My one idea

We have a triune God of holy love who is most definitely way more verb than noun; He is an unfathomable God of mystery who loves each of us more than we can ever think about ourselves; all he requires of us is to allow Him to transform each of us into the person He created us to be. Problem is, we are incurable control freaks who have trouble accepting that God is God and we are not. Which means that what the church does best is drifting from what she can do best: introducing individuals to a triune God of holy love who is most definitely way more verb than noon...

Notable Quotes


Brian McLaren"All of us, especially people of faith, need to proclaim that white supremacy and white privilege and all other forms of racism and injustice must indeed be replaced with something better – the beloved community where all are welcome, all are safe, and all are free. White supremacist and Nazi dreams of apartheid must be replaced with a better dream – people of all tribes, races, creeds, and nations learning to live in peace, mutual respect, and neighborliness. Such a better world is possible, but only if we set our hearts on realizing the possibility."

– Brian McLaren, writing in "What I Saw in Charlottesville" on the Auburn Seminary website.


"The idea of racial (or most any other) supremacy is antithetical to that Gospel. We should remember that Jesus himself grasped for no superiority, no rank, but instead made himself a servant, giving himself in love. What we saw in Charlottesville was therefore a kind of anti-gospel, something that must be resisted, yes–but more, something that must be overcome."

– Dr. Craig Hill, dean of United Methodist-related Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, on Facebook.


"I heard growing up that the best way to expose a dirty glass is put a clean glass next to it. Faith leaders must stand up and show a dignified, nonviolent way. ... We’ve got to come off our pulpits and out of our cathedrals and save the soul of this nation."

– The Rev. Al Sharpton on his coming "Thousand Ministers March" for justice, interviewed by Adelle Banks of Religion News Service.
