We can just continue to use our gifts in ways that express our authorial calling. Perhaps it is good to remember that many famous authors did not get discovered until after their death. That may not help current sales, but it is a reminder that if we write from the heart then what we share will have value. (less)

Before he takes the month of August off, Sightings contributor Martin Marty has decided to opine on the state of the clergy -- or the vanishing of the clergy in America. As churches shrink and close opportunities for clergy, most of us being rather well educated, are becoming fewer in number. There are plenty of churches out there, but fewer can sustain paid staff at a rate that is commensurate... Read more of this blog post »

Gustavo Gutiérrez
“Charity is today a 'political charity.'. . . it means the transformation of a society structured to benefit a few who appropriate to themselves the value of the work of others. This transformation ought to be directed toward a radical change in the foundation of society, that is, the private ownership of the means of production.”
Gustavo Gutiérrez, A Theology of Liberation

“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.”
