  • Family and faith

    Every family begins with a marriage.
    Two weeks ago, my family got together in California to celebrate our parents’ marriage with a huge party for their 60th anniversary.
    It was a 50’s party, minus the poodle skirts and black leather jackets.
    My sister transformed her garage into a 50’s-style combination soda shoppe and hot rod garage, complete with a juke box in the corner playing classic oldies music.

  • A fight for shalom

    It was a rare day off in the middle of the work week.
    What to do? What to do?
    My husband had called dibs on the computer and I had already caught up on the antics of the Real Housewives of both New York and New Jersey.
    The only thing left to do was go out and get into a fight.
    Actually, fighting topped my list, trumping reading online pop culture blogs, trumping even shopping for clothes I don’t need.
    Beyond anything else I felt the need to fight — fight for peace, for the shalom of my soul.

  • He knows what we need

    My friend Tara recently asked me about a book that swept through the Christian culture like a Category 4 hurricane back in 2000, “The Prayer of Jabez,” by Bruce Wilkinson.
    Tara jokingly wondered aloud if maybe her pooh-poohing the book and not jumping on the “pray like Jabez” bandwagon was coming back to bite her in the butt. Maybe her life would be different if she had been a Jabez prayer pray-er.
    If you’re not familiar with the book, here’s a mini crash course:

  • Fundamentals of the faith

    It’s seems we’re all recovering from something.
    Recovering drug addicts, recovering alcoholics — I’m a recovering nice person.
    For about a year or so I’ve been reading a blog for recovering Christian fundamentalists, “Stuff Fundies Like,” at www.stufffundieslike.com.
