The Halftime Show

The Halftime Show

Aaron Hodgin and I laughed and laughed.  It was the funniest thing we had ever seen.  Super Bowl Sunday: 1989.  The Bud Bowl I was perhaps the best Super Bowl commercial I have ever seen.  The battle between Budweiser and Bud Light was an epic story that ended with the entrance of none other, The […]

Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda, Oughta

Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda, Oughta

Our life is defined by relationships and the commandments that drive our interactions with one another. I have been binge watching Downton Abbey this month and was struck by the interactions between the Lords and servants. Who does what, and who can do what, and who is what – tends to be the constant dialogue […]

A Promise in the Midst of the Rubble

A Promise in the Midst of the Rubble

One of the most interesting journalistic developments for those that like politics and current events is Politifact. This non-partisan news service started by the Tampa Bay, Florida paper, keeps tabs on those never ending campaign promises. It tracks each political candidate’s promises (pledges) and rates them with this scale: True Mostly True Half True Mostly […]

A Business Plan for Bankruptcy?

A Business Plan for Bankruptcy?

I love plans, but they do not always love me. Alec Reynolds and I noticed the Hornets. One had buzzed over his baby sisters head as we walked Margaret in her stroller. We knew we had to plan an attack on the beehive. So we did what any ten-year-olds would do, we gathered some rocks […]

Communion, Birthday Cakes, and Gospel

Communion, Birthday Cakes, and Gospel

We saw Garrison Keillor last night at the Pavilion. He opened the show with a story about the rationale for his summer tour. It turns out his family had invited him to go camping. They explained to Keillor that it is through nature that they felt the presence of God…Garrison explained that it is in […]

I Need a Miracle

I Need a Miracle

The Fourth of July reminds me of our collective obsession with right-handed power. We celebrate the freedom this country wrought from the British through battles and Declaration.   Right handed power is the accumulation of a good through force: either strategic or brute.   Right handed power has one central tenet:   It’s never finished […]

A Nest for You and Me

A Nest for You and Me

Jesus, in today’s Gospel readings, speaks of two parables that give us a taste of the Kingdom of God.  We all want to know about the Kingdom, and Mark yokes these two parables together to provide a clear glimpse of the Kingdom.  But to truly see this kingdom we must contrast it with another Kingdom, […]

It’s You I Love

It's You I Love

A few years ago, I was fishing with friends off Martha’s Vineyard and we were having a banner morning, so great, in fact, that we let the Fog roll in.  Yes, before we knew it, we were surrounded by thick, dense fog- five miles from home.  I remember those slow minutes as we crawled along […]

The Plunge

The Plunge

I do not like heights.  I like heights even less coupled with fast moving objects.  Think composite tube at 35000 ft….so you can imagine when Brooks told me that the main event at the Confirmation Retreat was the Plunge at Wintergreen.  For those of you that do not know the “plunge” it is a ride […]
