Stargazing in Catholic churches

My week flew by with what feels like very little to show for it. However, I did survive a high-pressure interview with a government official, so I’m still calling Nov. 14-18 a win.

Rabbi David Saperstein, Ambassador-at-large for International Religious Freedom, was in Utah to speak at BYU and the University of Utah. He carved out a half an hour for little old me, and I was able to ask about his work, ongoing religious freedom debates in the U.S. and the future of foreign policy under President Trump. My fingers are still sore from typing out his long, excellent answers.
