Peter Maurin(1877-1949)

I have discovered Peter by way of Dorothy Day. Very thought provoking and completely applicable to explain where we find ourselves today…pretending there is a moral high ground in identity politics, believing war can make peace and that the government can save us from consuming this world and ourselves to death. When Christ is KingContinue reading “Peter Maurin(1877-1949)”

The gift of being lost

“Not till we are lost, in other words not till we have lost the world, do we begin to find ourselves, and realize where we are and the infinite extent of our relations.” Henry David Thoreau “And this is the simple truth–that to live is to feel oneself lost. He who accepts it has alreadyContinue reading “The gift of being lost”

Rights and Responsibilities

Regardless of the situation, we are responsible for how we respond. When I say we are responsible, I mean that I am responsible and you are responsible for how we individually respond…regardless of the situation. This is called personal responsibility. Yes, everyone has the right to feel or think and it is your personal responsibilityContinue reading “Rights and Responsibilities”

Dark nights of the soul

During what was the darkest and hardest season of my life, God took years of theology and doctrine and sifted it like grain on a threshing floor. In a relatively short amount of time, I lost almost all of the theology and doctrine that I had spent a lot time, energy and money studying, andContinue reading “Dark nights of the soul”

Jesus Didn’t Just Take A Knee

It’s very easy diagnosis. It takes about half a brain to look around and see a world full of people deluding ourselves from our own selves with food, drugs, money, sex, politics, religion, sports, social media, entertainment, power, hobbies, information, anger and lots of opinions. Look at the results of our distractions, the number oneContinue reading “Jesus Didn’t Just Take A Knee”

You can eat whatever you want if…

Warning-this is not a political post. This is a post about telling the truth about what’s happening now and what’s coming. It seems that there has been some pushback on Senator Harris’s comments about limiting the intake of red meat. Can you imagine the nerve of Senator Harris addressing an epidemic that involves 88% ofContinue reading “You can eat whatever you want if…”

Old White Men (Caucasians- if using proper definitions) Worth Your Time

From my own personal experience, these are some of the beautiful voices of truth, love and wisdom that have helped me to remember who I am and how I am naturally designed to be a healthy, whole and holy human being, encouraged me with the encouragement they were encouraged by, inspired and nourished me withContinue reading “Old White Men (Caucasians- if using proper definitions) Worth Your Time”

Myth of a Christian nation

From Soren Kierkegaard (1815-1855) THE DRONESIn the Republic Socrates constantly employs a metaphor from the beehive to describe the pernicious members of society.This image fits the whole of Christendom and the official clergy admirably. They are just consumers, living off Christianity and giving the appearance of nourishing and serving Christianity, while their ardour and zealContinue reading “Myth of a Christian nation”

Be careful little eyes

Growing up in the church, I learned many things as a child that I have come back to after many years of studying theology and doctrine to realize their utter importance in who I am, what I believe and, consequently, what I do. For instance, if you don’t really believe that Jesus loves you andContinue reading “Be careful little eyes”

The Way of Fools
