Musings

September 7, 2013

Syria Brian Zahnd has written a wonderful monologue on the situation in Syria. It is brief but to the point. It presents ways of responding in a Christian way to many of the questions and points that are being raised. How does a Christian respond to this business about a red line being crossed? Zahnd […]

Love Your Enemies

August 21, 2013

“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And […]

Biased

October 4, 2012
