Not customers: doctors have patients, libraries have patrons, lawyers have clients and teachers have students

Professionalization isn't perfect: historically, professional societies "were structured around hierarchies of gender and race and laypeople were expected to obey expert judgment without even asking questions." But professionals were also organized around ethics of service and morals, with professional standards that required practitioners to use their expertise to further the public good. Decades of neoliberal marketization has flattened out these service-based ethics, turning every kind ...

Old year, new year

The new year has begun. I admit to wondering what this new year is going to bring. Last year was bad enough, could this year be worse? Could it be better? Could it be just a repeat of the old year? We expect New Year’s to give us a new start. We hope that it will be a good start, but many times it isn’t. Loved ones who have celebrated Christmas with us suddenly die soon after New Year’s is over. Crises that we have experienced in life don’t stop at 11:59 PM on December 31 and at 12:00 AM everyth...

Chris Jericho Says All Elite Wrestling Is Negotiating A 'Strong' TV Deal With At Least 3 Suitors

Fresh off his big announcement that he has signed with All Elite Wrestling, Chris Jericho appeared on Busted Open Radio to talk all things AEW. Most notably, Jericho was bullish on a future TV deal for the promotion, which is all but guaranteed to be announced within the coming months. Jericho noted AEW is negotiating with multiple suitors, and the deal will be huge news for the upstart wrestling company. "As far as TV goes, I mean it's one of those things, I wouldn't have gone to All ...

3 Reasons to Study the Biblical Geography of Israel

Israel’s geography is more than side trivia for the events in the Bible—it’s the stage God chose to place the characters of his story. The narrative unfolds across many different landscapes, from the Mediterranean coastal region to the lower Galilee to the southern desert and beyond. It’s an epic story of God’s kingdom expanding from a garden to the whole known world. The Bible’s original audience would’ve known these places and regions and why they were important to the story. But today’s Bible...

Next unto

Nehemiah 3:2 And next unto him builded the men of Jericho. And next to them builded Zaccur the son of Imri. I love this truth that is found all through Nehemiah 3. They were working next to each other. Shoulder to shoulder they built the wall. This phrase is found 13 times in 9 verses in this chapter. Each person was doing a different job. Many were in different parts of the wall. All were doing the work. Each task was valuable. Where are you on the assembly line? Are you involved in the mini...

A La Carte (January 7)

Today’s Kindle deals include some good books from Crossway that are worth considering for your collection. (Yesterday on the blog: What’s Encouraging You at Your Church?) Walking Saints Home “The renewed call to gospel-centered discipleship in the last two decades has been extremely helpful in clarifying the purpose of ministry. It has helped center the church on Jesus and the commission he gave us to advance his kingdom. It has helped us return to our basic ministry to make ...

Epiphany – A Day and a Season

Today we celebrate the feast of the Epiphany, the appearance of the wise men to the Holy Family, bringing them gifts from far away. It is a familiar story, and one often added to church Christmas pageants, although some churches will stretch it out and present that portion of the nativity play on the Sunday closest to January 6. The creche is usually in its place although other trappings of Christmas ornamentation may be gone. The figures of the kings have frequently been placed some distanc...

Twelfth Night

It’s hard to believe it’s 2019 already. Christmas came and went too fast, even though we are still in the Christmas season, at least for today. Most of the Christmas lights and decorations have been taken down around the neighborhood, but my tree stays up — at least until tomorrow. I was interested in learning that January fifth or sixth could be considered Twelfth Night, the twelfth day of Christmas, depending on when you start the countdown. If Christmas Day is the first day of Christmas, t...

Continuing Christmas

Merry Christmas! Since it is now after December 25, we are officially in the Christmas season. You might not know it from the stores since they’re already displaying Valentine’s day paraphernalia and even a bit of Saint Patrick, but we as Anglicans, Episcopalians, Roman Catholics, and others, are in the season of Christmas that lasts until 6 January, the feast of the Epiphany. Gone are the Christmas carols from the radio although, thank God, there are still CDs and YouTubes that we can list...

Thin Places and Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas … oh, wait, it’s a little early for that, isn’t it? After all, we still have Advent 4 to prepare for the main event next week which is Christmas. I’m a huge fan of Christmas. I love the season, but I just don’t show it in the exuberant, deck-the-halls, ho-ho-ho kind of way as I used to. I still love the lights and the carols and most the trappings of Christmas, but, now that I’m a lot older,  it seems that my exuberance has given way to patient waiting, and p...

Who Are the Archangels in the Bible?

This is a post by guest author Lindsay Kennedy. Given that only two angels are explicitly named in Scripture (Michael and Gabriel), it is unsurprising that they have garnered a lot of attention, speculation, and reverence throughout the centuries—in both religious tradition and popular media. Some even believe Michael was the pre-incarnate Jesus. With the help of Michael Heiser’s Angels, we will consider what the Bible says about Michael, archangels, and some other important angels. Michael and...

Labyrinths – an Advent Exercise

One of the things I like best about Advent is that I’m more aware of things, and more alert to words and actions and thoughts than probably any other time of year. This week, I think it was on Facebook, I saw the word labyrinth. I don’t remember in what context nor do I remember where precisely I saw it, but I do remember seeing the word and having it buzz through my brain for most of the day. A labyrinth is used frequently as a meditative tool, a chance to walk a directed path and allow the ...

