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...

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...

Column: The Burden O’ the Green
Last Thursday was St. Patrick’s Day and, when your last name is O’Donnell, that means it comes with a little baggage. Or, as I like to call it: The Burden O’ the Green. Names come with expectations. Name your child “Edsel” and he’ll — at least by the older generations...
