Briarwood Presbyterian Church already has more than 4,000 members, two private schools and its own radio station. And if administrators have their way, the wealthy congregation could soon add something that no other American church has: its own police force.

Faith Matters: Moving on

posted: 03/18/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

A little more than a decade ago, I rolled into town with little more than a directive from the Episcopal Bishop of Arkansas to plant a church in Bentonville. After signing a lease for a garage apartment overlooking the local cemetery, I shook my new landlord's hand and said, "Freddie, you are my best friend in Benton County." Freddie was, in fact, the only person I knew in Benton County, but since then, I have made many very good friends here in this beautiful corner of Northwest Arkansas.

Faith Matters: Peace, Shalom, Salaam

Last week, I asked our local rabbi and the imam of the Islamic center, if they would be available for coffee and conversation. Having heard the national news of vandalism at multiple Jewish cemeteries, and the anti-immigrant attack at a mosque in Quebec City, I wondered if it was time in Northwest Arkansas for Christian faith leaders to take effective action against hate speech and hate crimes -- or at the very least discover additional ways to support our neighbors in faith and increase the quality of interfaith dialogue.
