A Twist of Fate

A Twist of Fate

The other week I wrote about how I believe in “luck” under the mathematical terms of random numbers and probability. The example I gave was how I run to praise music and whether or not God overrode the random number algorithm on my phone to “choose” the songs I needed to hear. Well, God wanted […]

If I Have Not Love

If I Have Not Love

Every now and then, something comes up in one of my various social circles that makes me think about how we as Christians should behave.
