Week in Review — April 9-15, 2012

Well, here at TJP we’ve kept Easter going (and going, and going … wait, is that what’s behind the Energizer bunny?) — and the celebration isn’t over yet. We kicked off last week with Perry Petrich’s take on The Hunger Games as a sign of hope, and Sean Dempsey made his TJP debut connecting pop culture reboots with resurrection. Tim O’Brien couldn’t even find a seat in church. Luckily, the virtual space at TJP doesn’t have any limits:

  • Continuing our foray into audio, Jay Hooks interviews Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ, founder of Homeboy Industries, on “hard work, God, and redemption,” and his work with former gang members
  • Brendan Busse finds glory, just outside the window of a plane
  • It’s not all-Easter-all-the-time: reading David Foster Wallace, Perry Petrich’s vision of hell looks like a cruise ship
  • And though it took a while, Sam Sawyer finally stopped procrastinating and wrote a post about Ze Frank’s “Invocation for Beginnings

The new week at TJP is already underway — we’ll see you back here, another seven days of Easter later, with another Week in Review.
