Suffering’s Gift

Enter Every Moment as If You Chose It

Enter every moment as if you chose it.  I remember years ago hearing an ER doc turned environmentalist speak about how observing the dramatic increase in cancer, autoimmune diseases, and more led him to research why, and conclude: We've been killing the earth with our pollutants, deforestation, pouring/placing toxins into the ocean, strip mining, etc., and in … Continue reading Enter Every Moment as If You Chose It

The Politics of Christianity

As fear of COVID-19 and the divisiveness of a presidential election sweep across America, I'm reminded how very political Jesus was in pretty UN-American ways.  At a minimum, I believe the Christ invites people of any, or no, religion to a new, incredible way of being human.  One marked by togetherness, interdependence, caring for all, … Continue reading The Politics of Christianity
