Viral Pandemonium

Life has become. . .strange. It feels like 9/11 colliding with Black Friday. The panic that has been building over the past couple of weeks, was offset by the fact that each day was still bringing life as usual. The topics of conversation at work included speculation about the sudden hoarding of toilet paper. The... Continue Reading →

Putting My Time Where My Mouth Is

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I don’t think that is theologically sound, but I do understand the truth that we as humans tend not to follow through on our intentions. I know that I am walking the path to eternal life in heaven, yet I find myself frustrated with... Continue Reading →

Worshiping Christmas

In case there is any doubt, I have many fond memories of Christmas from my childhood.

That was during my Whirlwind Season  of busyness and stress, but I found minutes here and there that I would read through that... Continue Reading →

Lost In The Crowd On Easter

All my life, I have gone to church every Sunday, unless I was sick or had to work. It began when I was a child; church was a mandatory family affair. I never minded going, and the older I became, the more invested I became in going. Because the church I grew up attending was... Continue Reading →
