WWYD: What Would You Do?

I was in high school when WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?) started. I vaguely remember kids running around with those plastic bracelets. I think by now we can pretty well predict WWJD. The extrapolation is not difficult. Read the Sermon on the Mount. Hell spend a couple of days and read the gospels. Your predictive…

Does God Speak? Not Where I Expected

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” – Psalms 1: 1-2 Struggling with spirituality?…

Are you afraid of the Big Bad Bolz-Weber?

Social media is a blessing and a curse. The part that is so difficult is the encounter with hate that is ever present when you decide to be a part of an online community. Anonymous hatred is infectious. It was with great delight that I happened upon this statement from Nadia Bolz-Weber, and it is…

Back to Joy

It is funny that no matter how hard we try, our natural inclination is toward entropy and disorder. Quite immediately, my “joyful” blog….or my search for “joyful” blog…degenerated into a platform to unleash every rant in my head. In theory, and to be fair, this did spell more joy in my real world. The availability…

Outreach? Does everything really count?

Of course, I only blog when I get really feisty and no matter how many times I speak a truth, it fails to resonate with anyone or anything. If you have been to any Christian church, the word of every hour is “outreach.” In my rudimentary investigation of “outreach” I googled the definition and got…

Gutenberg and A Citation Lesson

Okay…so the funniest thing on earth would be that I am going to write and post this essay that I wrote for a class, online and then when I sit down to talk to my professor about it, he will run one of those internet searches and say that now he thinks I lifted the…

Full Moon In Pisces Ritual – Yes Its Tomorrow

So I am trying to construct a full moon ritual, knowing my participants, I am even more loony. One, likely will be hesitant to participate fully, the other will joyously enjoy as much as I can volley. The best course of action is probably to do what I do & let my silly participants work…

How the Mormon Church “Ruined” Me….(wink, wink)

Ok…so if you thought this was the post where I was going to rail against growing up Mormon, you are wrong. But how can you say you feel ruined by the Mormon church and this isn’t a post against Mormonism? Well, fool, because in this instance, it is the opposite. When I say I was…

Knock knock, Judgey McJudger Here

Judgey McJudger is a fictitious friend who we often see about in the world. You know the person. My father would call him or her a pickle-puss. They are people who, instead of looking out at the world with a smile and love, they approach the world with a critical eye. Lately, the concept of…
