Barack Obama’s silence about the protests in Iran is telling. So much for Obama’s alleged influence on international affairs.

It is prudent for Barack Obama to be silent right now. It would be a mistake to allow anyone in Iran to make the issue about the United States… which is what would happen if our president started to publicly take sides in the dispute. Not speaking publicly does not mean nothing is happening and does not mean that he has no influence.

John and Nancy present two sides of addressing this issue. Caution as to avoid becoming a PR lightening rod, or outspoken criticism on behalf of justice and against opppression.
How does the United States handle this?
How do we as Christians handle this?

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou
