Disheveled Theologian: Be strong and take heart
I have a confession to make. I don’t like waiting. There. I said it. In stark letters, for the world to read. I. Don’t. Like. Waiting.

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...

Disheveled Theologian: The poetry of grace
It was finals week of fall quarter, my sophomore year in college. My favorite class that term was a creative writing poetry class and I was excited to turn in my final project: a portfolio of all the poems I’d written, critiqued, edited, tweaked and perfected to the best of my abilities....

Disheveled Theologian: A 'd-icey' adventure
All this ice on the lake brings back a few memories of my childhood. Well, two, to be exact. That’s the number of times I recall the lakes freezing hard enough to walk on, on Orcas Island, Wash., where I grew up. One year, when the temperature stayed below freezing for days on...

Disheveled Theologian: I choose not to live in fear
Last week I wrote about my recent visit to several Christmas markets in Germany. Last night I heard that one market I visited years ago, in what was then downtown West Berlin, was attacked on Monday by someone driving a semi into the market, intentionally mowing down shoppers and...

Disheveled Theologian: Treffpunkt
I recently returned from a trip to Germany with my husband. Colin had a conference to attend and I was able to accompany him, thanks to his frequent flier miles and my sister’s willingness to come out from Washington and stay with our kids. We had a great time visiting castles...

Disheveled Theologian: The Santa Boat
Christmas memories make me smile. Mostly. I have one Christmas memory, however, that brings more of a grimace than a grin. For some reason, which I suppose was deemed charitable, Santa Claus used to visit Orcas Island in a boat. The Santa Boat would tie up next to the ferry dock and...

Column: Stepping out in faith
By Rita VanderKooi, Worthington Christian School WORTHINGTON -- Eight years ago, Worthington Christian School "stepped out" in faith. Needing more families from more churches to commit to sending their children, the school board decided to lower tuition. At first glance, it seemed...

Disheveled Thelogian: A feast, a robbery and a reason to give thanks
I have been writing my Disheveled Theologian column for two years now. I am enjoying it enormously. The first column I wrote was about Thanksgiving and I thought it would be fun to tell that first story again because, quite possibly, you might have missed it. When I was 17 years...

Column: Giving thanks where thanks is due
When I was growing up, Thanksgiving was always a grand affair. I don’t think Mom left the kitchen that entire week between the planning and the baking. By Tuesday she was making rolls and on Wednesday she was deep into the pies: pumpkin, apple, and sometimes pecan. Her crust --...
