A few years ago, my husband was in a car accident. Fortunately, no one was hurt. In fact, he was hit while sitting idle at a stop light! But, as anyone who has been involved in an automobile accident can tell you, the experience leads to endless documentation and telephone calls with insurance agents and claims adjustors and body shops. And so it was with us. On one such conversation with the at-fault driver's insurance company about the damage to be repaired, the adjuster said, "This car has surely been in other accidents! At least two of the dents in the passenger door could not have been caused by this accident." We were surprised. The car, although relatively worn and old, had not been in other accidents and we did not remember any prior damage.

What’s so delightful about Martha Spong’s new book, There’s a Woman in the Pulpit, is that she lets a little girl make the case in the book’s opening chapter written by the Rev. Ruth Everhart. Indignant at the injustice of her family’s church leadership refusing to ordain her mother—or any woman—young Hannah Everhart declared to her mother: "Even a first grader knows you’re a good minister. Stupid-heads!"

This article is a portion of Buechner's commentary about preaching when he spoke at the Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College in April 2004.
"For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God" (Colossians 3:3). How exactly does this 'spiritual dying' fit in with the practice of contemplative spirituality? One reader of this blog is curious about this.
