Wesley Hill: God of the messy

Raymond J. Nogar was a mid-20th century philosopher of science. He wasn't a bad lay theologian either.

Wesley Hill: Singles in church

You don’t need a big program to practice hospitality to singles in the church.

Wesley Hill: Stay put

The lethargic bureaucracy of a languishing institution makes us want to leave. But escapism isn't the answer.

Wesley Hill: Table settings

Different liturgical traditions don't oppose one another. They reveal the manifold beauty of God's love.

Wesley Hill: Leading with Luther

Martin Luther reminds Christian leaders of their most basic task -- to embody the truth that God is known in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

Wesley Hill: Church without partitions

Despite our culture’s strongly individualistic bent, we are part of one another, and we ought to find ways to remind ourselves of that solidarity.

Wesley Hill: Following our names around

Truthfulness isn’t the easiest character trait to acquire. Sometimes it feels like we’re hiding our true selves behind a name, title or office.

Wesley Hill: Enemies of closure

We Christians have spiritual and theological reasons to celebrate finitude, our limited time and space, our inability to be and do everything we’d like to be and do.

Wesley Hill: Anger room

On Good Friday the spears were real. We can admit the spears we’ve felt are real, too.
