On Relevant Radio this morning

... at 8 a.m. 

I'll be talking with Sean Herriott about summertime with the kids, and Harry Potter.

(Updated to note: Here's a post from 2007, in which I talked a little more extensively about our take on all things Potter.)

Oooo...I missed it! You will have to fill me in on what you said about Harry Potter. :)

Karen Edmisten said...

Will fill you in soon! :)

Sorry I missed this talk!...but it was good just to see that you spoke on this. Based on your having linked to your previous post, I'm going to guess you haven't changed your mind. :) I just commented this morning on someone's post about how bad HP is. No, I mean the post was about how bad HP is; I commented with another viewpoint. This is such a "hot topic". I once had a friend tell me that if we would get everything HP out of our house, maybe things would go better for us (now is THAT "magic"?).

I get re-frustrated when people get heated up about this again. If it were not so hot out, I'd go try to walk it off. Thank you for sharing your views. And now that I've thanked you, I can try for Philippians 4:8, as they say, "Whatever is" good, think on that. Not focus on people criticizing other people's literature choices. :)

LOVED the post from 2007; it is every bit as relevant today.

Also, can you give us more of a head's up when you're on Morning Air? Or do you not find out until that day?

(That would just be cruel of them.)

(Unless, perhaps, they had gourmet coffee delivered.)

Karen Edmisten said...

Mags, the gourmet coffee is a great idea. :)
I will try to give you more of a heads-up!

Margaret Mary, yes -- as I always tell my kids, we hold everything up to the light of our Catholic faith, and we examine it in that way, keeping the good and rejecting the bad. And, in encouraging critical thinking, we find that we can read a "rattllin' good yarn" that is thoroughly entertaining, like HP, and not be troubled. We don't use it as our catechism ... We already have one of those! :)

I'm so glad you commented on HP. I particularly like the concept of "holding everything up to the light of our Catholic faith." Utterly practical! In other news, I really need to get a radio for my office...

Karen Edmisten said...

Thanks, Kim. Yes, holding everything up to the light is the only thing that makes sense to me. :)
