Happy 200, Pastor Kierkegaard

Soren Kierkegaard turns 200 today. As one might expect, I think this is a birthday worth celebrating. Personally I hope to settle in with The Point Of View for an hour or so.

I'm not alone in the commemoration. Radio National has at least two programs to mark the occasion; one from Encounter and one from The Spirit of Things. I'm keen to see what else they publish, especially from the Religion and Ethics portal.

What are you doing to remember the gadfly of Copenhagen, the Socratic Lutheran, the father of existentialism, and the 19th century's greatest challenge to Christianity from within itself*?

* Hat tip to Nietzsche as the greatest challenge from outside of Christianity. Well worth reading his stuff, especially for Christians.
