Disheveled Theologian: The great mustard gas incident
I think I accidentally almost poisoned my family with mustard gas. I was making brine for a pork shoulder that would eventually become a meal of red beans and rice. The recipe called for apple cider vinegar, mustard seeds and a few other less potent ingredients. I mixed everything...

Disheveled Theologian: Finding good in unexpected places
The last of the Christmas decorations have long since been put away — even the ones that had been forgotten in random corners. The hope of Easter is still a long way off. It is frigid outside, and windy, and my back yard is a vast expanse of ice, upon which strangers set up tiny...

Disheveled Theologian: Beware the fanged worms
When I lived in West Berlin, West Germany, in the late 1980’s, I attended Berlin American High School. The school was comprised mostly of the children of military personnel, but there were also a dozen or more “Pan Am” kids like me, as well as quite a few diplomats kids filling...

Disheveled Theologian: Birthday aspirations
I’m writing this while sitting by the window, gazing out at the snow-covered lake, thankful to be indoors but also enjoying the view. It’s my birthday today — the day I’m writing , not the day you’re reading — and it’s nice to take a little time to relax and bask in...

Disheveled Theologian: Theological Stocking Stuffers, Week 7 -- Stop and think about it
“Take one day at a time,” they say. “Make lists. Check them twice. Don’t be overwhelmed by the big picture.” Easier said than done. Problem is, I like the big picture. I want to see it. But it’s obscured by all the little pixels of the daily obligations.

Disheveled Theologian: Theological Stocking Stuffers, Week 6: Imperfections are welcome
Mary had to have been exhausted. Sure, she was young and resilient, but she was nine months pregnant! She’d been riding on a donkey, been rejected at the inn, had nothing but hay plumped up to be her pillow. And now she was in labor and had to shove over the animals so that she...
