I cannot imagine having the power to do anything—literally anything—and then doing so little. Oh, but I’m not God. If I were God, I’ look at it all differently. Okay. Fine. But you know what? If God doesn’t have a conscience—if God doesn’t feel suffering the way we do—I think I’d prefer that he (or she) not exist.  Click through to read more! Read more

Over the holidays, I reread the very first N. K. Jemisin book I had ever read, Killing Moon. I mentioned to a sister-in-law that I had initially read the book five years ago, and was surprised how much of the book I didn’t remember on rereading it. She laughed and said that was probably because of the hundreds of novels I had read in the intervening years—so much reading was bound to blend together on some level. I assured her that her assessment was an exaggeration—but her comment made me start counting.  Click through to read more! Read more

Harris has put himself back on the podium he ostensibly vacated when leaving his pastorate to go to seminary. He’s preaching to those who read his book, offering them his new wisdom, sharing himself as a person, and, in the end, explaining in the guise of listening. And somehow, despite wanting answers, I’m no more clear on what he believes and what he does not believe now than I was before I watched his documentary.  Click through to read more! Read more

The next time I hear someone complaining about millennials not having children, I’ll make doubly sure my response is dual—we need both childcare subsidies and paid maternity leave, and family-friendly workplace cultures.
