Sally Quinn: What will God whisper in Herman Cain’s ear next?

Dec 6th, 2011 | By

Herman Cain said that God told him to run for president. “That’s when I prayed and prayed and prayed. I’m a man of faith. I had to do a lot of praying for this one, more praying than I’ve ever done before in my life,” the Baptist preacher said. “And when I finally realized that it was God saying that this is what I needed to do, I was like Moses. You’ve got the wrong man Lord. Are you sure?” Now Herman Cain has suspended his campaign. Did God tell him to do that? Why on earth would God tell

Starhawk: A Pagan Thanksgiving blessing (that anyone can use)

Dec 3rd, 2011 | By

This last weekend, I spoke on a panel about Elemental Theology at the American Academy of Religions. In the discussion, a question was raised about what interfaith prayer and ceremony might look like. So what follows is a Thanksgiving prayer that anyone can use. While it is formed with a Pagan focus on the sacred embodied in the natural world, it speaks of things we all have in common, without using names or symbols that might divide us. It’s my Thanksgiving offering to you all! We give thanks for this good green earth and all that lives upon it. Thanks

(One of these prayers could be used before each course of a Thanksgiving meal …) 1. Our Creator, gracious and good … We thank you for the good gifts of space and time, Necessary for our stories in all their mass and  Energy to unfold and fold, tangle and untangle,  Rise and fall and begin And end and begin again. For your gracious hospitality we thank You. If we, the other, were not given This where and this when in which to live, to move, to Be, then Where and when would we?

Faith vs. Works: Can Gingrich win the evangelical vote?

Dec 3rd, 2011 | By

Audience members listen as Republican presidential candidate former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is seen on a video monitor during the Thanksgiving Family Forum sponsored by The Family Leader, Saturday, Nov. 19, 2011, in Des Moines, Iowa. (Charlie Neibergall – AP) The 2012 presidential primary race has thus far failed to produce the archetypal Republican candidate with frontrunner staying power: a candidate who connects with the evangelical Christian base and who comfortably walks and talks “traditional family values.” As evangelical pastor Robert Jeffress (recently in the headlines for declaring that the Mormon faith is not a Christian religion) put it to

Aseem Shukla: A Hindu Thanksgiving prayer

Dec 2nd, 2011 | By

A historical rooting of Thanksgiving tradition in the intersection of early European immigrants with erstwhile “Indians” notwithstanding, the newest Indian Americans –not those native to the Americas–embrace this weekend with the same gusto.  A time to give thanks for life’s bounties– material and spiritual, and relish the bonds of family and friends over shared meals, Thanksgivings is a uniquely secular, non-sectarian and singularly American holiday that will put my family and millions of other on the road later today . A Hindu American family, mine will share a vegetarian meal rich with pastas, pumpkins and all of the traditional fixings–eschewing
