"Prophets or Profits" by Peter Laarman

Ched Myers - Fri, 09/29/2017 - 2:20pm

Note: This concise analysis from our friend Rev. Peter Laarman on the political economy of taxation is reposted from Religion Dispatches. 

For almost ten years now, the folks at Sojourners and other progressive evangelical outfits have been reminding us that "budgets are moral documents." All well and good. I agree. But I will add that tax systems are at least as revealing, perhaps more so, when it comes to the ethical bearings of any state or nation.

"The World Itself is Blowing the Great Shofar: Awake!!" by Rabbi Arthur Waskow

Ched Myers - Wed, 09/06/2017 - 7:49am

Note:  This is an abbreviated version of a reflection posted by Rabbi Waskow on 0/6/17 at https://theshalomcenter.org/.  As usual, Art is right on in his grasp of deep tradition and current events.

We are approaching Rosh Hashanah, when we ourselves blow the Shofar  -- puffing a small breath of air into the small end of the ram’s horn to come out the other end as an outcry of four distinct notes: alarm, broken-heart, grief, and awe-filled transformation.
