Guest Opinion: Losing the 7th Avenue greenway

This post from Kiel Johnson comes in response to news announced today that the Portland Bureau of Transportation has decided to route the Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway on 9th Avenue. “9th Avenue will become the greenway.” The words put finality on years of advocacy, countless hours spent knocking on doors, talking with neighbors, making yard signs, and writing letters. This past Sunday my living room was overflowing with my fellow neighbors and their children who live on 7th. They h...

Is The AR-15 A ‘Weapon Of War?”

Joe Scarorough: As a longtime gun owner and supporter of the Second Amendment, I agreed with the Supreme Court’s “Heller” holding that concluded Americans had the right to keep and bear arms. But that constitutional protection did not, and will not, extend to guns designed as weapons of war. One should expect such things from a mindless dolt like Scarborough, but we should be able to expect better from people who should know better.  Apparently, it has become all the rage to throw around a few g...

WIRTW #546 (the “Arrivederci” edition)

Today is good bye … but only for two weeks. My kids' school gives them that much time off for Spring Break each year. So we are headed to Italy. Rome and Florence to be precise. I'll be back on April 1 (no foolin') with some thoughts about what I learned on my Spring Break. In the meantime, if you have any last minute tips on what to do, see, or eat in either of these cities, drop a note in the comments below.

Time for Change: Retiring this Blog to Focus on a Crucial New Initiative

How does one say this, after all these years, all these friendships, all these interactions? It’s been quite a ride, for one thing. And it’s coming full circle. When I started this blog on another platform almost 15 years ago, I thought it was going to be about Christian strategy. It quickly morphed into an apologetics and ethics blog, however. Now I’m returning to that original strategic intention now. I’m doing as part of a group, on a different platform, for a new purpose fitted to a new day ...

How to Cultivate Comfort and Peace

Christie Purifoy has called the city, the suburbs, and the countryside home, but it was an old red brick farmhouse in Pennsylvania that finally convinced her the trees really do sing songs of joy, and we are—always and in every place—invited to join in. Her lyrical new book Placemaker is a call to tend the soul, the land, and the places we share with one another. As Christie discovered, if you tend the land with others in mind, you might just find grace growing in a garden. It’s a grace to we...

Broken Pieces and the God Who Mends Them

W e all suffer in this messy, sin-stained world. Sometimes our suffering is the direct result of our own sin and sinfulness. Sometimes it’s because others sin against us. And then sometimes we suffer through the suffering of those we love. And while it can be difficult or even gruelling to walk alongside a loved one’s illness or disease, there is something particularly trying about enduring another person’s mental illness. In Broken Pieces and the God Who Mends Them: Schizophr...
