• Walking on water and sinking like a stone

    Faith isn't something you ever simply achieve. It's not something that you ever nail down as a fait accompli.

  • The Law of Karma

    In 1991 Hollywood produced a comedy entitled “City Slickers,” starring Billy Crystal. In a quirky way it was a wonderfully moral film, focusing on three, middle-aged men from New York City who were dealing with midlife crisis.

  • Searching for the right fuel

    Sometimes everything can seem right on the surface while, deep down, nothing is right at all.

  • Suicide: Reclaiming the memory of our loved one

    Each year I write a column on suicide. Mostly I say the same thing over and over again, simply because it needs to be said. I don’t claim any originality or special insight, I only write about suicide because there is such a desperate need for anyone to address the question.

  • Robert Moore on human energy

  • On not being stingy with God's mercy

    Today, for a number of reasons, we struggle to be generous and prodigal with God's mercy.

  • The regrets we can live with

    In her recent book, “The Invention of Wings,” Sue Monk Kidd presents us with a deeply conflicted heroine, Sarah, a highly-sensitive woman who grows up the daughter of a slave-owner and a child of privilege. But Sarah's moral sensitivity soon trumps her sense of privilege and she makes a series of hard choices to distance herself from both slavery and privilege.

  • Wearied in our patience

    Thirty years ago, before the airline hijackings of September 11, 2001, before the shoe-bomber and others like him, it was simpler to travel by air.

  • Our gaze upon the city

    Jesus, it seems, had mixed feelings towards the world. He loved the world, laid down his life for it, and challenged us to love the world, even as he criticized it harshly and stated clearly that it was opposed to him.
