  • Relationships Are Tricky

    by Richard Burden
    Finding the right blend of independence and togetherness is hard; it’s an ongoing balancing act—a kind of marriage—between independence and community. And as Christians we have a model for the kind of relationship that both guards our independence and ensures community; it’s the model of Christian marriage. Rainer Maria Rilke speaks to this understanding. In one of his letters when he writes: “Marriage is in many ways a simplification of life, and it naturally combines the strengths and wills of two people so that, together, they seem to reach farther into the future than they did before…The point of marriage is not to create a quick commonality by tearing down all boundaries; on the contrary, a good marriage is one in which each partner appoints the other to be the guardian of their solitude
  • Those Troublesome Christians

    by Dan Clendenin
    Extending mercy to all without exception, especially to those who need it most, can threaten, frighten, and anger people. Christian mercy that honors and embraces everyone is the antithesis of the Roman hierarchy of wealthy men that marginalized slaves, women, and the poor. The way of mercy is the opposite of a system of meritocracy — earning your way by privilege, money, status, ethnicity, family, education, and on and on.

    from Sacra Conversazione
    In Jesus, Humanity and the Trinity, Kathryn Tanner states anew the still bold scriptural understanding of the true nature of God’s inclusiveness. She writes: “In Christ, God is clearly the God of sinners as well as the righteous, of the Gentiles who lack God’s gift of the covenant as well as the Jews who have the benefit of the law, for the suffering as well as the fortunate, indeed the God especially of the former in that they are the ones on the greatest need of Gods gifts.
