Tony Jones, Wales, and Final Thoughts on Boston Emergent Coven, uhm I mean Cohort
Okay, I did not remember to ask the question last night, but I asked by e-mail today, and yes, Tony is of Welsh heritage. Duh - Jones. My gosh, his great-grandfather was a Welsh Presbyterian Minister, and his tombstone in Minnesota is inscribed in Welsh. Dang, my Welshness is so far back, it almost connects to Llewelyn ap Gruffydd.
So Tony has one up on me there. but I speak some broken Welsh, and he doesn't know lick of it, so I've got one up on him there. I am waiting to hear his Welsh stories he is going to tell me someday, and discover how deep is his hiraeth. Then we'll bust out a pint and shout "IECHYD DA!"
Apart from that I had a great time with the Emergent Coven of 13 in Boston last night, and I will be posting some thoughts on Pentecostals, Charismatics, and Emergent. Marieke got me going on this track.
The first person to tell me the most recent Prince of Wales gets a special monster link to their blog site. Hint: the answer is quite nationalistic.
13 and one half hours after posting:
Marieke from Raining Grace came up with the correct answer: Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, although she also came up with the acceptable second answer: Owain Glyndwr
