Peacemaker Conference LiveBlogs

In just a few hours, I will be leaving to serve at The 2015 Peacemaker Conference: The Rhythm of Peace. In addition to teaching, I also have the joy of liveblogging the plenary sessions. If you have no idea what liveblogging is, you are in good company! I just heard the term for the first time a few years ago. Basically, LiveBlogs provide continuous …

How Fred Responded When I Asked Him Last Week if I Had Ruined His Life

Last week was a particularly hard week for Fred and me. At one point, seeing the marks of searing pain on Fred’s face (again), I was overcome by the sense that all of his worst suffering in life was because of me. (Maybe not entirely because of me, since, sure, I know my theology and I know we have three real enemies: Satan, the world, our flesh. …

(As the stats for my “It’s a Grace to be Fat” article easily attest …

Grace-driven acceptance of a person does not mean open-ended availability …

I read a lot when I am in a season of insomnia (like right now). I try to pray, too. And sometimes I even exercise! But mostly, I read. Old stuff, new stuff; happy stuff, blue stuff. OK. Not really blue stuff—but exhaustion also makes me punchy, so sometimes the silliness comes out in Seussian rhymes. And gaffes. (Like last …
