Real Authenticity

Sometimes I think we get so deep into the fog that we can’t see, or maybe even refuse to see our problems. We lie to ourselves, saying that we are okay so that we don’t have to confront the pain we’ve concealed so well for so long.

The Irony of Christmas

  During my high school years, I spent a majority of my after school working hours (and summers as well) […]

Strength in Weakness

You probably haven’t ever been whipped or imprisoned for your faith. But we all share in weaknesses.

What Can I Do?

"...you quickly realize what happens is these people were being rascals and didn’t listen to a lot of what Jesus said."

At Our Worst
