"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."

In a time when there’s so much ill-informed criticism and denunciation of religion, here’s a refreshing reflection on “good religion” from Slate’s William Saletan. He writes of Michael Cromartie, who died recently, and who taught Saletan and others that there is such a thing as good religion and what it looks like.

Will a post-religious America be liberated and liberal? Maybe not argues this essay from “This Week” magazine. The movement of “post-religion” and “post-Christian” appear to be a matter of considerable regional variation with preponderence in the NE and the NW. But I agree with this writer that with the hoped for religionless society of securalists, we may discover we have lost a lot more than we suspect and gained little.

Two old enemies work together for a stronger political center. Interesting piece here about liberal Bill Galston and conservative Bill Kristol working together in the interest of sane and productive politics.

Attacking Trump is not a winning message for Democrats. This article from Politico reviews Democratic Party attempts to figure out how to approach future elections. Conclusion: you won’t win just by attacking Trump. Nor will a laundry list of “progressive” economic ideas have broad appeal. So far Joe Biden seems to me the only Dem who is getting the need to talk to working and middle classes in language they care about.
