Disheveled Theologian: Clickbait
“You’ll be amazed by what you see!” “The truth will stun you.” “These people were aghast when they heard this!” “What do these Floridians eat every day for breakfast? You won’t believe the answer!” Good grief! Stop the presses and cull out the clickbait. I can’t...

Disheveled Theologian: The great mustard gas incident
I think I accidentally almost poisoned my family with mustard gas. I was making brine for a pork shoulder that would eventually become a meal of red beans and rice. The recipe called for apple cider vinegar, mustard seeds and a few other less potent ingredients. I mixed everything...

Disheveled Theologian: Finding good in unexpected places

Disheveled Theologian: Theological Stocking Stuffers, Week 7 -- Stop and think about it
“Take one day at a time,” they say. “Make lists. Check them twice. Don’t be overwhelmed by the big picture.” Easier said than done. Problem is, I like the big picture. I want to see it. But it’s obscured by all the little pixels of the daily obligations.
