  • Where Jesus is Kermit the Frog

    A few weeks ago I met with a friend who’s a play therapist.
    She works with troubled, abused and damaged children, letting them play while she observes and does some other stuff — therapist stuff — that helps them express and process their thoughts and feelings.
    There’s a lot more to it, but that’s my reduced-to-bare-bones version of what she does.

  • Porcupines in the storm

    Years ago, a pastor friend of mine did a series of seminary talks titled “Porcupines in the Storm.”
    He spoke about how we, meaning we Christians, are like porcupines — prickly and sometimes dangerous, especially to each other.
    Porcupines actually have soft hair, but on their backs, sides and tails the soft hair is mixed with sharp quills; Africa’s crested porcupines have quills nearly a foot long.
    As porcupines go about their day, their quills lie flat — until the animal feels threatened. Then the quills leap to attention.

  • When Jesus shows up unexpectedly

    When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs.
    As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a communion server. I’m also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such.
    With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests.
    Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away.
    Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God can’t fix it.

  • Who are the church people

    Recently, someone passed on a bit of gossip to me.
    This person said, according to reliable sources, a certain person at a certain local church did something that, while doesn’t technically violate the letter of any of the Ten Commandments, is unseemly for, as this person put it, “church people.”
    That same week my pastor said someone came to him and informed him that a certain person who was attending the pastor’s class with the intent of joining the church was, indeed, not a very nice person, maybe even a despicable one.

  • You can't have that - it's mine

    In our editorial conference room at the newspaper I write for, during reporter staff meetings I sit in the end seat nearest the door.
    It doesn’t have my name on it, but that’s my seat.
    It’s not necessarily the best seat at the table; it’s just mine. It’s where I sit.
    A few weeks ago, I walked into a reporter’s meeting and Mike, another reporter ,was in my seat.
