Belong

Do you ever feel like you find yourself in social or religious circles that expect you to fit a mold that you just don’t?  You’re not alone.   On June 15-16, my Liturgist cohort, Science Mike and I will be hosting our first ever multi-day Liturgist event.  A group of 100 hopeful misfits will be gathering in Atlanta to have some open, honest and meaningful conversation about art, faith, science and why some of us keep coming back to the Table.     This event lies at the core of why we ...

Wild

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” – Mary Oliver I was not sad to see 2014 go.

I greatly appreciate the positive support we have had and wanted to respond with a level head to it all… I went to bed three nights ago with a fair amount of anxiety. The past three months have been the hardest Michael and I have ever faced. They say things come in threes, but you just don’t expect for the grouping of three to happen ...

I’m with You (Part 2)

If you asked any Christian before the birth of the modern era and the Enlightenment, “what is the foundation of Christianity?”, they would say “Jesus Christ.”  If you asked many Christians that same question today in the post-Enlightenment world, they would respond, “the Bible.” Why is this? The sort of thinking that gave us modern medicine and sent a man to the moon. It’s good thinking on a number of levels. It helps human beings thrive in the world.  But the nature of ...
