Child of Hope. Poetry for such a time as this.

by Roger Wolsey

I am the wind rushing by seeing all the world’s great pain. I am the land people make love upon that’s nurtured, war-torn, and raped. I am the Sun dishonored whose radiant energy is tragically squandered. I am the water getting warmer and ready to cover the earth. I am the volatile atmosphere seeking your […]

We are Sodom.

by Roger Wolsey

The following article is one of my favorites that I’ve ever come across. I found it 14 years ago in The Wittenberg Door Magazine. It was written by a former Republican lawmaker who was repenting of his sins of sodomy. (That website is no longer administered). – Roger Wolsey —————————————————- “What’s Mine is Yours” Confessions […]

Repurposing the Rubble Remnants.

by Roger Wolsey

We like to think that we’re progressing. We like to think that we’re evolving. We like to think that society is on the verge of a Great Leap Forward, a dawning of an age of Aquarius, bounding from blue to orange, green, yellow, turquoise, & coral with “Indigo children” rising.   We’d like to think […]

Atoning for bad theology – both kinds.

by Roger Wolsey

We humans frequently feel a sense of being less than – less than whole, less than healed, less than okay, less than worthy, less than spiritual, less than “connected,” less than Divine. This felt sense of less than, this sense of a gap between an ideal state and present reality, is what humans need to […]

Prayer Medicine for Brave Men & Women.

by Roger Wolsey

Caution: This prayer is strong medicine. It’s been coming through for the last few days. I offer it with trepidation and care for all. You may want to sit down first though. BROTHER Brother, I need you. Brother, I call to you. Through the eons of pain, guilt, war, shame, and the ravaging of my […]

Why My Fish are Kissing – and Believe in Evolution.

by Roger Wolsey

I’m a person who notices bumper-stickers when I’m out and about and I enjoy making mention of the more interesting ones in my sermons. It seems that there are some of you who enjoy this kind of thing as well – in fact a few of you have approach me to ask me about the […]

It’s Time for the Church to Grow-up about Sex.

by Roger Wolsey

I serve as a campus minister at the University of Colorado in Boulder. This city is over a mile above sea level and many young adults end up getting their stomachs pumped due to alcohol poisoning – especially in the fall when students who are living away from home for the first time and without […]

It’s time for Progressive Christianity.

by Roger Wolsey

What has come to pass as “conventional/popular Christianity” — isn’t what Christianity is actually about. It’s time for progressive Christianity. Friends, Jesus isn’t God. Jesus didn’t die for our sins. Jesus wasn’t killed instead of us. God isn’t wrathful or vindictive. There isn’t a hell (other than ones that we create here on this earth). […]

EarthMamaGaiaGoddess

by Roger Wolsey

Planet Earth is at risk. It is actively under attack and there is much blame to go around. It’d be easy to point numerous fingers at the abhorrent policies coming from a certain administration – really easy – but the truth is we’re all complicit. Another truth is that “It is better promote what you […]
