Zombies Among Us

Today, I’m throwing a flag on some folks. It’s a BS flag. Interpret that however you like. But I can tell you, it doesn’t stand for “Bible Study”, “Baloney Sandwiches” or “Barbra Streisand”.  Though I do enjoy me some Barbra. Some folks think they’re activists, really affecting change. But in truth, they’re all talk. When […]

But have not love…

I Corinthians 13, commonly called the Love Chapter of the Bible,  reinterpreted for political addicts (in other words, most of the people on Facebook): “Though I speak with the tongues of politicians and pundits, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a 24 hour new channel. And though I have the gift […]

Should we forgive Kathy Griffin?

We need to relearn the fine art of disagreeing agreeably

So…should we forgive Kathy Griffin? For anyone who’s been 100 miles away from cell phone coverage this week, the comedian did a photo shoot of her holding what appeared to be the bloody, severed head of President Trump. It’s reported the president’s young son Barron saw the image and was quite disturbed by it. Response […]

The Little Woman

Something I wrote while my wife was making me a sandwich...

This is soup. My awesome wife Dawn made some for supper tonight. Author’s note: I did not force her to cook this meal in any patrician/male-dominating sort of way. I’m pretty sure she did not feel coerced to do it and it did not betray her femininity to take on such a traditional conservative role […]

My Favorite Wife

Happy Mother's Day to the real super hero in our family!

I loved the show “24,”.  To me, Jack Bauer was the quintessential American hero. Like most heroes, Jack was a loner. He avoided relationships because loved ones have a way of getting hurt around him. He won the day using his well-honed skills. Then he walked back into the darkness until the world needed him […]

Rainbow Sprinkles

To those who don't fit it...good!

You may not have known I was a dancer in the 80s. Just a boy, his dance belt and a dream, walking the mean streets of NYC. I’ll bet the people who just voted yesterday to hire me as their next pastor had no idea of my past. But that’s Ok… …because it’s just a […]

A Dusty Old Book

It’s weird, that moment when you suddenly realize how others perceive you. It’s as if a window opens and you no longer see yourself subjectively – you can now see yourself through the eyes of others. When spiritual issues come up in conversation, I can tell how alien I seem. It’s like I’m talking about […]

Blinding Them With Science

A worship service, led by the Right Reverend Bill Nye

I’m afraid I may have just triggered someone. First, let me explain. I watched over the weekend as the March for Science took place in Washington D.C. (Earth Day – April 22, 2017). The organizers had made it clear they didn’t want their event to become a partisan political forum: We unite as a diverse, […]
