Identity Markers

July 31, 2010

The church is a community.  It defines who we are are, but the church is not the only community for which we are a part.  We are either male or female. We are all part of a family.  Most of us work or go to school.  We may belong to a club or other special […]

The Sacred Journey

July 20, 2010

The Sacred Journey is a book in The Ancient Practices series edited by Phyllis Tickle.  It tackles the subject of pilgrimage.  I must admit that I was somewhat skeptical about reading a book on pilgrimage.  I was greatly surprised.  The Sacred Journey is a wonderful read.  It doesn’t necessarily argue for pilgrimage in a traditional […]

Reflections on Genesis 1

July 19, 2010

Genesis 1 contains some scientific information, but it is not a scientific document (The sun and the moon are not even important enough to receive names.).  Genesis 1 is a theological document.  No matter what one believes scientifically about this chapter it could be disproved tomorrow, but the theological truths would still be true.  Therefore, […]

[…]

The End of Poverty?

July 11, 2010

“The End of Poverty?” is a powerful documentary about how poverty has increased and not decreased. Most people would probably not guess this is the case. With all the advancements in society why can we not control poverty?  This film traces the roots of modern day poverty to colonialism. Since that time organizations like the […]

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

July 11, 2010

Before there was Harry Potter there was Narnia.  Here is the official trailer of C.S. Lewis’ The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  This is the third book and film in Lewis’ seven part series.  The great thing about these books and films is they touch on Christian themes.  The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe […]

Most of the people we encounter in the Bible are on the move.  The first thing Abraham is asked to do is to leave his family, friends, and home and go to a new country.  In the New Testament Jesus and His disciples do not stay in one place very long.  They go from town to […]
