Disheveled Theologian: The truth about fulfillment
One hundred. It’s a nice number. An even number. A celebratory number. Kids have parties on the 100th day of school. We have 100 pennies in a dollar. One hundred years of anything is worth commemorating. That being said, I can’t help but acknowledge that today marks the 100th...

The Disheveled Theologian: Let Freedom Ring!
It’s July first and that means two things to me: it’s my mother’s birthday and it’s Canada Day. My mom lived in Canada for a couple of years when she was young, and she always thought it was so nice that the entire nation celebrated her birthday along with her. All those fireworks,...

Disheveled Theologian: Treasure hunting
Summertime. And yes, the living is easy … most of the time. Well, sometimes. Well, right now, at least. Though I do have a deadline to meet, so that gives the “easy” a little less ease.

Disheveled Theologian: A CATastrophe in the making
It’s been a while since I wrote about our cats. (I checked.) So here goes. We have two cats. Two sweet, naughty cats. Here’s how the kitty math adds up: One stray cat (five and a half years ago) plus one neighbor’s cat (five and a half years plus a week or two) equals three...

Disheveled Theologian: Scents and sensibilities
Scent. They say that there is no memory-trigger more powerful. While I do not believe everything that “they” say, I do believe this. Have you ever stepped into a store, for example, and smelled something that immediately transported you to a different place?

Disheveled Theologian: Once upon a time 37 years and one week ago …
I really ought to have written about this last week. But I didn’t think of it last week, so I guess this week will have to do. Last Thursday — the day my column was in the paper — was an anniversary. May 18th, 1980. 37 years ago. At 8:32 a.m. Know what I’m talking about?

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: 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...
