An Uneasy Agent of the State: Part 3, Pastor as Prophet (Continued)

Where would we be had we taken seriously the reality that marriage as practiced is indeed a civil union? The purview of the State would be clearer and the role of the Christian community would be evident. (more…)

An Uneasy Agent of the State: Part 3 – Pastor as Prophet

“You can’t be Christian and support torture,” writes Brian Zhand. And, you can’t pastor if unwilling to be prophetic. Despite the continued effort to make chaplains of pastors, there comes a time when one must wake from slumber. (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

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.
