The Need for More Progressive Christian Military Chaplains

By Christopher L. Schilling   What is American patriotism and how do we define it? I think this is a question that a lot of Americans are asking themselves not just following the recent controversies of NFL players kneeling during football games.

As the Flood Waters Recede

I’m a fourth generation Texan. I love the beauty and vastness of my home state. I love the way Texans are instinctively polite and friendly. I love our Tex-Mex and our BBQ. So while most of us in Austin experienced Harvey as heavy rains and a few lost tree limbs, the magnitude of the storm’s devastation has felt very close to home. In the decade my family and I lived in Houston after college, we were spared living through anything… Read more

For Hurricane Survivors: An Invitation to Lament

Since Harvey made landfall, I’ve been amazed by the courage of fellow Texans responding to the devastation. I’ve seen kindness and resourcefulness in the midst of a thousand details clamoring for attention—essential things like meals, potable water, toothbrushes, and clean clothes.

As an American and a Christian I have been utterly disappointed and disgusted by our president’s response to last weekend’s event in Charlottesville. As everyone who has followed the presidential pendulum knows, on Saturday, August 12, President Trump blamed “many sides” for the violence that ensued and climaxed in white supremacist James Fields ramming his car into a crowd of… Read more
