Here are the ten best posts on this site, in my opinion:
Drones: Am I Responsible?
... because it puts together theology, ethics, politics, poetry, and imagery.
The Children Are Waiting
... because it puts together my personal life and the issue I am most passionate about.
IMPACT FILM: Understanding What Guantanamo Means From "The Response"
... because it's one of the first posts I ever wrote, and it's a testimony about how I got inspired to activism.
What Would Jesus Do? OCCUPY!
... because you can see the wheels turning as I try to work out what that thing back then might have to do with this thing happening right now!
Heaven in Chicago: North Pond
... because writing it helped me open myself up to my special way of enjoying Nature.
A Checklist for Critically Reading (and Writing) About North Korea
... because it provides an analytic basis for dealing with current events . . . and ties to the field of Asian Studies, to which I have devoted a big part of my life.
In Whose Machine Will YOU Be a Cog?
... because it provides sound advice -- "put first things first" -- and it builds on kinaesthetic experience.
How Might the White Church "Die to 'Whiteness'"?
... because it captures a moment in my attempts to understand -- at a deep level -- how to do the work of anti-racism.
"You're NOT alone!" (Ziggy the Subversive)
... because it's about one the things I'm most interested in -- the deep emotional drivers of political orientation and behavior.
A New Lease on Life -- For Me, and For the World
... because it's about being "recalled to life" after a summer of chemotherapy.
