A Full Cup

by

If I were the king of the world
I’ll tell you what I’d do,
I’d throw away the cars and the bars and the war,
and make sweet love to you.

That is what I think Jesus was declaring on Palm Sunday.

Two Visions for Peace

by

Jesus was executed by empire and that is the fate for anyone who speaks out against empire’s abuses. But that is why we are here. The church is no social club for the suburban well-to-do. This is the place to face truth and to do something about it. We do so in the tranquility, in the trusting peace that empire’s worst is not the last word.
