Easter - Year B

April 05, 2015

The Rev. Dr. Christoph Keller, III (TEC)

In the summer of 1979, I left Harvard for the priesthood. I was twenty-four years old, newly married, and had been a first-year graduate student working towards a Ph.D. in American History.

Frederick Schmidt: Reimagining the Church

The Rev. Dr. Frederick Schmidt (TEC)

The phrase, 'think globally, act locally' is attributed to Patrick Geddes, a Scottish philanthropist, town planner, biologist, and sociologist. The idea, though not the exact phrase, appears in his book, Cities in Evolution, which was published in 1915. Well ahead of his time, Geddes was at pains to argue for an approach to urban planning that took the surrounding environs into account.

ON Scripture: The Bible

The Rev. Dr. Matthew Skinner (PCUSA)

The author of Mark was a minimalist. We get an empty tomb, a promise, and frightened disciples who stay silent when they’re invited to share the news. Finis. Roll credits.
