Disheveled Theologian: What’s behind that curtain? A few thoughts during Lent, week 5
The phrase which stood out to me this week, comes immediately after last week’s phrase, in Luke chapter 23, verse 45. Jesus was seconds away from dying, he’s about to breathe his last, and then, the Bible tells us, “the curtain of the temple was torn in two.”

Disheveled Theologian: Forsaken -- A few thoughts during Lent, week 4
Throughout Lent, I’ve been writing about phrases which stand out to me in the Easter story. Truth be told, the entire crucifixion passage is rather stand-out. I mean, here’s Jesus, nailed to a couple beams of wood, still loving the people around him and forgiving them of their...

Disheveled Theologian: Performance review: A few thoughts during Lent, week 3
Well, Lent is ticking away and I have a third “stand-out” phrase for you today. This one comes along in Luke, Chapter 23. Jesus had been brought to see Herod, who happened to be in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus’ arrest. He was brought to him because Pilate was trying to pass...

Disheveled Theoloigian: Caught red handed -- A few thoughts during Lent, week 2
I mentioned last week that I will be doing a series during Lent, covering phrases which stand out to me in the Easter story. Last week we looked at Jesus’ declaration that he came to earth to be a servant, a statement he made towards the end of their celebration of the Passover...

Disheveled Theologian: Some thoughts on love in this Valentines week
“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.” If I say the things that a mother is supposed to say to her children, but don’t do it in love, I am no better than a blaring YouTube video.

Disheveled Theologian: A Parisian adventure
I recently finished reading a book about cooking and eating and food. I describe it that way because, while it did contain a few recipes, it was more about the author’s life in relation to food than it was about actual recipes. As I finished reading the book, I couldn’t help...

Disheveled Theologian: National remembrance of being traumatized day

Disheveled Theologian: A 'd-icey' adventure
All this ice on the lake brings back a few memories of my childhood. Well, two, to be exact. That’s the number of times I recall the lakes freezing hard enough to walk on, on Orcas Island, Wash., where I grew up. One year, when the temperature stayed below freezing for days on...
