Why do you call me lord?

This week, someone was asking about the moral argument for faith in God. The moral argument goes something like this: we as human beings can never entirely comprehend moral good and bad. Therefore we need God. I paused to think about this. In general, I mistrust rational proofs of God, but especially when we try […]

FF: Surprise!

Surprise! Molly believes in doing little things to keep her marriage fresh, like today, for example. Without comment, she drops the plain white envelope next to the half-full bowl of raisin bran. Between bites, Liam opens the envelope and unfolds the papers. “What is this? Test results? For a prototype?” Molly goes to stand behind […]

There Remains a Rest Day

I can’t believe it’s Monday again. This week, I want to talk about the two sides of my most precious coin: the promises of God and the fact that eventually God has to come through – if God is God. Knowing this in my heart is like getting previews aka consolations from the Holy Spirit. […]

Feminism vs Toxic Masculinity

One of these days, I’m going to have a “normal” week. I’m not entirely sure what a normal week will look like. This week I had a post deleted from this sci fi fan site. And whatever. I was trying to be nice. Where to start this week? How about some not made up facts […]

Bringing Balance to The Force

I really want to write a spiritual reflection each week, and this week … I don’t even know where to start. I am reading a very interesting book called How to be Antiracist, all about changing racist policies while retaining respect for diverse cultures. I heartily recommend it if you haven’t read/aren’t reading it already. […]

FF: Wait For It

PHOTO PROMPT © Na’ama Yehuda “Waiting for your yes is like knowing it’s your birthday. The gifts are wrapped and waiting. That magical moment will come. Our eyes will meet, and we’ll both know. Wrapping paper will fall to the floor, and we’ll know.” I fold up the old love letter, written back before emails and […]

IWSG: What happens in quarantine…..

…stays in quarantine. Seriously, what just happened? I will admit to nothing about the past few months other than being a little weirder than I usually am – which, admittedly, is pretty weird. That’s okay. I had a lot of alone time, and that gave me a chance to come to peace with things about […]

Tired of Being Nice

One time, I went to a Muslim religious service. The guys told me ahead of time I didn’t have to dress as a woman or go behind the veil. I chose to. True confession: I loved it. If I could worship God in some way that no one ever had to see, if I could […]

LTG: Reparation for Sin

Hi dad aka 1st person of the trinity, A week ago, I had this dream. A guy was house-sitting for me while I was out of town. Then, he decided to rent my house out to some stranger. When I came back to visit, I found my friend living in a much cheaper house. With […]

The Spirit of Truth vs. Colonialism

I’m sorry for making excuses for the patriarchy and for (white) guys in general. I am truly sorry that I will probably continue to do so without realizing it. It’s this reflexive action, a product white, patriarchal society. Here’s an example of racism and colonialism: the Eurocentric system of worship with its all-male hierarchy. Imagine […]
