Kenneth L. Samuel: Somebody Say Something

The Rev. Dr. Kenneth L. Samuel (UCC)

National Geographic reports that the world's newest religion is no religion. The 'nones' (the religiously non-affiliated) now make up almost a quarter of the U.S. population. In the past decade, U.S. nones have overtaken Catholics, mainline Protestants and all followers of non-Christian faiths.

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton: At the Table Together

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton (ELCA)

Old recipes are precious things. They give instructions about how to prepare a dish, but they are so much more. They are filled with memories. They connect families as they are passed from one generation to the next. They bring events and people from long ago right into the present.

Carl McColman: What is the Relationship Between Contemplation and Privilege?

Carl McColman (other)

We live in a moment in history when, finally, our global human family seems to be starting to truly wrestle with the problems associated with systemic oppression — including racism, sexism, classism, and other ways in which we create social distinctions, or limit people’s freedom or opportunity, merely on the basis of their identity.

Frederick Schmidt: The Limits to Professional Boundaries

The Rev. Dr. Frederick Schmidt (TEC)

Over the years I’ve seen and read a number of articles about professional boundaries and their application to work in the church. Much of that literature is very helpful and stakes out areas where abuse and exploitation are all too possible. One has to be grateful for the reminders that literature provides and the protection that it offers for those who might be vulnerable in one way or another.

Rob Lee: Public Theology And Taylor Swift

The Rev. Robert Lee (UCC)

It’s confession time: I’m a huge Taylor Swift fan. I’m starting to identify with her more now that I’ve been thrust into the realm of public theology.

ON Scripture: Downward Dog: Finding God in a Dog (Philippians 2:1-13) By Melissa Tidwell

ON Scripture: The Bible

We didn’t have dogs in my family—we were cat people—so it was not until I was an adult that I first fell for a dog. Lucy, a Golden Retriever who came to live at my house was the one who changed my heart. She seemed gentler than other dogs I had been around.

Greg Carey: The Nashville Statement and the Decline of the Christian Right

Dr. Greg Carey (UCC)

Recently a group called the Coalition for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood – no, really, they call themselves that – created a small stir by issuing the 'Nashville Statement.' The statement and the lack of attention it’s receiving reveal the degree to which the old religious right has lost its capacity to influence public conversations.

UMC General Commission on Religion and Race: Being the “Blessed” Amidst Violence

United Methodist Church (UMC)

We are witnessing escalating violence in word and deed from brother to brother and sister to sister. And we experience fear and pain. We mourn and sorrow. We wonder if there is hope for righteousness and justice. We question, 'Will there be peace among us? When?'

Tony Robinson: Faith Is Simple (But Not Easy)

The Rev. Anthony Robinson (UCC)

It is easy to turn faith into an instrument of me getting what I want. But I kind of think faith is more about God getting what God wants, what God wants in and through us.
