Performing Contradictions

Rarely a day goes by where a post on social media characterizes the only available actions to thwart ISIS is to bomb them off the planet. Christians re-post this with regularity. It is performing a contradiction. (more…)

Doing Without In A Culture of More or, A Mashup of Sacks, Micheli, Kriz, and Rohr

We train our children early how to expect more. Later we prod them to temper their appetites and do with less. Unlearning what it feels like to have more poses more of a difficulty than we realize. The same is true when after establishing habits of more we hear Jesus' call for less. (more…)

Cancer and Tamed Cynic or, Jason Goes On the Offensive

I don't know if he has a face for radio, but he has a voice for preaching. It was the voice I heard on a podcast some time back that caught my attention. His words did not hurt either. But it was the voice. (more…)

Friday Photo . . . Cohen Alan’s Got His Hat and Bumbo

Grammy enjoyed her recent “snow-cation.” While she enjoys her job, the occasion provided her lots of time to think about and make some new things. I am not sure what is next on the “to make” list, but Cohen’s mom will launch her website full of crocheted creations at the end of this month – www.oikoshandmade.com. Could be that some of Grammy’s items show up. Who knows?

In the second photo for this week Cohen is on his Bumbo sporting some shoes grammy made. He has his feet out as if to say, “See my shoes?”

Enjoy. We do!

Friday Photo – “Like My Hat,” Cohen Alan

“Mommy likes to make me has to wear. Grammy does too.” For the past few weeks we have offered Cohen in a variety of “scenes” where, of course, he is the centerpiece.

When the girls got older and were not so keen on Mom making them things to wear, the sewing machine was put away. The serger was laid to rest. Yarn stayed in the closet.

Things have changed. The sewing machine and serger sit out on the table. Thread and yarn are in abundance. Patty has made some of Cohen’s hats. Kimberly has made others. Here is one of the more creative. What a “pose!” (Photo by Tommie Marshell)

Enjoy. We do.
