in these areas. But, thankfully, opportunities for prayer and Bible study abound and we aren't limited to the content of our 'official' curriculum.
