I listen to a lot of podcasts on my commute. The Heretics episode of This American Life hit close to home this week. I’ve been grappling with my faith now for a while, and there’s so much other stuff going on in my life right now that I keep pushing it into the background. But,… Continue reading Heretics

Join the Impact: We Marched in Jacksonville!

The rest of the pics are here. Unlike most other events I attend, I spent more time “present” than taking pictures.

Let the church dictate the… Continue reading I just spent $80 filling up my gas tank

On the one hand, the church released a statement saying that the church is neutral in political elections but encourages members to participate in the process. On the other, they come out in favor of… Continue reading Not Again… Love Thy Neighbor
