    ArticleTE'A Goes to the Midwest

    Twelve people get on a plane heading west ... and they land in Cleveland! (Where, despite the name of the popular TV show, it was not hot – 50 to 60 degrees at most).The 12 people are the TE’A Company:  nine actors, one playwright/director, one stage manager, and me, the artistic director. We were there for the last leg... more...

    ArticleHow Marriage Equality Is The Answer To Our Prayers

    You know the old joke about praying for God’s help? The one where the man in a storm waits atop his roof while flood waters rise, having prayed for God’s help for deliverance? Meanwhile, his neighbor drives off, a boat passes by and even a rescue helicopter hovers overhead. All of which the man refuses because he is... more...

    ArticleWhen, America, Will It End?

    The massacre inside Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Caroline, cuts deeply into the souls of every decent person across this nation. The faithless, unprovoked act of a 21 year old white man during a prayer service is unconscionable. Yet, it is not rare or historically unusual. The killing of nine human... more...

    ArticleWhat is Uniform Justice Really About, Anyway? ...

    Have you seen the current poster for Uniform Justice? Or Visited the Uniform Justice Spring Tour page on the Intersections website? Or seen or heard any other press material?

    ArticleWhen God Met Me On The Bridge

    Often times we think that we have to walk into the sanctuary, sit two rows back from the altar and just wait for our “aha” moment to realize what our purpose is, but that isn’t always the case. On March 5, 2015, I loaded two overly packed suitcases into one of three vans and headed thirteen hours down the road to Selma,... more...

    How do we respond to ISIS?

    As I travel home from three days in Kazakhstan at the V Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions, I am struck by the number of times I encountered two questions. These questions were perhaps most pointedly asked by Foreign Minister Erlan Idrissov in a private briefing with members of the small American delegation in Astana:... more...

    A Jump Start for Sustained Peacebuilding

    For most Americans, Kazakhstan seems like a faraway place, indeed. But Americans can be quite myopic, blind to much of what goes on in the world beyond its borders. Actually, from a world perspective, Kazakhstan is right in the center of things. Located on the old silk route, straddling Asia and Europe, Kazakhstan is home to well over... more...

    Demilitarizing Law Enforcement

    Over Memorial Day weekend, I spent considerable time following events in Cleveland, the place I used to call home, in light of Officer Michael Brelo’s acquittal in the deaths of two unarmed African Americans, Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, who were shot to death back in November of 2012. These events, coupled with the fact... more...

Our audience was composed of Lonergan professors and... more...
