This is attributed to a speech given by Bill Gates at a High School. I'm not sure whether that is the real source or not and I'm not motivated to figure that out. Rule 1 : Life is not fair... Continue reading

It seems to me that despite the passage of 2,000 years Christians are still working out what a friend of mine calls, 'the whole Jesus thing.' What's up in the air? Well, the Jesus is fully God, fully human explanation... Continue reading

Noticed something about the list of potential nominees to replace Justice Stevens on the Supreme Court? The bulk of the top candidates are women....again. Listening to MPR rattle off the names this morning, my mind went to the place of... Continue reading

I think I have been on the receiving end of more "Happy Easters!" than ever in my life. The irony being that this year - more than most years - Easter bugs. Churchy types just get so dramatic about Easter.... Continue reading

So, I've swallowed the pill and fully believe that Christianity is in the midst of reformation - in no small part because of the convincing arguments made in Phyllis Tickle's landmark book, The Great Emergence. Of course, one of the... Continue reading

The bishops of The Episcopal Church are meeting later this week with the theme of the meeting being "The Church for the 21st Century." Topics discerned to be under this umbrella are: same-gender relationships, the Anglican covenant, the emergent church... Continue reading

Isn't it true? In dating, even in friendship, are you truly attracted to being around someone who just has that sense of desperation about them? Sure, you may want to rescue them, but do you really invest friendship or love... Continue reading

Recently had a conversation that went something like this (more or less): Me: Would you say you are Christian? Them: Yes. Me: Do you go to church? Them: No. Me: Why do you say you are Christian then? Them: Because... Continue reading

Love this. An important conversation and one whose time has come, I believe. I grow more and more uncomfortable with the term emergent every day for the limitations, assumptions, and bias the term now has. Something new has taken root within the institution, I believe. Something with a new focus on mission and contextualized community experiences. What to call it?
