Was is Das? Faith through Questions

Warning: My thoughts this week definitely show the “nerdy” side of this Journey to Find God I keep writing about! I’m really into these readings from the 1500’s – writings by early leaders of the Reformation. It is surprisingly relevant hundreds of years later. How amazing that we connect to people who lived so many years ago, in a different part of the world, stumbling through life and coping with many of the same questions we face today.

Have you ever felt afraid to question your belief? Maybe it’s fear that you will ask a stupid question and show your ignorance? Maybe you are afraid questions equal lack of belief? Through asking questions, we might appear vulnerable. Continue reading

Seeking Constant from Inside the Vortex

It was time to start writing – so I posed the question which I will occasionally throw out to my family. What should I write about this week?

Following the true light

I came across a quote somewhere this week. I wish I could remember where so I could give the author proper credit. Basically, this quote said that having the label of Christian does not indicate that the person is or even intends to be concerned about the well being of others. Yikes – harsh!! Yet, alarmingly, too often a true statement of what we encounter in the world… Continue reading
