Column: A disheveled commencement
Every year when graduation season rolls around, I get nostalgic. In my mind I pull out the caps and gowns of days gone by and recall high school, college, and seminary with great fondness. The graduation ceremony in and of itself, however, is often remembered as more of an event...

Column: The gift of an ordinary day
I sat down at my desk the other morning to write my column, but got distracted by several reminders that popped up on my computer. So I began to write a “to do” list for the week. It steadily grew longer and longer until I decided that I needed to stop lest I risk Total Brain...

Column: These hands
On Easter Sunday morning I stood, along with three others, at the front of the church, holding a shiny tray filled with communion cups as the people of the congregation came forward to receive the elements. It makes me nervous, serving communion. I worry that I’ll drop the tray....

The nose knows
It started with a small thing. About the size of a grain of salt. OK, actually more like the size of a small chunk of water softener salt. My daughter, age 3 at the time, discovered a few of these small pebbles of salt that had spilled on the floor. She, being of curious mind and...

Column: Picking the right Christmas tree
When I was a kid, it was always a huge deal to go with Dad and pick out our Christmas tree. My sisters and I would pile into the car, and we’d drive — not to the nearest Christmas tree farm or even pre-cut lot (there were none on the island where I lived) — but rather to wherever...

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...
