David Crumm: The Martha Spong interview about her book and RevGalBlogPals

ReadTheSpirit.com

David Crumm

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!"

Carol Howard Merritt: What the Church Can't Do for Pastors

The Rev. Carol Howard Merritt (PCUSA)

A friend was going to seminary, and she became very disappointed that someone in her home church did not send her a birthday card. When I heard this story, I thought that the church probably did her a favor, because it’s good to know that there are a lot of things that the church cannot do for you once you become a pastor.

ON Scripture SPECIAL: Death Penalty for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: A Call for Radical Mercy by Shane Claiborne

ON Scripture: The Bible

It’s hard to have mercy for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. It was Jesus who said, 'Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.'
