O Me of Little Faith

A couple of weeks ago, the Internet blew up when Parke Kunkle, an astronomy instructor in Minneapolis, noted for the Star-Tribune that due to the Earth’s axis wobble and something called precession, astrologers are currently one month off in their Zodiac signs. Which means EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT WHO YOU ARE (based, of…

Well, after 25 guest posts, we’ve reached a good round number for the Voices of Doubt series, and today’s post by Alise Wright will be the final one. I hope you’ve enjoyed the series as much as I have. To me, it’s been encouraging to hear from so many excellent writers and thinkers about the…

My long-time friend, Mentanna, is a former career missionary trying to make the transition back to life in the United States. She and her family have been visiting churches in the “Bible Belt” and trying to find a place to get involved. It’s been difficult. A few months ago, she wrote an open letter to…

Today’s a day when we all like to quote “I Have a Dream,” and really, you can’t go wrong with that. But some of my favorite Martin Luther King, Jr., quotes come from Strength to Love, a collection of sermons, composed in the thick of the civil rights struggle, about non-violence, forgiveness, and the radical…

I always appreciate pastoral voices who can speak compassionately and candidly about doubt, and one of those I appreciate most is Ray Hollenbach’s. Ray is on staff at a Vineyard church in the exact center of Kentucky, where he lives with his wife, Kim and the last of their three children. After twenty years in…

I haven’t posted anything yet about Saturday’s shooting in Arizona. Not because I don’t have anything to say about it, but because I’m not sure that my opinion matters.

After six months’ worth of guest posts, my Friday Voices of Doubt series wraps up in the next few weeks. It’s been great hearing from so many different writers and thinkers on the impact doubt has had on their faith. I hope you’ve been enjoying it as much as I have. Once the series concludes,…

Sarah Cunningham and I first got to know each other when I interviewed her upon the release of her latest book, Picking Dandelions: A Search for Eden Among Life’s Weeds. It’s an excellent memoir. Sarah is a social activist, a former church staffer, and currently a high school teacher in Michigan. We share a publisher…

So you asked some important questions on Tuesday and got a lot of feedback. Have you come to any decisions? Maybe. Don’t play coy with me, young man. I discovered some interesting things about my readers. Do tell. Well, they’re pretty fantastic, for one thing. I really do appreciate the honesty with which they responded…

I need your help. I began blogging in 2007, which really wasn’t that long ago unless you’re talking Internet years, which makes 2007 the digital equivalent of the Pleistocene epoch. Since December of 2007 I have written five books: Pocket Guide to the Afterlife, Pocket Guide to Sainthood, O Me of Little Faith, and two…
