Micro- Aggression- Passive- Aggression- these things are aggressive, and they are not okay. I have been reflecting a lot about what our actions or lack thereof communicate, about our motivations, and how we exploit people. What do we say to people through our words? And through our silence… how do…


My 1st Bris and Subsequent Reflection on Christ

(Image from tshirtpalace.com)

PREFACE:

I attended my first bris this morning, albeit via zoom, for the son of one of my best friend’s from high school. Perhaps that is why my mind is piqued toward analyzing my faith this morning. Okay- that’s a lie. My…

October 9th, 2021 Journal 6:45 a.m.

My parents are divorced. They were married a little over 19 years I believe, but they’ve been divorced now more than 20. They are not proud of it, I venture to say, although I suppose I haven’t sat down and ever said, “Hey Mom,”…


Dear Beloved Friends and Family,

What do Christians do? Have funerals; talk about how the person is with…


Disordered Loves:

I’ve been telling Jesse all week that I had to have time to write before the election, before Tuesday. I’ve been mostly silent the last few months, a complete change from what you all witnessed from late March to early July. I haven’t said as much, but I’ve taken a…
