Lord of the Flies

I confess that I missed the disturbing attack at the Capitol yesterday, because I was in a 6-hour, worship and working meeting with our fellow Anglican bishops. I do not know the full details of the attack on the Capitol .  . . While there are some facts known, there...
Etch-A-Sketch. An article for those who have really “blown it.”

Etch-A-Sketch. An article for those who have really “blown it.”

I can’t draw a lick and am even worse drawing on an Etch-A-Sketch. A box, rectangle or stickman figure is about as much as I can “sketch.” Pathetic.  In contrast, some people make incredible complex and beautiful portraits on theirs. I believe juggling, unicycling,...

Trick Plays and Modern Christianity

The old “Statue of Liberty play” was a big favorite in middle school.  The Trick Play: The quarterback takes the snap, drops back, and then, while faking a throw to one side of the field (his arm raised like Lady Liberty’s torch-bearing limb), tucks the ball behind...

Have you met Mama Gloria?

This Sunday we will be looking at the Gospel passage of Mt 25:14-30, The Parable of The Talents. This is a rich parable that challenges us to invest our lives in growing the kingdom of God.  I will be preaching but have asked Dr. Gloria Kwashi to join me for the...
