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 '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: 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...
