What is it about death that kind of brings everything to a halt and forces you to deal with your own existential meaning and purpose? It seems to freeze any future of goals you may have had, and makes you … Continue reading A Death Observed | A Life Celebrated
I wrote about my own journey through deconstruction and leaving Church ministry last year. You can find that post here. Later on, I wrote a follow-up post titled “Faith Reconstructed“, where I tried to clear up some questions some of you had … Continue reading The Questioners’ Creed
When I was a kid, I was taught in church that doubt was bad. It wasn’t so much directly taught, but rather implied by the words and actions of those in leadership. Doubt was considered this thing you experience when … Continue reading Accepting A Life Of Doubt

For it is this reality that has caused such an urgency and importance on this matter. Continue reading Redefined By Human Equality

I thought I knew what church was like. But you don’t really know what Christians are like until you stop going to church. Continue reading Lost And Found: A Deconstruction Of Faith
I decided to write on the heels of my last post where I talked about some ways we can approach our lives on a daily basis where we can feel “ok” with ourselves and the world around us, I also … Continue reading God Wants Me To Be Happy
