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...

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...

Well, Lent is ticking away and I have a third “stand-out” phrase for you today. This one comes along in Luke, Chapter 23. Jesus had been brought to see Herod, who happened to be in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus’ arrest. He was brought to him because Pilate was trying to pass...
