I’m Featured in the New Humanist About Working in Heaven

It's the topic that never seems to go away (sorry!) My first post on this topic was in 2012, but just a few weeks ago I wrote this in response--and amplification--to an article which featured my first post in, of all places, MEL Magazine (a secular publication for men.) Now Ralph Jones has written a …

Things Going Your Way? A Holy Week Reflection

Many of you know that I used to work for the Church of God Department of Lay Ministries.  One of my colleagues, who did most of the graphic design work, was a good friend in addition to being a coworker.  Sometimes he'd greet me with the phrase, "Things going your way?" It's an easy way …

Why Did They Cancel Charles and Mary Beard?

I recently completed reading Charles and Mary Beard's The Rise of American Civilization, which at one time was one of the most influential texts on the subject.  The Beards, as is typical with textbooks in general, frequently revised the text, mostly adding to the end to keep that up to date.  The version I read …

The Problem With Social Justice is That It Always Involves Changing Someone Else

Anne Kennedy makes an interesting observation in her piece "What is Really the Problem?": Second, human people are wicked. All people.

Work in Heaven? Rubbish!

I got this shout-out from MEL Magazine's Miles Klee about my 2012 piece on working in heaven: I was thankful to turn up one guy, Don C. Warrington, who, though a practicing Christian and once employed by the Church of God, wasn’t having this bull****. “The Scriptures are not very detailed on what our life …

ACNA: About That Celibacy Thing…

Edgar Noble's piece Yes to Gay Identity, No to Gay Sex? The Concept Shaking the Foundations of the ACNA is a thought-provoking piece on a subject that, to be honest, I didn't think would come up this quickly in the ACNA's life.  As I noted in the last post, we have TEC, why do people …

ACNA, TEC and Those Social Justice Prayers

It's worth noting that the following appears in the (relatively) new 2019 ACNA Book of Common Prayer: For those of you who think this has its origins in that dreadful 1979 BCP, this also appears in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer: Other than the modernisation of the language and the expanded doxology at the …
