How is that a thing?

Cindy Brady (see the video below) poses a question for anyone joining a Facebook group called Christians For Trump; “How is that a thing?” She lays down the challenge in unsparing terms. Lest her confrontational words throw us, read the Bible’s portrait of the commendable ruler in Psalm 72. A couple passages from the ESV translation: […]

I wish politics would stop barging in on my ambitions for this site

I’m forever vowing to veer this blog from the tentative political scene to more weighty — and ultimately relevant — eternal matters, but America’s death spiral always upsets my plans. The US now aims for a new goal: Forget trips to unexplored planets by the decade’s end or feeding the world or ending poverty (anyone […]

David Frum tells it like it is

Lest I’m accused of scouring muck from the left-wing fringe, I’ll say this: David Frum, editor-at-large for The Atlantic, is a neoconservative who once wrote speeches for President George W. Bush. He’s like many who once formed the Republican backbone: Our current rogue president worries him. He shares his thoughts on the Comey-firing aftermath. Watch […]

A fiend leers from the US House

Other nations would grumble “general strike” after last week’s malevolent health care monster lumbered out of the US House. Grim police would rim the streets in riot gear. Prime ministers would tender resignations and governments would collapse. And I’d growl in my living room, infuriated by my own enforced passivity. I’m rendered incapable of marching […]

Eco-friendly evangelicals take it to the streets

Cross published on Huffpost Who says a climate-denying cult entrances all evangelical Christians? Brian Webb’s faith has propelled him into pro-science action. He’s a mover and a shaker, an organizational hombre, a managerial mahatma with a Bible. Webb directs Climate Caretakers, a network founded in August 2015 to mobilize the faithful, and he’s leading a […]

When the future invades the present

Note; This is an expanded meditation of Easter’s posting.  Jesus was launching a subtle rebellion at his resurrection, the day when Eternity invaded Temporality and Life swallowed Death. He upended the norms of Death and played by his own rules. He declared one of his norms in Matthew 20:16: “The last will be first, and […]

The Great Reversal

Jesus was launching a subtle rebellion at his resurrection, the day when Eternity invaded Temporality and Life swallowed Death. He upended the norms of Death and played by his own rules. He declared one of his norms in Matthew 20:16: “The last will be first, and the first last.” He immediately implemented that rule when […]

A meditation for Holy Saturday

This is an enigmatic day wrapped in an unpopular doctrine. The day: The Church universal has always remembered Christ’s descent “into Hell,” per the fifth article of the Apostles Creed. The enigma is bound with the question: “Why would God send Jesus to Hell?” The unpopular doctrine is Hell itself.  Perhaps the enigma becomes more […]

A dim ray of hope in climate change

Perhaps the path to clean skies and calm seas snakes past Washington and toward Sacramento, with California Governor Jerry Brown blazing the trail. Such speculation arises even as activists book buses for the People’s Climate March in Washington DC on April 29. No doubt they’ll brandish signs and rally against the Trump administration’s evisceration of […]
