Ok…we as Christians (read evangelical or fundamental Christians) continue to do considerable damage to the Gospel of Christ. Whether it be our “Things go better with Christ” Coca Cola logo tea shirt ripoff, Fred Phelps and his band of crazy “God hates the world and so do we” protestors, or even Benny Hinn charging admission to his “miracle” … More Sarah Palin hymn and who’s yer dadd..(I mean brother and sister)and more!
…a church where all are treated as equal, where gender, marital status, and age are all celebrated. Imagine a church where race and ethnicity are embraced and diversity is the norm.

“Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called the children of God.” Jesus I am not going to rehash the tragic events from the past weekend other than to say please pray for Gabrielle Giffords and all the others, for their healing and for their families. I am going to talk about hateful words and … More Peacemakers???
It didn’t take long in the new year for someone to frustrate me with their toxic mix of religion and politics. Case in point. At yesterday’s “Constitutional Reading” during the swearing-in ceremonies, a “birther” (someone who doesn’t believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States, yells out “Except Obama, except Obama!” as Article 2 section 1 … More “…HELP US JESUS!”

After what has seemed to be a lengthy absence I am back. I have had a bit of time for more soul-searching, and re-examination of motives and now I am ready to once again move forward with my thoughts. I know I am moody, introspective, and well just plan crazy! Over the past several months I have … More What’s Grace Got To Do With It?
