Rev. Ed Churchman takes a good and thurrah look at what makes a myth, Mr. Lebowski. All too often it seems we fail to realize that the truth might not be such a…uh, uh, you know? That is, we sometimes forget how to think mythically. Rev. Ed helps guard us against those who would make too many literal connections.
When in York…
In honor of the upcoming Dudestock festival on August 6th, Rev. Ed Churchman tells us a little about the very dudely city of York that will play host to the event. Sounds like a totally unspoiled pad, man. We’re looking forward to doing the usual, driving around, the occasional oat soda flashback.
The Truth, and When to Throw a Ringer
Rev. Ed Churchman digs deep once again, with an investigation into the nature of truth and untruth. Natural, zesty enter-lies? Something to sip on, dude.
Science Versus Religions – What’s the Beef?
Rev. Ed Churchman takes a look at the divide between science and religion. It might not be such a…a…you know? You’ve got your story, I’ve got mine. Down through the ages. That’s your perception. There’s a lot in Dudeism that can help us bridge the gap. Compeers, you know?

No Shirt, No Socks, No Stress
Rev. Ed Churchman returns with a lighthearted Dudeist screed espousing our holy reverence for dressing casually, and when possible, not dressing at all.

Keep it Limber, Dude
Rev. Ed Churchman pours us a tall cool one in honor of St. Patrick’s Day — a look at what it truly means to keep your mind limber. Hint: getting totally wasted on whiskey does not make it limber, it makes it limp. But the other danger is that of a rigid mind. How do we move through life limberly, like those maligned snakes old Patty drove out of Ireland? The honorable Reverend explains.
Levelling – In Pursuit of the Spiritual Bungalow
Rev. Ed Churchman bowls another big one to us from old blighty, explaining how the Levellers movement helped usher in a much more Dudeist way of life for the British.

Dudeciples and the Pan-Dudeian Nation
Rev. Ed Churchman looks at the relationship between Dudeist holy folks (Dudeciples) and the Dudeist lay population (Dudes). Just as with other religions, we need both the fully dudevout and the deeply casual — the Dudeist high-erarchy happily welcomes followers of varying dudegrees.
