The Fragility of Mappability

One of the more awkward things about our faith is how firmly tied it is to the concrete world. This particularity makes religion potentially fragile.

Blessed Are the Broken

Our wounds and our scars don't make us too broken for anything – for love, for healing, or for closure.

Everything is Canceled

Rather than denying and defending, I am called to confront and repent. To seek forgiveness and then to wait with my whole being on the Merciful One.

The Grace of Being Wrong

Sometimes the longest and most difficult journey is not from place to place, but from assumption to experience, from disdain to respect, from judgment to love.

We’re Everywhere Now

In my lifetime, we have gone from furtively hiding to joyfully journeying to the holy mountain. Just as the prophet promised.


Your church can help heal divisions by addressing your community’s pain. Your church’s works of justice and mercy have never been more important.


Even in this wild adventure, we are reminded of God’s peace that does not depend on outcome, or circumstances, or conditions. It lives within us.

Head Blessings

The psalmist said that it is good and pleasant when we dwell together in unity. But not all things that are pleasant are good – and not all things that are good are pleasant.


How do we know when to quit, dust off our feet and move on? Or to plant our dusty feet on the earth, and start singing ‘We shall not be moved’?

Killers Like Me

My job is to tap into the source for the sake of that which is depending on me. God’s care was never meant to inspire carelessness in us.
