Why I Am Not An Atheist 2 – Experience

I’ll start with the central reason I’m not an atheist — my personal experience and perception of reality. That also happens to be the most difficult aspect to capture meaningfully in words. The most likely reaction to this post in the series will be that those who have experienced reality in a similar manner will […]

Evangelical Is Not Enough 1

I purchased Evangelical Is Not Enough by Thomas Howard because Elizabeth Esther decided to host a weekly book club conversation on her blog and her description of the book sounded interesting. I’m sure it will be more interesting to follow the conversation on her blog (this week’s installment kicks off with a video), so I […]

The Didache 1 – The Two Ways

This series is reflecting on the Didache if you want to read it separately. There are two ways, one of life and one of death, but a great difference between the two ways. I’m not the sort to separate the crunchy physicality of the Christian story from its spirituality. Yet, as I’ve read this opening […]
