  • BLOG—”Above all, try something”: On food insecurity in the village

    Eighteen months ago, Kate Anderson came to my office at First Presbyterian Church and said, “I feel called to address food insecurity, but I don’t know what that looks like yet.” Now, with three financial donors and a growing list of volunteers, it seems our prayers are being answered. 

  • BLOG—Rest in Hell, Bernard Law

    Jesus defined the wicked as those who do not operate their lives based upon the principles of love, mercy, compassion, and equanimity. Sadly, Christians have long fallen short of these ideals.

  • BLOG—Poor Jerusalem

    Jerusalem was a backwater town controlled by a Semitic tribe called the Jebusites before King David cast his eyes upon it around 1000 BCE. He saw Jerusalem’s location and natural fortifications as being perfect for a great capital city that could transcended tribal identification and unite the people.

  • BLOG—Tacos, Tacos, Tacos!

    Miguel’s Tacos. Talented musicians making a joyful noise. Tables waiting to be turned into community centers. November 16, First Presbyterian, 6-9pm. All are welcome.

  • BLOG–“Refugee 101” and “Muslim Community Voices” offerings by the BCP

    As the current administration continues to threaten immigrants, refugees, and Muslims, let us be proactive in our resistance. You can help by simply taking surveys, attending events, and participating in conversations aimed at future action.

  • BLOG — Living Pilate, Living Christ

    In which a recovering biblical scholar long-windedly tries to say goodbye to Barry Dennen.

  • BLOG–Enacting MLK’s Beloved Community: Yellow Springs Edition

    What began with a community meeting in 2015 is culminating in a six-week journey this fall. Do we have the communal will to be in significant relationships with refugees and Muslims in the greater-Dayton area? 

  • BLOG — After the Story: The Grannies of Waitaha

    The balance between being a pastor and a reporter is sometimes difficult for me, in that I bring Pastor Aaron to interviews and stories where I should be looking with the eyes of a journalist.

  • A rare visit from Maori ‘grannies’

    Three Maori tribal elders of the Waitaha nation are visiting the village at the invitation of tribal priest Raymond Ruka, who lives in the Yellow Springs area. While here, the women, who are members of the Waitaha Grandmothers Executive Council, will offer prayers, earth blessings and storytelling, including at the local schools. Standing, from left, is Kathleen Ruka Wheremate and Jane Mihingarangi Ruka. Seated is Rosina “Rosie” Huriwai. (Photo by Aaron Saari)

    Only Raymond Ruka could have the tribal standing to extend the invitation that has brought three Maori tribal elders all the way from New Zealand to Yellow Springs.
