Disheveled Theologian: Unremarkable things
When you were little did you poke around your parents’ desks, opening drawers and digging around in corners where you had no business digging? I might have done that. OK, I did. No “might have” about it. I remember finding interesting things:

Disheveled Theologian: The fish and the Victorian novels (or, How to live through the sexual revolution and still remain successfully repressed)
Shall I embark on a topic of conversation I rarely touch upon? Or shall I speak of something less awkward? Oh, OK, I give in. What topic, you ask? The birds and the bees. Or, in this case, the fish and the Victorian novels.

Disheveled Theologian: The most surreal moment in my life
A few years ago my sister brought me to see the new library in Eastsound, the town where I grew up on Orcas Island, Wash. The old library — where I knew every nook and cranny, where I came for story time, for puppet shows, for the Library Fair — has become a real estate office....

Disheveled Theologian: School bus lessons
“Cool,” I thought to myself as I stepped onto the bus, 10ish years old, hair in pigtails, my Charlie Brown lunchbox clutched in my hands, “an empty seat.” I sat down, scooted to the window, and smiled. Only then did I realize that there were words all around me. Words flung...

Disheveled Theologian: Loony for loons
I am obsessed with watching the birds on the lake. The wood ducks, which I’d only seen once before, are adorable. The Eagles, as I have mentioned previously in this column, I love. (Especially when they fly within 15 feet of my kitchen window as they did last Friday.) Even the...

Disheveled Theologian: To believe or not to believe -- a few thoughts during Lent, week 7
It’s Good Friday today, the day we commemorate Jesus’ death on the cross for our sins. “Good” Friday. Not “Sad Friday” or “Scandalous Friday” or “Terrifying Friday”. No, this is a day we call “good.”

Disheveled Theologian: Fear of the tightrope -- a few thoughts during Lent, week 6
Have you ever gotten a fleeting thought that you really should double check on something? The thought goes in and out of your mind, and maybe you do something about it and maybe you don’t. Well, I had one of those last week. It went something like this, “Are you sure that the...

Disheveled Theologian: What’s behind that curtain? A few thoughts during Lent, week 5
The phrase which stood out to me this week, comes immediately after last week’s phrase, in Luke chapter 23, verse 45. Jesus was seconds away from dying, he’s about to breathe his last, and then, the Bible tells us, “the curtain of the temple was torn in two.”

Disheveled Theologian: Forsaken -- A few thoughts during Lent, week 4
Throughout Lent, I’ve been writing about phrases which stand out to me in the Easter story. Truth be told, the entire crucifixion passage is rather stand-out. I mean, here’s Jesus, nailed to a couple beams of wood, still loving the people around him and forgiving them of their...

Disheveled Theoloigian: Caught red handed -- A few thoughts during Lent, week 2

Disheveled Theologian: Some thoughts on love in this Valentines week
“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.” If I say the things that a mother is supposed to say to her children, but don’t do it in love, I am no better than a blaring YouTube video.

Disheveled Theologian: A Parisian adventure
I recently finished reading a book about cooking and eating and food. I describe it that way because, while it did contain a few recipes, it was more about the author’s life in relation to food than it was about actual recipes. As I finished reading the book, I couldn’t help...
