How Can We Sing?

When will those of us who are white stop demanding tunes of acquiescence from those who experience exile and injustice?


Test Everything

I am encouraged by my daughter’s instinct to test everything she reads, hears, and experiences, because it seems to be leading her to find deeper meaning.


Protest and Praise

Psalm 42 encourages praising God even when enemies taunt, making praise a form of protest and protest a form of praise.


Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

I wonder what would happen if we believed we are fearfully and wonderfully made. That despite what the world says about us or what we believe about ourselves, our creation is wonderful.


In/Correct Protest

When the blood is flowing in the streets, when the grapes of wrath have filled and split open like so many mothers’ broken hearts, what then is the approved protocol?


Dwell with Me

It’s time we stop demanding God show up in every situation and start asking if God would want us in that situation in the first place.


No Turning Back

Liberation is work. Clearing the path to something new without the machinery of empire. Creating friction by refusing to do what is expected. Wouldn’t it just be easier…?


Living by the Word

Ever since faith graced us, it’s been our mission to look a bit ridiculous. To don hope’s inappropriate attire in a world hunkered down in stubborn frost.


Be Careful What You Wish For

Wisdom isn’t in the end point, the one thing that will instantly make life easier or powerfuller or more fun. Wisdom is the beginning.


Both Sides?

Christ teaches us that those whose hearts are calloused have missed the mark. Those whose hearts are tender have a better chance of finding Jesus.
