coping creatively with climate complexity

Scarcity of resources often makes people despondent. People learn to adjust, adapt or just succumb. But, sometimes they transcend the adversity through a creative innovation.

Vinoba Bhave on Gandhi

Here is Vinoba Bhave sharing his thoughts on Gandhi:When, still a child, I was drawn by Bengal and the Himalayas. I cherished dreams of going to these places. In Bengal it was the upsurge symbolized by Vande Mataram that called me, in the Himalayas it was the Jnana-Yoga. When in 1916 I left home I wanted at the same time to go both to the Himalayas and to Bengal. The city of Kashi was on the way

Gandhi's Higher Standard of Leadership

It's Gandhi's birthday today. In perhaps a statement of our times, I was first reminded of him when I saw him on the homepage of Google. :) Then, I thought of my dear friend Jayesh Patel at the Gandhi Ashram, who is an exemplar of Gandhian values; and at some point, I happened upon an unread book sitting on my desk -- A Higher Standard of Leadership: Lessons from the Life of Gandhi, by

While there are things we can and must do to reduce the rate and number…See More

FROM THE DESK OF PASTOR WILL: Apostasy and Declining Christianity

I have been confronted recently by a number of my colleagues in ministry, many of them friends, most of them acquaintances and all of them pastors. They contend that "open and affirming churches" are a part of the "Great Apostasy" and falling away from the faith. They contend that pastors of LGBT ministries and churches are…See More

FROM THE DESK OF PASTOR WILL: The Eroticism of God

A great number of religions are uncomfortable with, and often terrified, by erotic art and the creative energy that goes into it. They seem wholly taken aback by the energy harnessed in erotic art and, there is no need to be. Erotic energy reflected in art can only be effectively channeled with the full cooperation of…See More

FROM THE DESK OF PASTOR WILL: Critics, Condoms & Christ

One of the challenges of street ministry is in being able to descend on those streets with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.
