Deconstructing Faith – Part 1

Many of you know that I’ve been on a spiritual journey. I’m sure you’ve at least gathered as much by reading some of my posts either here or on Facebook. There’s a lot that I’ve learned, and a lot more that I’ve unlearned. I don’t know what the ramifications of writing this series of posts will be, but I honestly don’t care. My websi… Read more

The Wrong Gospel

Was I really that person? Did I really think that way?

There once was a lady who had feet that were a knotted mess. Her feet looked that way not because of any sort of disease, but because she refused to take good shoes from the incoming donations in the community in which she served.

Even in childhood, I can recall having friends and acquaintances come and ask for my advice or opinion about something. Sometimes it’s part of an on-going dis… Read more

An Invitation

A letter particularly to church leaders:

Eventually you’ll learn more about me, and you may even tune me out when that happens. That’s okay. I anticipate that. I also expect the onslaught of backlash I… Read more
