I spent the first part of the week out in LA at the Faith, Fear and Indifference Conference at USC, which focused on how teenagers, post 9-11 think about religion. Moralistic Theraputic Deism was the big theme. But the highlights were Brother John from Taize and Amira Quraishi speaking on the Muslim Youth Camp. We had dinner with USC's president, who spoke about the unique role private schools have in fostering religious identity. It was inspiring.
