In the aftermath of September 11, it was almost a cliché in some quarters to say that terrorism was bred by poverty and political helplessness, and there were two kinds of hostile response to this. There were those (usually on the right) who said that this was a false and sentimental account of the motivation of the killers: it was “blaming the victim,” indulging in facile anti-American feeling; it ignored the fact that the “typical” Al-Qaeda activist seemed to beRead more

Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being obedient to the point of death—even death on a Cross.
Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as refuse, in order that I may gain Christ, and beRead more

Some years ago, while I was working in the Oklahoma City National Memorial Archives, I came across a poem by a young woman in high school whose father, a Secret Service agent, had been murdered in the Oklahoma City bombing. She writes:
And I discover a dark and lonely place

So much in the aftermath of the horrors of September 11 reminds me ofRead more

The last Tuesday the staff of Trinity Church saw together at its 74 Trinity Place office home was dark and horrific and it changed many lives.
On January 22, the staff worked at Trinity's main offices for the first time since terrorist attacks on the nearby World Trade Center forced them first out of Manhattan by foot and ferry, and then, in the business days that followed, to office space outside of the "frozen zone" in which the church stood.Read more
