You Don’t Get to Choose

You Don’t Get to Choose

In last week’s post, I talked about how each and every one of us sins, so we shouldn’t judge one sin greater than others or label certain people as sinners, because we ALL fall into this category. But, as promised, that’s not all I have to say about that. As I said last week, ultimately, […]

Not much writing going on at present. I’ve had the wonderful privilege of attending our yearly pastor’s conference out in sunny California. This is one my favorite times as it’s a great opportunity for me to get away with Jesus and spend time with friends I don’t see but once every year or two. I […]

Toward an understanding of the atonement

Toward an understanding of the atonement

For several years now, I’ve been leading a Sunday school class that’s made up largely of ladies older than me, which means it’s difficult to find lessons that will challenge them. They are usually a step ahead of me, to the point that I often consider the point of the lesson to just ask them […]

I Will

I Will

I lie awake but I am dead inside, my body aches and eyes are wide, open and shut, at the same time. I am weary from striving to reach the top of the hill; the way out of this place I like to call “home”. It is home. A home of hurt, of sickness, of […]

Creationism vs. Evolution

Creationism vs. Evolution

*Everyone takes out their perspective flags and prepares for war. Whoa. Whoa. Let’s take a moment. That’s not the creation vs. evolution that I’m writing about here. It’s a much less dramatic and personal issue in this post. What I’m talking about is the creation of a story versus it’s evolution. Sorry for the obfuscation. No […]
