  1. Ry,

    I’ve seen Jenson lecture in a number of different settings, and in a number of different countries. I can say that although I have never left a Jenson lecture without more questions than I came with, I have never left without my mind tingling and my heart being ‘strangely warmed’. I expect no less from this series, most of which (if not all) I hope to attend. He really is a most erudite and creative thinker. I will never forget the passion with which he spoke of the disgracefulness of the use of shot glasses for Holy Communion, and his insistence that Christian communities purchase the very best wine that they can afford.
