  • Bumper sticker theology

    On most days as I’m on my way to work I see a car with a bunch of bumper stickers on the back.

    There’s a “26.2” and a “13.1” sticker that means the driver is probably a marathon/half-marathon runner. Other stickers say things like “Easy does it,” “One day at a time” and “Let go and let God.”

    I’ve seen those slogans before and they’re often associated with 12-step programs like AA, although they don’t belong to them exclusively.

  • Hushing Jesus up

    Years ago I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.

    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints, and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.

    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.

    I was there to interview the woman for a newspaper story and tried to have a conversation with her but couldn’t concentrate because Jesus wouldn’t stop talking.

  • Love God, love people

    When Pharisees asked Jesus, “What is the greatest commandment?” Jesus answers, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the greatest and most important commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:36-39.

  • God and “a certain place”

    Faith in God is not a place, but it is always lived at an address.

  • Sand or stone, what is your choice?

    A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand: “Today my best friend slapped me in the face.”
