Dangerous Faith in a Safe Space World | God Talk: Nazareth

We had a great sermon this past Sunday. I never had the pleasure of listening to Pastor Raf, as he is affectionately called, preach, and it was surely a blessing. Yet, and a part of me trembles to utter that word, there was a piece in the beginning of his sermon that sent waves of […]

Revelations – None Are Righteous, No Not One

Repost from Facebook Notes September 11, 2015 So apparently my words yesterday that I thought might spark a firestorm, actually wound up making my husband chuckle. Let’s see if we can stay on a roll. As I always, I pray God will guide the words, and open the hearts of those who need them. I mentioned […]


Revelations – When I Cannot See

Repost from Facebook Notes August 13, 2015 I have often noticed over these last few years, sometimes I am blind.

More Than We Can Handle

“ The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.” Psalm 28:7 We often hear Christians say “God will never give you more than you can handle.” They mean well when they say this, trying to […]


Strength Within the Sorrow

“My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death,” he said to them…” Mark 14:34 We live in a world of happy Christians these days. We walk into church with our smiles on, we say “Great!” when asked how we are. We exude cheer at all times, sometimes to the point of mania. […]
