  • Daylight after the fog lifts

    Recently, a local church pastor stopped by the newsroom to talk about depression — his.
    He had just come through a second bout of it and thought it was important to tell people that Christians and Christian pastors are not immune to it.
    It’s not a character thing; it’s a chemical, brain thing, he said.
    He called his depression a “dark night of the soul.” It made him tired and unable to eat, doubtful of God’s love for him, although not God’s existence.

  • Curse of the perfect turkey

    The year was 2002, a year that lives in infamy, or at least extreme annoyance, in my daughter, Alison’s, life.
    That was the year of the cursed perfect turkey.
    Prior to that, Alison’s Thanksgiving turkeys ranged from dry to just OK. But in 2002 she took a madcap leap of faith, risked everything and brined the bird — and it came out brown and crisp on the outside, moist and succulent on the inside. Perfection with drumsticks and wings.

  • 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.
