Church in the New World

We know times are changing, but the question is, how can the church react and respond to those changes?

The politics of truth and love

Though it may seem oxymoronic to talk about politicians with integrity, we can work for change inspired by one man's example.


No happy ending for the real working poor

Barbara Ehrenreich's book, Nickle and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America, chronicles the author's attempt to survive in the U.S. while working low-wage jobs.

daily asterisk

Even in a country you know by heart
its hard to go the same way twice
the life of the going changes.
The chances change and make a new way.
Any tree or stone or bird
can be the bud of a new direction. The
natural correction is to make intent
of accident. To get back before dark
is the art of going.

Wendell Berry
