    ArticleDr. Ben Carson and Islam

    With his poll numbers rising, increased attention has been directed at Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson. His reserved, mild-mannered approach to campaigning has been a huge contrast to the bellicose front runner Donald J. Trump, causing deeply conservative Republicans, especially evangelicals, to gravitate to him as an... more...

    ArticleHow My Queer Son Became More Than A Blessing To Me

    When I was pregnant with my son, my thoughts were muffled with unspeakable joy, of course, coupled with a touch of fear; as well as the sounds of 2am feedings, dirty diapers, fatigue, birthday parties filled with screaming crumb snatchers, 3 meals a day, playing games, lots of questions, and being able, by God's grace and mercy,... more...

    ArticleSyrian Refugees

    Recent technology upgrades at Intersections have caused sporadic gaps in our communications. Upon returning from a week-long conference in Washington, DC, I learned that the following blog was never posted. Sadly, the issues raised in this blog have only become more pressing over the past several days. We decided to go ahead and post it... more...

    ArticleA Meeting to Spark Hope, Insight, and Action

    Twenty-six of us sat in a circle at the back of the Amistad Chapel in the United Church of Christ’s national offices in Cleveland. Our group consisted of current and retired police officers, clergy, arts administrators, and community activists.

    ArticleTransgender Murders, A National Crisis

    In this Season of Trump, it is easy to miss news stories that speak volumes of who we are as a society and how we need to shift our priorities if all God’s children are to be guaranteed the safety, security and access to opportunity that so many of us take for granted. Voices that have been historically under-represented become... more...

    ArticleJesus' Mother Isn't Gonna Like That

    One of the things I love most about being Catholic is our unapologetic devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. I’ve always envisioned her to be the ultimate mother—she’d have to be wouldn’t she? God chose her to be the mother of our Savior. And by all accounts in the Bible, Mary was pretty awesome.... more...

    ArticleCelebrating the Wisdom and Warmth Prof. Abdul...

    I received an email last week from our close UPIC colleague, Junaid Ahmad, Director of the Center for Global Dialogue in Lahore, Pakistan. The email was a celebration, really, of a mutual friend and a leader in the Pakistani-American community on the West Coast, Professor Abdul Jabbar. What strikes me as I re-read his email is the... more...

    ArticleThe Inner Tug

    It really does seem hopeless sometimes. Everyday, I open the door, pick up the paper, open it and think, “What are we going to do”? The stories keep coming, and they keep getting worse. There is intractable conflict in every area on every level – from our devastating and deadly crisis in the rule of law, to the deep and... more...

    ArticleDeclaration Rights, an Idea for the Next Decade

    A week ago, we held an in-depth conversation with members of Intersections' Leadership Council and some invited guests. It was a fascinating conversation during which we examined the near-decade life of Intersections' and looked at examples of how we might move forward during our next ten years. Our gathering took place against... more...
