Column: Searching for whales and mountains in the middle of the prairie
I grew up on an island in Washington State, in a cliff-top house with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean. Straight across the water stood Mt. Baker, a snow-topped, actively-volcanic mountain that coughed up steam from time to time for our amusement. Orca whales would...

The Disheveled Theologian: Contentment key to giving thanks
By Gretchen O'Donnell Thanksgiving. A time of food, family, and togetherness, yes? When I was 17 years old and still fondly dreamed that someday I’d be a famous opera singer, I ditched the traditional food and even my family to spend Thanksgiving in Tunisia with some friends....

The purpose-driven Easter egg
It’s Holy Week. A busy, meaningful, beautiful time of year. Easter is my favorite holiday. This is true not just for obvious reasons (theology,...

“Clang, rattle, clang ...” The noise puzzled me as I stood on a railroad platform, waiting for the train that would take me to see the famous Bridge Over the River Kwai. It was the summer of 1989, and I was in Thailand. “Clang, drag, rattle, clang …” The sound was so...

Column: The good part
One of my favorite television shows to have on in the background while I’m doing dishes or other mundane household tasks is “Antiques Roadshow.” I particularly enjoy the British version. I was discussing the merits of both versions with a friend the other day, and he said, “On...

Column: Seeking peace in the lap of God
I was sitting upstairs the other evening, too tired to read a book, too disinterested in any television to bother watching. I was just considering heading to bed even though it was only 9:30, when suddenly the quiet was interrupted by the sounds of sniffles and tears. I turned my...

Column: The family of God
I recently attended a funeral. It was the first one I’d been to in a long time, because often I’m helping out in the kitchen or unable to attend for some reason. As my husband and I sat down and I looked around the church, heard the lovely hymns played in the background, saw...

The pageantry of it all
WORTHINGTON — I love Christmas pageants. Love watching them, loved being in them when I was young, loudly singing (so I’m told) “the ‘‘’tars...

Unexpected blessings from a locked door
WORTHINGTON — On a chilly morning about a month ago, seconds after I waved goodbye to my husband and kids on their way to work and school, I received a text from my son. “Mom! Pls get pics of moon! Dad says good camera not phone.” “Oh, that’s right,” I thought, glancing...

Column: The things we cannot see
The last time I read this book I didn’t need glasses! I thought to myself as I picked up a beloved book and opened to page one. I’m not so sure I like getting older. Not that I am all that old, mind you. But still, the fact that my birthday is rapidly approaching gives a girl...

Column: That which seems impossible
Next month, Nov. 9, 2014, marks 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. West Berlin was home to me at the time, although I was off at college when the wall actually opened. My parents still lived there, however, and I came home for Christmas five weeks later to see in person the...

Column: A new friend can be an answer to prayer
WORTHINGTON — Inevitably, when the calendar flips to August and back-to-school sales fill the aisles of the stores, I find myself feeling a wee bit nostalgic for freshly-sharpened pencils and brand-spanking-new three-ring binders. Not that I particularly want to go back to school,...
