Queer God Calling

  In many places, I’ve sought the Queer God. Sometimes I find divinity and sometimes divinity finds me. The nature of seeking is that God always finds us. Every journey is queer, unlike any other journey. The queerness of our lives is an emulation of the Queer God, in whose image we’re made. We are […]

#11 / Jonestown Theology: Lenten Explorations in the Valley of Death

God is never lost. In the midst of great evil, God is there. I have long wondered how Jonestown fits into such ideas. In the 1970s, Rev. Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple founded the settlement in the jungles of Guyana. After a few years of communal living, Jones led his followers to commit a […]

Fear is Our Only God

  I’ve long wondered what happened to our boldness. Our faith was once defined by courage. In their earthly existence, all the early disciples had to look forward to was a gruesome execution. In spite of the consequences, they still followed. If persecution hit our churches, I have no doubt that people would renounce their […]

International Women’s Day, Suicide and the Bankruptcy of Christian Theology

  On many occasions in a variety of settings, I’ve often wondered, “What does Christian Theology have to say to women?” Usually, I don’t have to think too long. Throughout the development of Christian Theology, women have been denigrated to a subservient role. Every figure of divinity is considered to be a man. Most heroes […]

God Is Always Late…You Should Be Too

Screen Shot 2017-03-05 at 2.02.34 PM

  Recently, someone asked, “Why are you always late?” After a moment of thought, I replied, “I don’t know of any place worth being on time to.” Time is such an important part of our existence. It’s not for God. In fact, I think there is something heretical about time. As evidenced in the movements […]

God Quit / God Sex

  I’ve always wondered what it would be like for God to quit. Would the universe explode? I don’t think so. Sometimes, I think it would be similar to a romantic spat. We would just stop talking to each for a little while. Have you ever experienced silence from God? It seems to me that […]
