"For some time now, Tony Robinson has been giving us pastors wonderful guidance for the challenges of pastoral leadership. Tony is a wise, faithful pastoral theologian. His work is always useful, practical and informed by a true pastor's heart. When pastors are listing the voices that challenge and help them in their work, they always mention Tony Robinson."

My next SUN Guide program at Discovery Park, is a walk/ tour of the Fort Lawton Cemetery at the Park. This military cemetary has an interesting story and some surprising features. Join me for a visit on the Saturday before Halloween, October 28. The program is from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Cider and donuts too! Here’s a link. Scroll down to find information and to register.

The nature (different “nature” than above) and quality of our thinking, is the subject of this excellent David Brooks column. More than anything else this — the nature and quality of our thought processes — is what alarms me today. I see group think in the progressive church, in Seattle politics, and of course, in shoddy-thinker-in-chief, Trump.

Here’s a thoughtful piece on how the media these days joins the political fray and erodes public intelligence. Relates to Brooks piece above, implicitly.
