The Rev. Julie Graham preaches on pre-teen Jesus in the temple: "What if we encountered one another, including our teens, with the same kind of passion Mary and Joseph brought to their search for Jesus?

The communion of the saints, all the saints is here to. So take off your g…
 
Part of why we need to be careful about Halloween is because there are so many stories around us that associate evil with women's bodies, with other cultures, with those who are different. Specific evils: Racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, age-ism, these evils haunt us. Real concrete harm is done when we allow these forces to run amok. Some moder…

It's because of the over-individualization of faith that we struggle with this Gospel about plucking out eyes and severing limbs. Jesus is talking rhetorically, asking people to tend to their relationships. How can we broaden our sense, in the church, of who counts? In order to make the kind of change our world so desperately needs, we're going to …
