As the nation celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, many are discussing what Dr. King would say to the nation and world today and tell us to do.

When we say someone "follows Jesus," what exactly do we mean? The problem is not with the word "Jesus," it's with the concept of "following."

There is a policy myth is that churches and charities alone could take care of the problems of poverty -- especially if we slashed taxes. But this really has more to do with libertarian political ideology than good theology.

If our political leaders won't make room for the "strangers" among us, we, the people of faith, will. It's time to stop playing politics with people's lives.

This was an unusually strong year, with many films worth recommending. Last year, I thought the five nominees were all good choices. Unfortunately, this year was different, and two of the five nominees were not even in my top ten.
