My Confessionary

As you read this, I would like you to know that it was written prior to Trump becoming our President elect. In Leaves Reinhold Niebuhr wrote “if a gospel is preached without opposition it is simply not the gospel which resulted in the cross.”  This sentence wrecked me when I read it.  Even though I’m not sure…

Bah Humbug Starbucks

Once again, Christians are more concerned with what someone else is doing rather than what they are doing as a community of people who should be changing the world with their actions. Instead the supreme desire at the present is for Starbucks to bring the message of Christmas because nothing preaches Christmas like a snowman on a $5…

Set Love Free

So much of our life is consumed and saturated with everything but love.  We can convince ourselves that Love is in this or Love is why we do that, but do we ever just live life fueled with Love and nothing else? I want to begin to love in a way that it is the…

As some of you know I’m a vegetarian.  I’ve been a veg for over two years now.  The process wasn’t easy but it was something I knew I must do.  My convictions tend to get the better of me from time to time.  In the beginning of this journey I read several studies, ridiculous amounts…

Love takes you places

Brennan Manning once asked the question What would the church look like if we erred from an excess of compassion rather than from a stingy and legalistic lack of it? after much coffee, thought, and time i’ve arrived at a conclusion. i believe the church would be more nomadic, if in fact it erred from an…
