The church I attend, First Covenant Church in Worthington, has embarked on a journey for the season of Lent — plus a few days more. Starting last week we began reading through the entire New Testament. We plan to be done Easter weekend. We meet weekly in small groups to discuss...

Disheveled Theologian: Ornithology 101
As I look out my window at the lake these days it’s impossible not to think of one word in particular: rotten. The ice is rotten. It’s no...

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: 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: National remembrance of being traumatized day
I tore off the page from my daily calendar on the 23rd of January, little knowing that doing so would usher in a world of insecurities and memories. There, on the newly revealed calendar page for that day, was a hippopotamus writing very neatly, in cursive. Beneath the unlikely...

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: Sometimes it’s OK to lose
I arrived a few minutes early for a meeting, so I settled down into a comfortable chair to wait. I reached on top of my head to pull my reading glasses down to my eyes and realized that in my hurry to leave home, I had forgotten my glasses. I had a moment of alarm. How was I supposed...

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.

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...
