Don’t get me wrong. It’s not as rough as it is in Muslim countries. I can declare my faith openly here without fear of being killed, tortured, losing property or being imprisoned. Being a Christian doesn’t mean that I’ll lose my job. Before you throw stones at me or crucify me, hear me out. InContinue reading “Being a Christian in the US today is rough.”
I’ve been going through a very odd time lately…kind of a Jonah meets Job meets David kinda time. I’m reading Infidel right now. I just arrived at the point where the author has concluded that she’s an athiest. Reading the account of her life, the torture of her childhood and early adulthood, I understand herContinue reading “My heart and flesh cry out”
I love that there are seasons in life. Living in the Northeast, I am all too familiar with seasons…and the co-mingling of seasons.

I want to be a part of something much larger than I. I am really upset that I can’t find a churchContinue reading “Spirit longing”
I’m breaking my silence. Shocking, I know. Today my heart was broken. Once again. I don’t understand church folks. I just don’t. Is it that church folk don’t understand that they are broken? Do they think that because they are part of the “in” crowd that they are immune to pain? I’m a follower ofContinue reading “Hey “Christians””
I saw this on Tim Kurek’s blog. I couldn’t not post it.
I love talking with people who challenge me. I love talking with people who have great questions. I love people whose questions challenge the core of what I believe. I love questions that are asked, out loud, that I have asked internally but have never asked for fear of judgment. For so long, I’ve believedContinue reading “Blind Faith”
