A SERVANTS LISTENING HEART

When we reflect on what it means to be born again, or what King David would’ve called being renewed in Spirit, it helps to have a story we can relate to. Luckily, the person who wrote the above verse happens to be one of the most enigmatic characters in the Hebrew Scriptures. That means we […]

Why It’s Important To Plant Seeds

I know it’s easy for us to seek quick fixes nowadays. We literally have instant everything delivered to our doorsteps within 25 hours. Convenience stores at every corner stocked with all our favorite goodies. Instant gratification is the catchphrase of our era. While our society is, in many ways, a marvelous achievement a lot of […]

HOW TO HUMAN WITH LOVE

A lot can be said about the spiritual path. We could intellectualize until we’re blue in the face or we can follow a simple commandment: live in love. Everything else is just window dressings.

What that really means is I’m old enough to remember pay phones, designated smoking areas indoors, Saturday morning cartoons and McGruff the crime fighting dog taking a bite out of crime. That’s right, the concept of my brain sizzling over easy on drugs is forever […]

COMIC BOOK COUNSELLING

LIES I TELL OTHERS Deadpool has always struck a chord with me. I found this slightly psychotic antihero to be a breath of fresh air amongst the Marvel Universes usual band of heros and villians.
