Peter W. Marty is publisher of the Century and senior pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Davenport, Iowa.
As I drive past boarded-up churches, I am more convinced than ever that many congregations could afford to revisit their neighbor ethic.
In America, we cherish the inalienable right to have things our way.
The cross is anything but a success story. Failure and disappointment are at the heart of Christianity.
Those of us who sought to change the congregation's communion practice met with indifference. So late one Saturday I took matters into my own hands.
The Century's work relies primarily on subscriptions and donations. Thank you for supporting nonprofit journalism.
