Those Who Set Fires

What do we call someone who sets something ablaze with no care for what happens when the fire takes hold? They are arsonists.  Arsonists are criminals and are hunted and prosecuted as such.  The problem though is what do we do with social arsonists, who set fires in our culture and in their fan base… Continue reading Those Who Set Fires

I Won’t Give In To Fear

Say it with me now, I won’t give in to fear.  Doesn’t that feel good? Gets the blood moving.  Gets the spirits up.  HALLELUJAH! The world is a scary place and it is full of rabble-rousers who want nothing more than to weaponize ignorance and fear for their own gain. They want to stoke fear… Continue reading I Won’t Give In To Fear

We Already Know Where We’re Going

Sometimes you head somewhere, thinking you are just out for a drive when deep down you already have a destination in mind. We head out in our vehicle and we just let the wind rush through the windows, we turn up the tunes, and we zone out and just sorta let the road unfold before… Continue reading We Already Know Where We’re Going

Deny, deny, deny

I am led to wonder lately how it is we can present ourselves as the leaders of the ‘free’ world when we live in such denial. Now, each of us lives in personal denial of one thing or another - we really do need to exercise, we really do need to find a  new job,… Continue reading Deny, deny, deny

False Idols

There is something chilling about a political party that pretends to be very pious and devout to the Christian faith following a false idol. How many times have we heard the lectures that the Antichrist is coming and that they are among us now? How many times have we heard religious leaders more interested in… Continue reading False Idols

Getting What We Want

We are at a point in history where I feel like we’re going to get what we’ve been asking for and very few of us will be happy about it. It startles me, really, that we endured four years with the worst, and most dangerous President in American history and have the scars to show… Continue reading Getting What We Want

For Educational Purposes Only- blog

           When I look back at my school days, I can’t say I look back at them fondly. I wasn’t great in Kindergarten, finding myself and what it was like to be in school and around so many kids. I had been in a sort of preschool, but it wasn’t like it is today and… Continue reading For Educational Purposes Only- blog

Validation – blog

           Humans need validation. Whether we like it or not. As isolated as we may make ourselves, we want, we need to be seen. We need to recognize, even if just to see that we want to be alone. Humans are, even today, a social species that needs one another. I know that as much… Continue reading Validation – blog

The Hills We Die On

           I will never tell anyone I am the smartest person in any room I am in. I will never tell anyone I am better than them because odds are really great, I am not. And I am not going to act as if my beliefs should be the standard for what all others believe… Continue reading The Hills We Die On

Just What We Always Wanted

           You get the feeling that this old coal cart is speeding towards broken track? Sure, we might jump the gap and come out on the other side just fine and zoom off into the distance. Or we could tumble over into the abyss, never to be seen again. That feels like where we’re at,… Continue reading Just What We Always Wanted

The Things You Love Will Carry You Away

           We are all a product of our time. The culture, the economy, the media, the school systems, the politics, and the society itself help to mold us. So many things influence who we are and who we become that the notion that we are ‘our own person’ seems a bit silly. Sure, we make… Continue reading The Things You Love Will Carry You Away
