Imagining a Different Public Voice in Oklahoma: President Gary Peluso-Verdend looks ahead to the creation of a center for religion in public life in Oklahoma in his weekly blog.
The Influence of Religion in Support for Public Education: President Gary Peluso-Verdend worries that the percentage of Oklahomans who disdain state-run public education, of a sort required for a complex, diverse, just and compassionate society, is actually quite large.
Clergy Should Boycott the Oklahoma House Chaplaincy Program: From President Gary Peluso-Verdend: I call on all clergy in Oklahoma to withdraw their participation in and support for the chaplaincy program in the Oklahoma House. Boycott it, at least until the discrimination and un-American gaming of religion by the state is stopped and the program fixed. But maybe it is better to let the program die.
Seminary Board Approves Leadership Transition: The board of trustees of Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, Okla. approved a change of leadership at the seminary during its February meetings. Gary Peluso-Verdend is stepping down from the office of president July 1 for a sabbatical year before returning to Phillips in 2019 in a new role.
Boys to Men: In the wake of school shootings, with the shootings at a congressional softball game and a small-town church in view, and with the hundreds of deaths and woundings each week in the U.S. from firearms—the great majority of incidents with a man’s finger on the trigger—we in religious communities should be reflecting on how we help men do the work of becoming men. (from President Gary Peluso-Verdend's weekly blog)
The Hole in America’s Soul: "We Americans are a violent people," writes President Gary Peluso-Verdend in his weekly blog. "And, besides creating systems of violence that benefit some people and disadvantage or denigrate others, America’s weapon of choice in our worship of violence is the gun."
Humble Interpretation: The lesson President Gary Peluso-Verdend draws from the technology-revealed world of the Maya when applied to biblical scholarship is this: we interpreters should interpret with humility. There is so much about any particular biblical book that we simply don’t know.
Your Brain is Shaped by Which Church?: I’m wondering how technologies might, in the near future, alter the worship experience in the largest, most resource-rich mega-congregations (defined by researchers as more than 2,000 people in worship), nearly all of which are theologically conservative, writes President Gary Peluso-Verdend in his weekly blog post.
