Column: Shaking Up the Sanctuary
Have you ever stopped to think about the significance of the sanctuary you sit in every Sunday morning at church? Not to get all deep and philosophical on you, but what is the point of a peaked-roofed sanctuary? What is the history of the church, not as The Body of Christ but as a...

Disheveled Theologian: What's in a name?

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...

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...
