  • I was 11 years old when God died. The April 8, 1966 cover of Time magazine declared his death, or at least speculated by asking "Is God Dead?"

    I was too young to pay attention to the question. At 11, I only wanted to beat Paul Pechner in spelling. But it's a question that lots of people have been asking in one form or another throughout history. Maybe not, "Is he dead?" but "Is he relevant to my life?"

    We are, above all, supremely self-absorbed.

    Today, I looked up the 1966 Time cover story, "Toward a Hidden God," and read it. It could've been written in 2008.

  • Every church has one and mine is no exception - a matriarch or mother of the church.

    It's not a title or position someone campaigns for or is appointed to, but it's a role someone becomes by virtue of her love and faith and selfless faithfulness.

    In my church, that would be a tiny pipsqueak named Betty Santana. I always tell Betty that the reason I like her so much is because I tower over her. The truth is, even though she's only about 4-foot-9 or so, she towers over everyone at my church, me included.
