Paul: A New Creation

Great Themes of Scripture: New Testament Paul: A New Creation Thursday, July 8, 2021 Paul, the great apostle to the gentiles, is a unique figure in the New Testament. About half of the books in the New Testament bear his name, either because he actually wrote them or because other early Christians attached his name… Continue Reading Paul: A New Creation

How Do We “Save” the World?

Choosing Love in a Time of Evil How Do We “Save” the World? Sunday, May 16, 2021 The Divine Mind transforms all human suffering by identifying completely with the human predicament and standing in full solidarity with it from beginning to end. This is the real meaning of the crucifixion. The cross is not just… Continue Reading How Do We “Save” the World?

Christ, Our Beloved Bridegroom

Mystical Marriage Christ, Our Beloved Bridegroom Monday, May 10, 2021 If we could glimpse the panoramic view of the biblical revelation and the Big Picture of which we are a part, we’d see how God is forever evolving human consciousness, making us ever more ready for God. The Hebrew prophets and many Catholic and Sufi… Continue Reading Christ, Our Beloved Bridegroom

Mystical Holism

All Will Be Well Mystical Holism Friday, April 9, 2021 I am convinced that the Gospel offers us a holistic understanding of salvation. If we understand the resurrection as a universal phenomenon, we can see this idea everywhere in Pauline passages, expressed in different ways. Here are some examples: “in that one body he condemned… Continue Reading Mystical Holism

Living in Heaven Now

Communion of Saints Living in Heaven Now Friday, March 12, 2021 Jesus spoke these things, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, “Father . . . I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in me through their word; that they may all be one; even… Continue Reading Living in Heaven Now

A Community of Holy People

Communion of Saints A Community of Holy People Sunday, March 7, 2021 In the fourteenth century, the inspired, anonymous author of The Cloud of Unknowing taught that God in Christ dealt with sin, death, forgiveness, and salvation “all in one lump.” It is a most unusual, even homely, phrase; for me, this corporate and even mystical reading… Continue Reading A Community of Holy People

For the Good of the World

Public Virtue For the Good of the World Friday, November 6, 2020 God is the ultimate nonviolent one, so we dare not accept any theory of salvation—much less socialization, economics, or politics—that is based on violence, exclusion, social pressure, or moral coercion. When we do, these are legitimated as a proper way of life. God… Continue Reading For the Good of the World

Corporate Evil and Corporate Good

What Do We Do with Evil? Corporate Evil and Corporate Good Friday, October 16, 2020 Both Jesus and Paul radically reframe the human situation and invite us to live a vulnerable human life in communal solidarity with both sin and salvation. Neither sin nor salvation could ever be exclusively mine, but both of them are… Continue Reading Corporate Evil and Corporate Good

The Nature of Evil

What Do We Do with Evil? The Nature of Evil Sunday, October 11, 2020 Over the years, it has become increasingly clear to me that we are confused about the nature of evil. We don’t seem to understand what evil is, how it operates, or what we can do, personally or collectively, to reduce its… Continue Reading The Nature of Evil

The “Backside” of God

The Universal Pattern The “Backside” of God Monday, April 13, 2020 I feel a deep solidarity with individuals throughout the world who are wrestling with health issues. In 2016, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and underwent a complete prostatectomy. The wisdom lessons that God offered me before, during, and after the surgery were pretty… Continue Reading The “Backside” of God
