Disheveled Theologian: The seven last words of Christ -- forgiveness
It’s not often that I plan ahead for my column. I do like to have a couple ideas in mind, things to mull over as I go about my business, but it doesn’t always happen. When it comes to Advent and Lent, however, I always make a definite plan. Or at least I try to. This year when...

Disheveled Theologian: 'Polly put the kettle on;
It’s snowing. Again. And that makes me want a cup of tea. Tea is in my blood, though it took me 40 years to be comfortable with that. I have mentioned before that my Grandma and Grandpa Fraser came from Scotland. And, like any true member of the United Kingdom, they took their...

Disheveled Theologian: Joy in the snow?
OK, last week I said I wouldn’t give airtime to the nasty weather we’re having, but this week I can hardly ignore it: we have so much snow! It’s filling our ditches and narrowing our roads and slopping up our driveways and piling up in our parking lots and filling our vision...

Disheveled Theologian: Of lobsters and love
There are two things on my mind this week and I don’t want to write about one of them. I bet you can guess what that is. It has four letters and starts with an “s” and ends in a “w”. Likewise with the corresponding four-letter-word that starts with a “w” and ends with...

Disheveled Theologian: Tooth fairy trauma
I was in kindergarten when it happened. My first dental-related memory. I was riding the bus to school, squeezed onto an overcrowded seat. It was an old bus. The kind with no “cush” in the cushions. The kind where you felt every bump on the road. The kind with a metal bar on the...

Disheveled Theologian: Compassion in the storm
Ah, winter. Such a loaded word. A word that, after the temperatures of this past week, makes me shiver. Winter in Minnesota is far more exciting than winter was growing up in Washington State. On Orcas Island, we rarely saw snow. But if we did, by golly, we were almost guaranteed...

Disheveled Theologian: A history of piano lessons, part two
Last week I talked about how traumatic my piano lesson years were. But the trauma didn’t end. Sure, it took a break for a few years, but then I woke up one day and faced the worrisome decision of subjecting my children to that same trauma.

Disheveled Theologian: A history of piano lessons in 721 words
When I was a kid back on the island, my parents had pretty straightforward expectations of my two sisters and me. We would do well in school. We would behave. We would be kind and honest and obedient. We would go to church. And, only slightly less important, we would take piano lessons....

Disheveled Theologian: Light in the darkness
It’s never as much fun to de-decorate as it is to decorate. I never anticipate with joy how the de-decorating process will look, how exciting it will be to see the house void of its Christmas splendor, how great all the boxes will look, stacked up in the closet under the stairs....

Disheveled Theologian: A perspective of trust
I’m writing this on my birthday. It’s one of those birthdays where people sometimes stop counting. Depending on my mood, I either embrace my birthday or I panic. I haven’t yet decided which I’m going to do this year.

Disheveled Theologian: The Wordless Book colors of Christmas -- Green
My guess is that there won’t be many people who disagree with me that green is a color of Christmas. You’ve got your green wreaths. Your green Christmas trees. Your green holly. Elves seem to wear a lot of green. So I guess that proves it. As I wracked my brain for other green...
