Theology & Worldview

What I made

Chronicling one week of creating something out of something by hand.


A common thread

On the beauty of choosing the "by hand" way, while honoring the divine purposes of all human activity.

Virtually at home

Describing the world of Facebook and naming its alternative ecology.


Small life

On the complexity of simplicity and giving up the closet.

The story of our home

On reinforcing a sense of identity through loss.


Joy and melancholy

Sifting through St. Paul's letter to the Philippians in an effort to discover what it means to "rejoice in the Lord always."

Recovering joy

What can we do when we discover our joy has been stolen from us?


Bubbling over

Joy tends to overflow to the point of sharing -- and yet sometimes it doesn't.

Lifting the paradigm

A daughter considers the legacy of her name in light of an encounter.


For whose glory?

On learning to see God's love in action, not ours.
