Troy Davis: A Global Day of Solidarity

You may remember me posting about Troy Davis over the last several years. Starting today there are a series of events planned to pray for and request the State of Georgia to grant him clemency. Here is a link to today’s activities. Here is a link to my former posts. Though I have only been [...]

The Youth Aren’t to Blame!

This article on the NYT is getting loads of press in certain Facebook circles. Though the author uses scholastic reflections on a study of young people to make his point, he missed the case that Smith et al are really making: adults need to take responsibility for creating contexts for healthy decision-making by young people.

Digitally Enhanced Worship Song

Can I implore someone to go with me on this and to use this song during a worship service, gathering, or curated space? I’m becoming convinced that until the church takes up the technologies of the age with its narrative, rituals and prayers, our technology will only ever be seen as other than us! I [...]

Last Night’s King Interview with Jennifer Knapp

Not sure if you got to see last night’s interview with Larry King, Jennifer Knapp and Pastor Bob Botsford, but you really should check it out. I am working on piece about it will either post it here (in the next few days) or link to where it gets posted. Stay tuned though. And in [...]

New Podcast: Brian McLaren on A New Kind of Christianity

This week we have Brian Mclaren back on for a record breaking 4th interview, which means we have interviewed him more than CNN. Nick does a great job with the interview, especially since I couldn’t be on the line as I was out at Theology after Google’s Claremont Gathering (#tag10). Also, and in case you missed [...]

Necessary? Something that you have to make an extra effort at doing? What are some of your tips or thoughts [...]

Sallie McFague: The World as God’s Body

Here is an article I had to do comparing two articles. One by Sallie McFague, the other by Kathryn Tanner. Both articles were written under the title “Is God in charge?” Sallie McFague: God’s Body, Humanity’s Home and Responsibility Sallie McFague’s account of God’s relationship to the world presents a more effective stimulus to ecologically [...]

Did Obama cost America the Olympics?

So as everyone knows, I’m an Obama fan. Yet those that I deeply like, I also love to critique. My question is: did Obama’s prominent pulling for the Olympics to come to Chicago cost Chicago the bid or, did it simply demonstrate how close we are to living in a post-American world? My sense is [...]

The New Biology: Where Mind and Matter Meet

Here is Bruce Lipton Part Two. Again, I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am. I find myself having to process it a few times over in order to begin thinking about the hidden connections that ensue. But, they are there. Check out these earlier posts on similar topics. Lipton Part One. [...]
