Mother’s Day, one holiday in the life of a working pastor mom

For me mother’s day is getting up around 6am to help my children get ready for church. I get their clothing (laundry being the only thing my husband doesn’t like to do AT ALL). I actually had laid out our clothing the night before, but my leggings for under my tunic on a rainy day … Continue reading

#RejectedSermonTitles : this week Song of Solomon is about #Sex

Why is Song of Solomon in the Bible? Seriously, what is with the Bible having a book that is written by a human to a human being? (There used to be a Jesus as the Bridegroom and Church as the Bride interp. but its frankly sexist and old fashioned) Here are two people expressing love … Continue reading

#church and #risky behavior

I know that this sounds crazy, but to me the Church is the risk-taking entity in the universe. We opens our doors and lets anybody, I mean anybody walk in. We concocts a budget based on what people try to promise to give We employ people based on that budget We try to help people … Continue reading

And the burning of the African-American Churches proves racism to be a real and prevalent problem, one which Bree has shown some light … Continue reading

#Christianity, you keep saying that word, I don’t think it means what you think it means

1. Christianity to me isn’t about finding all the answers, but asking the essential questions (look at the Gospel its people asking Christ ?s and Christ asking people ?s) gathering together and acknowledging that God is bigger and greater than our understanding of things, and we’d rather see thing more God’s way than our own … Continue reading

Transgendered and Ministry

Being Transgendered is living into the reality and wholeness of yourself. Mary McKibbean Dana attempts to write about Pastoring to a trangendered person (I say attempts because she admits she still learning) So here our my unsorted thoughts about being Trans…. I, in my secret-most parts, wish the church was the FIRST place people feel … Continue reading

Surprise!?! #diversity, #love and #easter #reclaimholyweek

Christ is Risen Christ is Risen, Indeed! What a funny recitation, its as if we don’t believe eachtother that Christ was resurrection, as if its a surprise to us. Its only sort of a surprise, it reminds me of a Stenta Surprise ( my husband and various members of that family) The Stenta side of … Continue reading
