    ArticleThe Uniform Justice Experience, From the Tour to...

    Can theatre uncover the surface of police-community conflict? Absolutely. Because writing a play is something like opting to write a letter instead of engaging in an emotionally charged argument with someone you’re in conflict with. The kind of argument where you worry that the words won’t come out right, if at all. If only... more...

    ArticleDeclaration Rights, an Idea for the Next Decade

    A week ago, we held an in-depth conversation with members of Intersections' Leadership Council and some invited guests. It was a fascinating conversation during which we examined the near-decade life of Intersections' and looked at examples of how we might move forward during our next ten years. Our gathering took place against... more...

    ArticleThis is REAL Christian Persecution: Augusta...

    Christian persecution in the United States is real. It’s just not what you think. Christian persecution isn’t about having to offer birth control to women. It’s not about having to serve wedding cakes to gay and lesbian couples. Christian persecution isn’t even having people call you out when you spout... more...

    ArticleA Victim, Framed by the Media

    Shortly after the horrific tragedy at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, we were performing Uniform Justice, our play that addresses issues of community-police relations in our nation’s urban centers. The setting was an all-black congregation in Queens, New York. The hall—which would ultimately hold more than 70—was... more...

    ArticleTE'A Goes to the Midwest

    Twelve people get on a plane heading west ... and they land in Cleveland! (Where, despite the name of the popular TV show, it was not hot – 50 to 60 degrees at most).The 12 people are the TE’A Company:  nine actors, one playwright/director, one stage manager, and me, the artistic director. We were there for the last leg... more...

    ArticleHow Marriage Equality Is The Answer To Our Prayers

    You know the old joke about praying for God’s help? The one where the man in a storm waits atop his roof while flood waters rise, having prayed for God’s help for deliverance? Meanwhile, his neighbor drives off, a boat passes by and even a rescue helicopter hovers overhead. All of which the man refuses because he is... more...

    ArticleWhen, America, Will It End?

    The massacre inside Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Caroline, cuts deeply into the souls of every decent person across this nation. The faithless, unprovoked act of a 21 year old white man during a prayer service is unconscionable. Yet, it is not rare or historically unusual. The killing of nine human... more...

    ArticleWhen God Met Me On The Bridge

    Often times we think that we have to walk into the sanctuary, sit two rows back from the altar and just wait for our “aha” moment to realize what our purpose is, but that isn’t always the case. On March 5, 2015, I loaded two overly packed suitcases into one of three vans and headed thirteen hours down the road to Selma,... more...

    ArticleWhat is Uniform Justice Really About, Anyway? ...

    Have you seen the current poster for Uniform Justice? Or Visited the Uniform Justice Spring Tour page on the Intersections website? Or seen or heard any other press material? Maybe you just heard from a friend that there’s a new play out called Uniform Justice. That alone, I imagine, gives you a sense of what this play is about. If... more...

    ArticleHow do we respond to ISIS?

    As I travel home from three days in Kazakhstan at the V Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions, I am struck by the number of times I encountered two questions. These questions were perhaps most pointedly asked by Foreign Minister Erlan Idrissov in a private briefing with members of the small American delegation in Astana:... more...
