Traveling the Nicene Road

(13) Comments | Posted June 30, 2011 | 5:20 PM

Traveling is an addiction for me. I love going to see new places, eat new foods and talk to new people. If left to my own devices, I probably would be a nomad, minus the tent and camel.

(15) Comments | Posted June 2, 2011 | 11:15 AM

Living in Ohio, the words: "tattoo," "scandal," "lies" and "integrity" have been a daily part of my conversation for the past few months. Ohio is a state that lives, breathes and eats Buckeye football. As can be expected, the events surrounding Jim Tressel will affect our state psyche for years...

In the past, no matter how much I read the Bible, I had thought that it didn't encourage questions or questioners. I soon realized that my call to questioners and my previous belief about the Bible had become incompatible.

(135) Comments | Posted March 19, 2011 | 8:55 PM

As I stood in line, I looked around at everyone in line. Science T-shirts abounded with sayings like, "Stand Back, I'm about to do Science," "Evolve" and "Teach the Controversy."

Sacramental Horror Stories: Shining Light Into the Darkness of the Human Heart

(146) Comments | Posted March 3, 2011 | 12:27 AM

As a kid growing up in Southern Indiana, I wasn't allowed to watch horror movies, like Friday the 13th or Halloween. Having kids myself, I now completely understand why I wasn't allowed. The last thing I want to deal with in the middle of the night is a screaming 7-year-old...

A Ministry of Dialoguing about Doubt

(246) Comments | Posted February 12, 2011 | 8:42 PM

"You are such a doubting Thomas."

Many people have heard the phrase "Doubting Thomas" applied to them in a conversation with a radical believer. The conversation might go something like this, "I seriously doubt the Cubs will ever win the World Series in my lifetime." The fanatic Cub fan would...
