What is Faith?

What does it mean to have faith in God? The Shema Yisrael (usually shortened to Shema) states, “Hear O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one.” The Shema is found in Deuteronomy, and forms the basis of most Jewish prayer services. It is a continual reminder to the Jewish people of the Divine […]

God Sucks

I finished my lunch, and paid for it. After the tip for the waitress, I paid ten dollars total. They swiped my debit card, gave me my receipt, and told me to have a good day. A sentiment which I returned. When I walked out of the restaurant, there was a beggar woman sitting out […]

A Prayer for Good Friday

A Prayer for Good Friday Lord Christ, have mercy upon us your servants. Give us grace this day to walk in love and peace to the glory of your Name. Keep us ever mindful of your most holy Passion, that we too may be faithful witnesses, and die to self this day. Holy Mary, God-bearer, […]


I’m still trying to figure out how to define my experience watching “Selma”, last night. The closest I can come to, is that it was a spiritual experience. “Selma” is heart-wrenching, and beautiful.

A Response to Ferguson

For my brothers and sisters in Ferguson – the Lord is with you. While I know of your tears and your pain, I cannot say I understand it. I sympathize with your plight, but I have no firsthand experience with which to compare. I am a white man living in the United States. I have […]

I Am A Christian

I am a Christian. I believe that Jesus Christ is the figure upon whom all should base their lives and hope. I am a fundamentalist. I believe in the fundamentals of the faith – that God loves the world so much that He gave His only Son to die for it. God became man, so […]

God Bless the Refugees

God Bless the Refugees To this land they have traversed, From dangers only God can tell. Chancing life and limb and sanity; Daring climate extremes, and living hell. For a chance at freedom, it was worth it all. Some lost friends along the way, They were herded like cattle, Once reaching Freedom’s shore. Their entire […]
