In Mourning

I was going write a post on Spiritual Warfare, but then something truly sad happened this past week. For anyone reading this who doesn’t already know: Supreme Court Justice and all-around incredible woman Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away. In honor of her, I remember. Women are people too. And no human person exists purely for […]

Reining the Tongue

This week, I’ve felt called out on multiple levels about what I choose to say and not say. James 1:26 is one of those verses that I hold up in front of myself a lot: “Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their […]

IWSG: Truth Is…

It’s September – already – and the first Wednesday in September which means ISWG Day, the day when we come together and talk about writerly stuff. September 2 (optional) question: If you could choose one author, living or dead, to be your beta partner, who would it be and why? Haha, okay universe. This is […]

On Being Catholic

This past week, I had a couple of interesting online conversations going on, one with a fundamentalist Christian, the other with this Roman Catholic group I’m involved with online. With the former, I found myself spending a lot of time trying to explain why I do not base my entire faith life on the Bible. […]

Divine Dance

Divine Dance I want to snap my fingers and ribbons of creation join and part and join together. Listen. I desire to whisper to you like the cosmic background radiation that proves all is not empty, some shadowless void. Turn. I burn to spin and pull you in like fragments of dense matter Galaxies and […]

All Manner of Things Will Be Well

I have so many thoughts racing through my head this week. It is the 75th anniversary of what some call a necessary act of war and others (like myself) not-so-privately think of as a terrorist act against a mostly-civilian population: the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Many people I’ve known and forgotten and remembered, who […]

The Image of God

The Christian life often feels like this: two steps forward and one step back. What does it mean to be created in the image of God? As soon as I type the words, imperfect metaphors come to mind told by imperfect people like myself trying to say what we mean. If only we could image […]

LTG: There Is Love

Hi God, It’s me again, the problem child. As it turns out, I do not have Covid-19. I should be happy about this, and I am, but mostly I am still quite exhausted. It’s this surreal moment that gives me a chance to reassess my life choices leading up to this moment in time. I […]
