#MeToo

I recently came across one of those “If you____, then post this as your status” things. I don’t know what you call those. They’re not “memes,” and they’re not “chain mail,” though they kind of have the feel of both.  This one, though, was posted by someone I know who doesn’t normally engage in those […]

May We Raise Children with a Fire for Justice, Peace, and Love

Years ago, when my husband and I were dating and in college, and through our early years of marriage, we read and were heavily influenced by the works of authors such as Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Kozol.
