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: Story

This time let’s do something different. Take a moment. Settle yourself. Settle your soul. Sit back in your seat. Breathe. Be conscious of your breathing. Breathe deeply. Breathe in the good, breathe out the bad. Breathe in to the count of 4. Hold for 4. Breathe out to the count of 4. Hold for 4.…

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: Grinding

Recently my car has been making a grinding sound from the rear wheels. I know it’s not healthy for my vehicle to continue to drive like that, as it may be the brakes rusting over. My car is old. Well 12 years old, but in car years that’s almost an eternity. I’m going to get…

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: Sin

Speaking of definitions, let’s go back to the start. What makes Christians, Christians? For many the ideas of St. Paul speak to this in the book of Romans, especially the 3rd chapter. In it, there is that phrase that most will repeat out of context “For all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory…

Honest Faith: Rebel Jesus

If you’ve been following my blog recently you know that I’ve been plagued by a question, “Do you not want to be a Christian anymore?”. I guess that’s what the Honest Faith series has been all about. Trying to find my way back to something resembling belief in a Divine being. As with any transition…

Trivializing the Divine

For the longest time, I was annoyed by people posting pictures or verses that are supposed to represent God or their faith. I thought maybe it’s just because it was these people’s way of proselytizing on facebook or some other thing. Then I remembered that I am also horribly annoyed by most “christian” book stores. So…

Learning to Love Pt. 1: Letting Go

“To change the world start with one step However small the first step is hardest of all” — Dave Matthews Band “Just after daybreak, Jesus stood on the beach; but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, “Children, you have no fish, have you?” They answered him, “No.” He…
