    ArticleDinner with the People of the Book

    Last April, 2013, I traveled to Pakistan for the first time as part of the U.S.-Pakistan Interreligious Consortium (UPIC) with Intersections International.  I was privileged to have met many of the distinguished scholars of Islamic Studies on that trip, many of whom I encountered again on January 8, 2014, as they visited the U.S.... more...

    ArticleThe U.S. Marines and a Cautionary Tale

    I needed to take a seat when I read the news. On the morning of January 9th, the New York Times ran a front page article entitled, “Falluja’s Fall Stuns Marines Who Fought There.”  It was aptly described in the article as a gut punch. I had not personally fought in Operation Phantom Fury, but one of the worse... more...

    ArticleA Christmas Parable–In Real Time

    Sometimes, if we are attentive to the flow of life around us, the stories that unfold from our day-to-day lives reveal poignant and profound intersections–things you can't make up, but that remind you of how holy moments interrupt our lives in real time and when without warning. Such an experience happened to me over the... more...

    Article“Yesterday’s Warriors. Today’s Scholars....

    A few years ago, I was told in no uncertain terms that military service is simply another form of social welfare and that those of us in the military aren’t smart enough or qualified to do much else. I thought of those words a number of times over the past three days while I was at the Student-Veterans of America (SVA) 6th Annual... more...

    ArticleRediscovering My Home in The Catholic Church

    On the first Sunday of February 2013, I took my first steps back into the Catholic Church. I was happy to see and hear everything was pretty much the same as when I had left. I had been inside many Catholic Churches over the years, most are too beautiful not to go into, but attending mass was a whole different thing. It only took that... more...

    ArticleHuman Interaction: A Catalyst for Peace

    To miss the plane for your first business trip on a new job is every professional’s nightmare. Two Dayquil, one fizzy cup of Airborne, some Echinacea and a daub of Tiger Balm later, I made my flight to San Francisco on the one-month anniversary of my employment. This was only my second visit to Fog City and I was more than elated... more...

    ArticleBeyond Boundaries: A Stranger’s Call, A TEDx,...

    When I answered a phone call from a complete stranger back in October, I had no idea that the Veteran-Civilian Dialogue (VCD) had spilled over into circles of academic research.   Yet, there it was - a phone call from Virginia Tech.  More specifically, it was a call from Eric Hodges, Marine Corps veteran, and PhD candidate... more...
