Public theology is the greatest and most costly gift I’ve been given. For anyone who does theology publicly, it takes faith and caffeine. ☕️

He threatened a dying man. And now he made a widow cry. Trump is soulless.

Just got off phone with Rep. Frederica Wilson, who overheard Trump's call with widow. Said she wanted to curse POTUS out for making her cry.

So, remember Marguerite de Navarre, Mother of the Renaissance, poet, patron, visionary. Reformer.

A unified, learned church. Renaissance and Reformation together, rather than drifting apart.

She drew together the best traditions of Catholic faith, Protestant renewal & humanist learning in synthesis of heart, spirit, and mind.

Although she never renounced Catholicism, her work and patronage contributed to the development of Protestantism across Europe.

Marguerite de Navarre (1492-1549), Queen of Navarre, was persecuted by the Sorbonne for her religious writings being too "evangelical."

As Protestants celebrate their 500th birthday, it is important to remember that the Reformation wasn't just led by men.

Oct 31 is the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation. If it were a product on Amazon, I’d give it 3 stars or 4 stars.