Excerpt from the Award-Winning Lexham Geographic Commentary

Each year, Christianity Today honors outstanding books most likely to shape evangelical life, thought, and culture. The Lexham Geographic Commentary on the Gospels, edited by Barry Beitzel, recently received this prestigious award for the category of Biblical Studies. The commentary delivers fresh insight by paying attention to an often overlooked component of the Gospel stories—their geographical setting. Most houses (be they of a commoner or a king) had a guest–room or lodging place (katalym...

Using Darkness

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. – Isaiah 9:2 (KJV)   Last week in our Education for Ministry (EfM) group’s theological reflection, we started with the word darkness. The word seemed relevant since the days are shorter and the nights longer. Many people suffer from such a reversal of light to dark. They become depressed, and sometimes they can be rather unpleasant to be around...

Prostitutes, Mistresses, and the Messiah: Seven Great Women of Ill Repute

A strange thread runs through the most prominent women associated with Jesus: they are all women of, shall we say, ill repute. Most of their notorious reputations spring from sexual scandals. What does this say about Christ? An awful lot. If your habit is to skip over the genealogies in the first chapter of Matthew’s Gospel, you may have missed a treasure buried in this list of forty fathers who comprise Jesus’s ancestry (if we count Joseph), stretching as far back as Abraham. The hidden t...

Palestinian court extends detention of Palestinian-American

JERICHO, West Bank (AP) — A Palestinian court has extended the detention of a hunger-striking Palestinian-American activist who claims she was tortured in captivity. The Jericho court on Thursday ordered that Suha Jbara, a U.S. citizen born in Panama, remain in custody 15 more days on suspicions she funded “illegal organizations.” Jbara started a hunger […]

To The Holy Land: Jericho | Part 2 of 4

by Zainab Chaudry Our group’s first stop after crossing the border into Palestine is the historic city of Jericho. Located in the occupied West Bank near the Jordan River, this is said to be the oldest inhabited city in the world. An oasis amidst the desert because of its natural springs, it is situated 800 feet below sea level. The Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth, is visible off in the distance. The air quality is noticeably different. You can almost taste the salt and minerals on your lips...

A Lesson in Contentment

The other evening I had one of those small epiphanies that come into my life now and then. It’s not always in the form of a lightning bolt or an angel knocking me off my donkey in the middle-of-the-road, but it does come, and it does make me think. It’s rather a nice thing to have. The insight that I had as I sat in my rocker with the lap robe over my legs and feet, a cat curled up on my lap, a good book in my hands, a lit Christmas tree, and my fake fireplace giving off not quite realistic f...

It’s Coming!

Thanksgiving is over, the leftovers have either been consumed, frozen for later, or transformed into some other edible form. Most of the company has gone home, and if anyone’s lucky, there is still at least one piece of pie left in the refrigerator for whoever snags it first. For one day, we seem to thrive on gluttony, with big meals, and lots of friends and family around to trade traditional stories and laugh together, even if some of the laughs are just a bit frayed on the edges. Still, we’ve...

The Wool Jacket

Luke 12:32-34   It’s beginning to get chilly here in this part of Arizona, close to Phoenix. Of course, people will laugh when I say it’s chilly at anything between 60 and 80°F, especially when snow was falling in some places around the country. Okay, people can laugh, but I don’t laugh when the temperature is 115 or so in the summer and others are at about 80, so I guess it all equals out. Today felt a little nippy for me, so I was looking in the closet for a light sweater or jacket, and I h...

Sabbath Killing and Healing

Jesus was going to the house of a very high-status Pharisee to have a Sabbath meal. The Sabbath was a required tradition, with lots of things that you could and could not do on the Sabbath. There was no work allowed, human or animal, although the animal must be fed before you yourself ate.  If a person wanted to go to the synagogue on the Sabbath, either after sundown on Sabbath eve or on the Sabbath itself on Saturday, they must walk. Meals were prepared before sundown, and to have someone inv...

Small Epiphanies

Dear Abba,   It’s Halloween, the eve of All Saints’ Day and with All Souls’ Day the day after. It’s always a tricky time of year for me, with the leaves dying on the trees, the shortening days, and the anniversary of Mama’s death.  My mind was already full of thoughts about separations and goodbyes, and this just focused those thoughts. I have learned about saints in the liturgical calendar, have known a lot of souls and some I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend for sainthood, and some just ordin...

Steal This Look: Parisian Oyster Party

Parisian ceramicist Cécile Daladier throws four parties every year: one per season, and each with its own theme. A while back, Daladier, her partner Nicolas Soulier, and their friend Lucile Demory found themselves shucking 350 oysters and pouring white wine for their “White and Mother-of-Pearl” dinner party. Daladier felt the theme was nicely aligned with her ceramics, so she designed pieces just for the event (the parties are an understated way for her to showcase new work and connect with old ...

Your Inner-Bartimaeus

Mark 10 We will have to be very brave… Last week we talked about how all our ideas about God are mere idols. If that is true then how can we ever know the true God? It’s a problem. We find ourselves the subjects of Isaiah’s prophecy that we have ears that don’t hear and eyes that don’t see. Jesus quoted this very passage in Mark 4. We should pay careful attention, then, to these two stories of men who had eyes and literally did not see. The story of the man born blind and today’s story...

As he and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!’ Many sternly ordered him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!’ Jesus stood still and said, ‘Call him her...
