Worship in the Facebook Age

Worship in the Facebook Age

Many of us are concerned about the social and political climate in our nation, I am one of them.  And I intend to resist it with all the spiritual and intellectual vigor I can muster. Not because a Republican holds office, but because our nation is in the grip of...

What Draws Us

What Draws Us

If we, by lack of will and love, cannot entice others to the way of Jesus, we should not compel them through force of law.  For good religion does not clench the fist.  It extends the hand. [prettyfilelink size=""...

When Boredom Was a Sin

When Boredom Was a Sin

For years the early church believed it was a sin to be bored, so there was a great flowering of thought and song and dance and prayers and writing and art.  It was magnificent. [prettyfilelink size=""...

What Is A Holy Day?

What Is A Holy Day?

A holy day is any day a child is educated, a song is sung, a picture is painted.  It is any day a Muslim, Christian, and Jew walk into a bar, not because it’s a joke, but because they are friends.  It is any day black lives matter.  Any day a police officer protects...
