    • Gonna Stick My Sword in the Golden Sand September 15, 2014
      Gonna Stick My Sword in the Golden Sand: A Vietnam Soldier's Story has just been released. The title comes from a stanza of the gospel traditional, Down by the Riverside, with its refrain--"Ain't gonna study war no more." Golden Sand is a bold, dark, and intense retelling of the Vietnam experience through the eyes of an army scout that is […]

    • Not Whether We Dance, But How March 24, 2017
      The Wild Reed's series on dance continues with a second excerpt from dancer, philosopher, and scholar of religion Kimerer LaMothe's fascinating book, Why We Dance: A Philosophy of Bodily Becoming. (To read the first excerpt, click here.)Oh, and it's probably helpful to know that for LaMothe, dancing is any bodily movement in which humans […]

    • Winter . . . Within and Beyond March 18, 2017
      Ever since moving to the U.S. from Australia in 1994 I've had a love/hate relationship with winter in Minnesota. I loathe, for instance, the cold and the ice (the snow, it's true, I'm not quite as adverse to). Yet, on the other hand, I appreciate the pronounced seasons of my second home here in the North Star State, something that's quite […]

    • A Reader Writes: Trump's Election Is "White America's Dorian Gray Moment" March 24, 2017
      The following response by Dulcis Memoria to yesterday's discussion of the Princeton seminary controversy is so powerful that I want to lift it from the comboxes here and share it with all of you as a posting. Dulcis writes, This is analagous to the people on the left saying we need to "reach out" to rural Trump supporters in order to understan […]

    • The Princeton Seminary Controversy: Concluding Thoughts About White Male Privilege and Intersectionality March 24, 2017
      The discussion about the furor regarding Princeton Seminary's decision to withhold its Kuyper Prize for Excellence in Reformed Theology and Public Witness from Presbyterian pastor Tim Keller continued at various internet sites yesterday.

    • Not Our President November 16, 2016
      To hear the simplistic denial of those who scream out with naiveté “give Trump a chance” as they condemn others engaged in selfless protest against a certain political and social tsunami in the making, is to ignore his life-time public embrace of policies that tens of millions reject as not just destructive, but evil per se. They are not mistaken.Those in st […]

      Another Moody Blues song. This one, Your Wildest Dreams, was released in 1986. The band had gone through some changes by then. One of the founding members and the Mellotron player, Mike Pinder, was no longer in the band and had been replaced by another keyboardist. Also, the bands music was being perceived as less symphonic and more pop-ish. Your Wildest Dre […]
