Disheveled Theologian: It's good to be reminded ...
I’m sitting in a hotel room in Munich, Germany, as I write. My husband is at a trade show and I tagged along. We’re heading to Berlin for a day and a half after leaving Munich. It’s been seven years since I’ve been in Berlin, my former home, and I’m getting excited.

Disheveled Theologian: Won't you be my neighbor?
I just got done viewing “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”, the documentary about Mr. Rogers. The filmmakers did a wonderful job of showing us who Fred Rogers was, of explaining the things he stood for. Things like love. And acceptance. And respect for children as intelligent and emotion-filled...

The Disheveled Theologian: Hope in the midst of our grief
Grief. It’s what’s on my mind. Not, “Good grief, Charlie Brown,” which is a phrase I’ve used often enough — though when parsing it out, one can’t help but wonder how the phrase came about — but bad grief. Real, heart-wrenching, aching grief.

Column: How I survived the college drop-off
I don’t have the words (which is not something I say very often) to describe taking one’s child to college and then driving away. He didn’t turn around to wave as we pulled out of the parking lot. Which was not necessarily a bad thing.
