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.
Won't You Be My Neighbor: 2018 OCCJ Trialogue Series: 2018 Trialogue Series: Won't You Be My Neighbor? The 2018 Trialogue Series continues through Feb. 18. Trialogue is free to attend and open to the public. Registration is not required.
The Need for Wisdom: In his weekly blog post, President Gary Peluso-Verdend asks the question, "Where and from whom should churches and their leaders seek pastoral wisdom?"
Puzzle Pieces: When you imagine the future of church, to which trend lines, data sets, fears, and hopes do you attend? There is so much going on with Christianity in the U.S. We have to make choices concerning where to look and how to frame what we see.
Poopy Nations and Character: One of the (potentially) great things about many religious traditions is the understanding that each human being is created in the image of God and should be accorded respect and dignity, no matter how badly one seeks to efface God’s image (the Imago Dei) in oneself through one’s actions. To discriminate and judge another as “lesser than” based on demographics is un-Christian, and against the teachings of many religions.
Toward a More Truthful Story: President Gary Peluso-Verdend challenges America to tell a more truthful story of its history and future.
