Disheveled Theologian: What's in a name?
I had a laugh recently when an old persona came to haunt me. I hadn’t heard from this particular person in a long time. When she showed up,...

Column: It’s “Boxing Day,’ and there’s much to be thankful for
Boxes, boxes and more boxes. Boxes are my life right now. For a while I was constantly on the lookout for boxes. My eyes would hone in on an empty box sitting innocently on a desk and I became a spy, a headhunter of box talent. “That’s a nice box you’ve got there. Do you still...

Column: "Dusting" off the memories
This may seem hard to believe, but despite the fact that my father was a pilot, I only flew once with him at the controls. He was flying a medevac helicopter in Duluth at the time. My mom and I happened to show up at the office just as he was about to refuel in Superior. We hopped...

Disheveled Theologian: Twenty years later, still glad to have him with me
Twenty-two years ago exactly, I met a boy. It was the end of my first summer working at Covenant Park Bible Camp, up in Mahtowa, Minn., about 30 miles south of Duluth. I met this boy -- I kept forgetting his name -- at a College and Career retreat. I didn’t pay much attention to...

Disheveled Theologian: Making the most out of compost
When I was a kid, growing up on Orcas Island, Wash., August meant long summer days of 75 degree temperatures; playing on the beach; picking blackberries in a meadow down the road from our house; and breathing in the warm, woodsy smell of the drying grass. Orcas boasts 247 days of...

The Disheveled Theologian: Home sweet home
It’s hard to write when your eyes are swimming with tears. The letters on the keyboard get blurry and I must rely on the muscle memory of my fingers. Oh, how I remember the repetitions in typing class when I was in 10th grade. I can still hear the teacher’s voice chanting: jkl;...

Last week our 16-year-old son, Ian, embarked on an adventure. It wasn’t a grand adventure, exactly. He’s not backpacking across Europe or trekking through the Boundary Waters. He’s not even hosting a birthday party for a pack of preschoolers (certainly one of the most adventurous...

Column: Father knows best
I woke up on the morning of Dec. 4, 1991, ready for a typical day of college life. I’d go to class, head over to work at the dorm’s mail desk for a little while before lunch, then squeeze in some homework before hanging out with friends. Maybe, if I was feeling ambitious, I’d...

Column: Shadows of love
I sat in church on Sunday listening to the sermon and had an inspiration for my column. This isn’t unusual. I often am inspired at that time to jot down ideas for possible future writings. I have returned, however, to doing this the old fashioned way — with pencil and the edges...

Last week we had the unexpected pleasure of a visit from some acquaintances. I’d only met them once, and my husband and children never had, but when I saw via the Information Superhighway that they were driving by on I-90, I let them know that they’d be welcome to stop by our...
