Wine Before Breakfast
From Maximillian Kolbe to Oscar Romero
It is a short path from Maximillian Kolbe to Oscar Romero.
Jeremiah’s Call and Desperate Times
Without prophetic critique, hope before breakfast will be little more than cheap optimism at best, and a pious cover-up at worst.
From Transfixed to Hope: Hope Before Breakfast
We may be sleepy, but we will not be numb. Hope and history may not rhyme, but we gather nonetheless with a radical and stubborn hope, even before breakfast!
Advent on the way to the Cross
The times are too desperate for “Away in the Manger.” The situation is too dangerous for “Silent Night.”
The Word Does Not Return Empty
Before the book, even before language, there was the Word.
At the Crux of the Matter: A liturgy of saying goodbye
A liturgy of thanksgiving for Crux Books
Tale of Two Feasts
Much depends on who eats and who doesn’t, on who is invited to dinner, on who is the host, and on where you eat.
Imagining Healed Daughters
It's tough to be a woman. But, the reason why I find the Jesus-story we share in this room so compelling is how radically different he was in the world. Every small step towards healing requires someone releasing power. Jesus is willing to give up power in this exchange.
Remembering, Forgetting and the “F” Bomb

Beyond Smugness: The Beatitudes Again
If we can be smug about this radical teaching of Jesus, then we demonstrate in our very smugness that we don’t get it.
Resurrection, Jesus and Leonard
Settling in either knowing or unknowing, resolving the tension of faith and doubt would have been cheap and superficial, regardless of where one landed.
Easter! Too Good to be True?
What if the story that scripture tells isn’t a fairy tale… what if instead, all fairy tales are resonating with and hinting at this singular real story that shapes our history? What if we’re created to long for these stories, to recognize them as familiar?
Hold Fast to the Head
Hold fast to the head, and let your ethics flow from that. Stay immersed in the covenant story and your actions will be shaped by it. Don’t need no baggage, don’t need no ticket, just get on board.
Kingdom Fruitfulness: A New Targum
This is the word of truth, in a time of such ubiquitous deceit. This is the word of truth, that speaks power and life in the face of repression and death.
God on the Loose
Memory can trap us. Many of us have memories linked to shame, inadequacy, and pain, like Israel’s memory of their broken covenants and spiritual infidelity, and these can paralyze us in bitterness, self-pity, and self-doubt.
