  • Consider the SPIRIT of the law, not just the letter by tedmallory Yesterday
    It seems to me that both in our religion and our civics, many of us would do well to consider the "Spirit of the Law," and not just the "letter."
  • The Jesus Revolution by tedmallory Yesterday
    itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/word-of-life-church-podcast/id83833326 Great sermon by Brian Zahnd on Isaiah 56:1-8, Acts 8:4-32, & Galatians 3:28. Exclusion is legalistic, the Gospel, grace, love, & mercy are all INCLUSIVE.
  • Unconditional Love Requires Radical Forgiveness by tedmallory Jun 10, 2018
    BOOK REVIEW- I’ve only just started reading ‘Unconditional’ by Brian Zahnd and I have to say Wow. Zahnd gets to the very core of Jesus’ ministry; love & forgiveness. In the first couple of chapters he discusses stories from holocaust survivors Simon...
  • So much for that by tedmallory May 28, 2018
    Well, so much for writing briefly & concisely. That last one on John 3 was written entirely on my phone, by the way. I hate myself. Meanwhile all that writing, first about Memorial Day and then about theology hasn’t helped my angst any. Maybe I just need to draw. Too...
  • New Birth by tedmallory May 28, 2018
    This past Sunday was “Trinity Sunday” in most churches. The Gospel lesson at ours was Jesus’ theological discussion with a member of the council of priests in Jerusalem, a Pharisee named Nicodemus. I was struck hearing this discussion found in John 3 by how m...
  • Memorial Day Sentimentalizing by tedmallory May 28, 2018
    Here are a collection of Instagram and Facebook posts from this weekend. They’re more sentimental than angry or political, but because they’re so personal and passionate, I decided to post them under the “rant” banner rather than “Civics 101.&rdqu...
  • Summer Update by tedmallory May 28, 2018
    No promises, but in spite of being a middle-aged dude, I think I’m getting better at writing from my phone, prone to triggering auto-correct as my fumbling thumbs are. Anyway, here are some graphics that I may be able to use regardless of platform (laptop, tablet or phon...
  • Sketchbook Gestures by tedmallory Apr 19, 2018
    You don’t have to have special tools like charcoal or conté or 18”x24” newsprint- an average pen and a little 5x8 sketchbook are fine. A model is great, but unwitting strangers (or in this case a photo) are fine for practicing drawing.
  • Youth Voices Matter by tedmallory Mar 25, 2018
    This year’s my 30th class reunion. I’ve now been teaching for 25 years. At 48 I certainly see how impulsive teens can be and how prone to they can be to drama. But I also know how reflective & insightful they can be. When I was a Junior and Senior in high schoo...
  • A Valuable Read/View for Our Times by tedmallory Feb 13, 2018
    “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” ~Rev.Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1963 Thank you Kirwan Ins...
