    “All the coverage of the royal wedding made me wonder what the Bible says about kings and monarchies.” — Mary

    In the history of Israel covered by the Bible, several forms of government appear. In its earliest “pre-nation” existence (patriarchs, exodus from Egypt and wilderness wandering), Israel was essentially a form of theocracy. After the conquest of Canaan, “the nation” was at best a loose federation of tribes. The tribes came together in times of threat or distress, led by a charismatic leader (known as a “judge”; Judg. 4:10-19ff; I Sam. 7:15-17).

    “Is there anything in the Bible that might allow for same-sex marriage?”—Mark

    The Bible is unabashedly straightforward: the ideal for marriage is heterosexual. There are admittedly various forms of marriage in the Bible that may not meet the definition of what is often called the “traditional family” (e.g., multiple wives, concubinage, close degrees of marriage between half-siblings, cousins, et al).
    Furthermore, wedding “ceremonies,” as we moderns practice them, do not appear in Scripture. The arranged marriages and politically and religiously motivated unions found there are rarely openly endorsed or forcefully proscribed by Scripture.

  • Local group marks traditional holiday

    Our Lady of the Woods will celebrate the traditional holiday of Beltane with a ritual, feast and Maypole dance on Sunday in North Mesa Park. The Beltane Sabbat marks the beginning of the summer for the Celts.
    For many English towns, the Maypole remained stationed at the town center, becoming a gathering place for the whole season, which was a sort of ongoing block party.
    Our Lady of the Woods will recreate some of those good times at their celebration. The potluck feast that follows will give way to songs, dance and stories.

    “Earth Day made me wonder what the Bible says about caring for the Earth? —Sonya

    The Bible opens with a powerful portrayal of a God who is highly invested in the Earth and all that inhabits it. The “Creation Story” is a beautiful paean to the Creator, who brought something out of nothing and who is quite intentional in the way that something works. Indeed, the narrative clearly indicates that God really likes His handiwork (Gen. 1:10, passim)!

  • In Easter message, pope urges diplomacy in Libya

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI urged an end to fighting in Libya, using his Easter Sunday message to call for diplomacy and peace in the Middle East.

    Benedict also said that politics in North Africa and the Middle East should be based on respect for all.

    "In the current conflict in Libya, may diplomacy and dialogue replace arms, and may those who suffer as a result of the conflict be given access to humanitarian aid," he said.

    Referring to northern Africa and the Middle East, the pope prayed for the realization of a society where "every political choice is inspired by respect for the human person."
