“Living By Theology”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
Before we create our elevator speeches, perhaps we ought to know what other people understand by the words ‘religion,’ ‘theology’ and ‘belief.’ If we build our own theology, is it strong enough to stand upon?

“The Hero’s Journey: What Again?
The Reverend Annie Foerster
I promise this is the last in the series of explorations of what it means to live the hero’s journey. Didn’t I last speak about being done? Spoiler alert—the series should have been called The Hero’s Journeys (plural). Yikes!

June 17
“Who Says?”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
Where do you get your authority for your beliefs, your faith, your actions? From the Constitution? From your own experiences? From study and reading? From parents and peers? Yes. Perhaps the next question is Who Needs Authority?

“Becoming Invincible: Overcoming Fear Through Reason and Experience”
John Beckett

Sometimes fear is rational. Other times it’s not. Most times it’s a little of both, and that makes it really complicated. But through reason and experience, we can keep fear from controlling our lives.We live in fearful times—or so we’re told. Politicians attempt to exploit our fears, while others claim fear is only an illusion and attempt to shame those who are afraid.
