Finding "Faith" outside the walls of a church

The Honest Faith: Christianity 2.NO

I want to take a moment to talk about something I’m finding to be an alarming trend. This has a little to do with things I brought up 2 weeks ago with the unity, should have used the word harmony instead, post on kindness. Then there was last week when I talked about how to…

The Honest Faith: Kill Em’ With Kindness

This past week, I again submitted a controversial question to the Christian subreddit page. I didn’t think it would have been controversial, but apparently it is. The question was this “Despite all of our differences and the things that deeply divide us, do you think that the Church can ever one day be united and…

The Honest Faith: Goals

It’s a new year and like many people I’m sure you have new years broken promises to make, I’m sorry I mean resolutions. Let’s be honest with ourselves. Most resolutions get broken within the first month of making them to ourselves. Life gets in the way. We get back into our old routines and we…

The Honest Faith: A Father’s Love

Putting aside the historical validity of the birth narrative from Matthew and Luke. One of the things that I have always wondered about is Joseph’s story. I really enjoyed the one Christmas song from Michael Card “Joseph’s Song” for many years. I’ve even written monologue pieces that featured this song. It is also a song…

The Honest Faith: Join the Resistance

I’ve been focusing a lot on the problems recently. I haven’t provided a lot of answers, well, aside from my 95 theses. I think we are well aware of the problems, however. Things are getting worse, yes, but as a wise person once said, “It’s always darkest before the dawn.” The outlook for our American…

The Honest Faith: 95 Theses for a Modern Church

I’ve been doing a lot of listening lately to many different voices and many traditions of faith. I’ve noticed a lot. I’ve found a lot and learned a lot. I’ve listened to a lot of Protestant voices, Catholic voices, and Orthodox voices. There is a resounding chord that is played across those voices. There is…

The Honest Faith: UnChristian

When I was little my great-grandfather, who I called Bop, had a car that talked. It wasn’t anything fancy, it would just tell you often, “The door is ajar, The door is ajar.” His favorite joke was to ask us kids, “When is a door not a door?” Since we were kids we didn’t know…

The Honest Faith: Why Don’t You Care?

::Disclaimer:: I am not addressing this to anyone in particular. I do this because we are all guilty. I don’t aim to make anyone feel bad or guilty either, we have enough voices doing that. I write this to maybe, just maybe, open your eyes to a new perspective. As always I ask that you…

The Honest Faith: Shut Up and Get to Work

Remember how I said that I would probably not write any more controversial posts a while ago, yeah, I think I lied. The thing is when you stand for what is right or kneel for what is right, there will always be controversy. I have made a new friend recently. This was through the journey…
