First Principles

July 18, 2017

This past week my wife held a conversation using the app Meetup to bring folks together to discuss spirituality and religion. I went with her this week and the question we discussed was, “What is your guiding principle in life?” We had a diverse group of people with various backgrounds and experiences and unsurprisingly the […]

An Opportunity for Gordon College

October 21, 2014

In July I wrote three entries dealing with the media firestorm that Gordon College in Massachusetts had been facing. While the school is no longer making daily headlines they are still grappling with the fallout of those events. The current situation is they are taking 12 to 18 months to review their policies as relates […]

Louie Giglio in the news.

January 11, 2013

This news story is yet another example of what Christians and evangelicals (my faith) will have to deal with in coming months […]

Defending Church

November 7, 2010

It is easy to knock church these days. Organized religion is being seen less and less as a positive thing. At best it is seen as a boring, unimportant, harmless chore for unusually dedicated folk to do to feel better about themselves. At worst it is a unsafe incubator of hate, distrust, scandal and secrets, […]

Remember the 1st amendment?

September 18, 2010

A story recently broke in the Boston area that I found interesting not only because of the mild controversy it has caused but because of the (in my view) troubling views of people who have commented on the event. Here is my understanding of what happened. A group of 6th-graders from the suburb town of Wellesley went on a […]
