The Woman at the Well is Me

First, I didn’t know what to write in this blog, so I remained silent for a time and asked the Spirit to lead me. This is the title that came out, and I had to ponder why. And this blog is filled with whys. But the Spirit answers them all by revealing the intention of […]

Our Time

Why does “Our Time” seem so much more adverse, so much more messy so much more disastrous than times we remember in history; those times long before the devastating, deplorable times, the truly heinous times decades ago or the recent past we choose to forget. Instead, we focus on breaking news and current chaos of […]

The War Against Rectitude

President Trump is becoming ever more sad and cynical, day by day revealing his tortured relationship to the truth. We cannot deny, at least to ourselves, the eroding of principles and moral virtue by our president and those surrounding him in the White House. Equally as disappointing is the deafening silence from the majority in […]

Takin’ It To The Streets

You don’t know me but I’m your brother; I was raised here in this living hell. You don’t know my kind in your world. Fairly soon the time will tell. You – telling me the things you’re gonna do for me. I ain’t blind and I don’t like what I think I see. Takin’ it […]

Right to Life

Who cares if we live or die as long we’re no longer in the womb.   Seniors and the poor face higher costs and less coverage; babies born sick get none. Where has compassion gone? Is this still my country?   People in the top 1% of wealth get […]

Health Care

It’s rare that I write a wholly political post. And frankly, I wish this topic didn’t even enter the realm of politics. Unfortunately, it does because of statements like former Republican Representative and radio talk show host Joe Walsh’s tweet in response to Jimmy Kimmel’s1 recent story about his newborn son’s heart condition: “Sorry Jimmy […]

Freedom and Grace

Vladimir Kara-Murza is vice-chairman of Open Russia, an international Russian pro-democracy movement. He was poisoned twice by Russian operatives, in 2015 and again in February of 2017. Both times he fell into a coma and suffered multiple organ failure, but survived both attempts to kill him. Mikail Kordorkovsky, head of Russia’s largest oil company called […]

Indignant at Injustice

God is a fair judge, a God who is angered by injustice every day. (Psalm 7:11, GW) This same verse is written in several Bible versions this way: God is a righteous judge, and a God who has indignation every day. Why would God be indignant? Because we sin or because He sees injustice? Why […]
