MAYbe you thought this month’s ‘pewsletter’ would never come? May, Maybe, get it? Have no fear, the second Saturday is here. Do I always post on the second Saturday of the month? No. Am I going to try to make it a thing? Also no, but the alliteration worked this …

What’s New in the Pew: March Edition

Happy Saturday, friends of the interwebs. In my neck of the woods, today carries the Spring equivalent of what I call “Charlie Brown Skies” in Autumn; every late-Octoberish around here, we get those milky watercolor skies with clouds that melt into what C.S. Lewis terms “silvers and doves” and other …

Doctrine and Dead Writers

For the love of Lewis.

Three passages of his have remained with me throughout the years. In his book Mere Christianity, Lewis explores the difficulty that every person who has ever faced the Lord’s prayer with bald honesty faces…

December, jk.

Hi, hello, and welcome!  If you’re thinking, ‘wow, December’s newsletter is late,’ you are not wrong. Instead of Donatist December and all the manner of Christmas frivolity I had planned, we all caught Covid instead and without guile, it was the sickest I’ve ever been in my life, even being …

Hello, there.

Hello there, friend. It’s that special time of year… time for ‘bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils,’ under trees about to woo us with all their fire and fade. The mornings will be tinged with that spicy leaf smell. People will be putting perfectly good squash in their coffees, where no …

The Antidote to Me, Myself, and I

“The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom, and humility comes before honor.” – Proverbs 15:33 The fear of the Lord. This phrase used to confuse and frighten me, but now it feels more like a grounding reassurance, a safety and security, a binding to God in love. How …

In the Weary Waiting

“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” – Galatians 6:9 Tired. If “busy” was the word of the last decade, “tired” may be the most apt this first year into …
