Even more fascinating is many of these plot-lines are driven by writers who know are not looking to the bible for wisdom. God’s [...]

    Learning To Grieve And Grow By Sitting Shiva

      There’s this beautiful practice in Judaism called Shiva, the Hebrew word for seven. When an immediate family member passes away individuals will begin a weeklong morning period.

    Re-Reading Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart

    I first read Things Fall Apart in a World Civilizations course at Westmont College. World Civ was supposed to be one of the most challenging classes at Westmont, at least as far as gen eds were concerned, so I decided to take it during a Mayterm when I had nothing else going on.

    What is our posture towards guns?

    In the past few weeks (like almost everyone else), I’ve been thinking about guns.  Their place in our society, government’s role in regulation, activist groups’ responsibility, and so on.  There are arguments to be made for both sides of the gun control debate.  It’s not my purpose here to address those arguments.  The unfortunate fact is (and speaking as one [...]

    More Life Lessons from Howard Zinn

    Perhaps “More” is a misleading title for this post, considering I’ve never actually written about Zinn’s work here before. But, come on. Who hasn’t read A People’s History of the United States? Mr. Zinn, who passed away just a few years ago at the age of 87, has–I hope–taught us all some very important life lessons; or at the very [...]

Syria – Some things to think about

Syria seems to be looming large right now. I have a lot of concerns and questions. I lean towards a non-violent response always but, seeing some of those videos really does make you question what type of person would do that to his own people.
