Finding "Faith" outside the walls of a church

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…

Screaming Into the Void

Sometimes, it all feels like too much. I didn’t add the Honest Faith tag to this blog post because at the moment, I’m not exactly sure how this relates to my journey of rediscovering faith. I’m overwhelmed, saddened, and at a loss. I took this picture today of this saint in a stained glass window.…

Enough is Enough

Disclaimer: I am tired. It’s been a very long week, and I feel like I have worn through all of my diplomacy. I apologize if what I’m about to say seems harsh to anyone. I certainly don’t mean to offend, but rather spur to action. If you are offended (this is something that I’ve been…

The Continuing Adventures of Missing the Point

I know I often write about faith and culture, about the┬ádichotomy┬áthat does not exist between them; despite the constant rhetoric from the western church that it does. I was sorting through my I-tunes library this morning in an attempt to get more of my good music that I haven’t listened to in a while onto…

Injustice, Greed, and Corruption

As I sit here to write this post, I have this incredible urge to do something. This week a rather uninformed public media figure decided to make a really stupid statement about social justice and the Church. This statement equated the idea of social justice with the common western media stereotype of evil. This person…
