It’s the Third Thursday in May! And that means another great Cottage conversation — this month with Brian McLaren on his new book, Life After Doom. Here’s the recording of the live discussion. It is a good one. And he mentions a number of other books and authors — you may want to have a notepad nearby to jot them down. The book was featured in Tuesday’s … Read more ..read more

Life After Doom

Today is special at The Cottage. It is release day for Brian McLaren’s new book, Life After Doom. It is special for a personal reason: Brian and I are good colleagues and friends. It has never ceased to amaze us how we care about the same issues, see the world in similar ways, and discern spiritual trends and issues that are often under the surface. This friendship has influenced our writing and speaking for two decades. In a real way, you — our readers — have benefited from it through the work we each do. Release days are like birthdays for authors. And it is particularly special when a frien ..read more

Cottage Reader #3

Hello fellow readers, It’s been too long since the last Cottage Reader. Lent and Easter kept me busy at The Cottage and church, and now baseball season is here. I started a draft of this lamenting the sorry state of the Washington Nationals, but they’ve turned it around a bit lately, so I have to watch ALL the games just in case they might win. This is not helpful to getting a lot of reading done. I did, as promised in the last issue, read The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store. I read another novel, American Sycamore by Charles Kenney, lots and lots of articles and Substack posts, and I’ve beg ..read more

To celebrate, you can get an annual subscription at the deepest discount of the year — 20% off for all new subscriptions, gift subscriptions, or upgrades from free to paid. Get 20% off for 1 year The news has me thinking about boundaries and borders. Nearly every major story in global and U.S. news involves somebody’s incursion on somebody else’s territory. The two major wars raging are primarily about borders — Israel and Gaza, Russia and Ukraine. Both arguments are over who has a right to be where and who can control what. Wars aren’t always about bounda ..read more

It's May! Happy Birthday to The Cottage!

Happy Birthday! In May 2020, The Cottage launched on Substack. It was in the early months of the pandemic. There had been an earlier version of The Cottage (and some of you were on that list!) that was sent once a month before Substack even existed. Of course, the pandemic changed all of our work. I vividly remember learning that my speaking engagements had been cancelled through the end of 2020. I was bereft. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be isolated from readers and have no community to engage. So, with some hesitation and a lot of hope, I decided to try out this new technol ..read more

Dear Cottage Readers: Sunday Musings accidentally went out on Saturday night this week — because yours truly hit the publish button instead of the “schedule post” button! Oops. ? I know many of you look for it in your inbox on Sunday morning. In case you missed it when it went out last night, here’s the link: I hope you’ll enjoy it. And maybe a desperate preacher out there needed a little extra help on Saturday night! We’ll be back to the regular schedule next Sunday. Peace, Diana Subscribe now ..read more

The Cottage is a newsletter for head and heart — it both informs and inspires readers about concerns of faith and culture. Midweek posts are usually on religion and the news; Sunday posts are always reflections on scripture and poetry. Almost all of the content is free and open because some readers support this project with a monthly or yearly subscription. Reader subscriptions are the only financial underwriting of the Cottage — there is no institutional sponsor, no advertising, and no list selling. The Cottage happens because readers and friends believe in it. Please consider joining them. T ..read more
