Life Is Happening Here

Life Is Happening Here

Surprised by Joy

Surprised by Joy
It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. And, you know what? That’s a really good thing. Writing has been a light in the tunnel, a path through the storm, these past 18 months.  It is putting...

“I Wouldn’t Do It, But I Wou...

“I wouldn’t do it, but I wouldn’t say that it’s wrong”. It’s a sentiment I keep hearing, everywhere. Certainly from non-Christians, but, increasingly, from the Christian community as well. And the...
My New Year’s Resolution

My New Year’s Resolution

The Season of Joy and Living in Egypt

The Season of Joy and Living in Egypt

Thanksgiving for the Awful

Thanksgiving for the Awful

Laugh and Live? or Cry and Die?

Laugh and Live? or Cry and Die?

Have you ever gotten to the place where you wish you could just check out of this life, just be done with it all – and go on home to Jesus? Yeah, I’ve felt that a lot, since Dominic. And apparently,...
My Real Citizenship

My Real Citizenship

So, there was this election, recently, in Virginia. And there is a possibility that I got just a wee bit involved in it. Like, posting political commentary non-stop on Facebook (not that anyone noticed), going...

On Being a Terrible Waiter. Or Hoper?

On Being a Terrible Waiter. Or Hoper?

I am a terrible waiter. Not waiter as in food server (although I’d stink at that too), but waiter as in not getting what you want right now. Waiting seems to imply inactivity, and, yeah, I fall just a...
