Juvenile Justice System

Our nation needs to have a serious conversation about the state of our juvenile justice system. Like our broader criminal justice system, it is broken and riddled with racial and class biases. However, unlike our broader criminal justice system, very few people are talking about and illuminating the problems inherent within our juvenile justice system. […]

True False Prophets

Bill Johnson, Randy Clark and Heidi Baker aren’t false prophets, as some wrongfully claim, but who then are true false prophets? About a month ago I argued in a Youtube video that several charismatic leaders are falsely accused if being false prophets by primarily Christian internet warriors; many of them are even accused of being … Continue reading

Nothing Can Separate       

I’ve been thinking often over the last few days and weeks about the last three verses of the magnificent eight chapter of Paul’s letter to the church in Rome:
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,

neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Canada’s national religion

The NHL playoffs are upon us! This year, with four of the five Canadian teams not really expected to be in the playoffs and making an exciting run to beat out recent defending champions [LA Kings and Boston Bruins], it has been particularly engaging for many of us. Unfortunately four are playing each other but we know that at least two of the five will make it to the second round! Some people have said that hockey is Canada’s national religion and there is evidence for this: a television altar around which the faithful are gathered to witness the battle of good vs. evil, heroes vs. villains; they wear special clothing indicating allegiances; they consume a special version of bread and wine, i.e. chips and beer; there are prophecies about the outcomes; the psalms of both praise and deprecation are uttered with deep emotion, the playoffs are the high point of the liturgical year… we could go on.

God’s intervention and control

There’s breaking news and there’s the ticker on the bottom of the screen. There’s, “We interrupt this program to bring you….” and there’s the tiny section that says, “In other news…” The ending of Acts 12 is typically seen as the latter. It doesn’t matter. It’s small. It’s insignificant. Let’s hurry up and get through […]

A Fashion Show–With a Larger Goal

Harrisonburg’s Green Hummingbird Fair Trade Clothing Store There I was sitting in the first row beside a fashion model’s runway. We’ve all seen the runways on TV or magazines—sparkly lights, photographer flashes going off, models strutting with exaggerated sways down the “catwalk.” What was I doing there? It wasn’t a New York or Paris runway […]
