I don’t consider myself in any way an authority on the subject of Christian fasting, nor am I, quite frankly, an authority on the matters of God. But as I learn and deepen my faith, I encounter things that I can’t help but comment on. So I advise anyone reading this to take it asContinue reading “On Christian Fasting”
Note: This essay is something I wrote for one of my last classes before I graduate this May. I certainly do not claim to be an expert, but the Trinity is so ecstatically beautiful–I can’t help myself. I hope this brings glory to God. To anyone who reads–if the Trinity is something you find difficultContinue reading “On The Triune God”
One simple fact: we are going to die. I don’t mean to be frightening, but the truth is, life on this earth is merely a flash of light and, presto!, no longer do you exist here. I am no stranger to Death. Nor have I historically feared it. I have tried to effect it twice,Continue reading “Surprised by Joy: My Spiritual Journey Thus Far”
I feel strange that in all the books by C.S. Lewis that I have read from this past semester up until now that A Grief Observed is the first book I am writing about. Besides A Grief Observed, I read The Screwtape Letters, The Abolition of Man, Mere Christianity, and The Great Divorce. One orContinue reading “Thoughts on A Grief Observed”
Hi all, so I said recently that I would be posting book reviews. I promised a book review to a Canadian author named Holly Dickson-Ramos a long while ago who had written Strong Spirit, a devotional for women struggling with chronic illness.

The last month or so has been somewhat more busy, but in the main, my five-year old laptop made blogging virtually impossible. That issue has been remedied, however, and now I’m back in business. So IContinue reading “I’m Back (and what to expect)”

But I’ve already made a YouTube video of it a while back and now I am making it accessible on my blog. I have never done aContinue reading “Open Discussion About Depression and Suicide”
What value is the study of history for the Church universal? What also is the value of doctrine? In an age where the Church, whether Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic, et cetera, seems mired in too much doctrine and too little Scripture, would it not be better for the Christian community to simply reject all elseContinue reading “On the Study of Doctrine and History”
How one man’s love for Christ revived the Church’s study of the original text of Scripture Who was Desiderius Erasmus? I began Made by a Carpenter based upon a quote from this man, who said, “By a Carpenter mankind was made, and only by that Carpenter can mankind be remade.” Most of my readers areContinue reading “Desiderius Erasmus and the Revival of Christian Scholarship”
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ~1 Corinthians 12:9 Disruption. Abnormality. Unknowns. New normal. Sounds like the coronavirus pandemic, doesn’t it? And yet, that’s not what I’m referring to. Long before the pandemic, these terms described people like me: disabled people. The ones who have known and livedContinue reading “Crafted In Imperfection”
