Andrew Sullivan responds to my critique of his Newsweek cover story:

That is why the crucifixion remains the great central symbol of the Christian faith. It is a total renunciation of worldly power. Jesus did not want such an outcome, but he accepted it and loved those who murdered him.

A Guide for Staying Christian in Seminary:

Here’s the rundown on the seven-part series, four quick videos on the subject, and several good posts produced by friends who we asked to chime in on this topic.

The Emerging Asexuality Movement:

What all asexual people have in common — and what defines asexuality as an orientation — is that, while they may have a desire to connect with other people, asexuals have no desire to connect with them sexually.

  2. Dave says:

    What sort of impact does the asexuality movement have in the Church’s ministry?
