Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! 


When I was a senior in high school my brave high school English teacher taught a unit on “The ineffable experience.” I say he was brave because I personally can’t imagine trying to bring up that word, let alone that concept, let alone teach anything meaningful about it, in a room full of high schoolContinue reading “Ineffable”

How Much Time?

How much time do you spend reading the Bible? For pretty much the past year, when I first decided – before I became a Christian – that I needed to read the Gospels to learn more about Christians’ relationship with God, I’ve been spending about 2 hours/day reading and studying the Bible. It’s a hugeContinue reading “How Much Time?”

Moses and the Promised Land

Two days ago the gifted Christian missionary and blogger, Jennifer Arimborgo, wrote an amazing article titled, “Moses DID Get into the Promised Land!” That sent more than a few of her hundreds of followers reaching for our Bibles (always a Good Thing!). Jennifer points to Matthew 17: “And after six days Jesus took with him Peter andContinue reading “Moses and the Promised Land”

She came to him and asked,Continue reading “God Before Housework”

The prize was for their 2012 development of the CRISPR-Cas9Continue reading “Genetic Scissors”

An Awesome Thing

9 days ago I wrote, “I find myself missing the pure awe and wonderment that once was the totality of my relationship with God […] I need to reclaim more of that early joy and completely innocent awe.  “As always, I am praying for His guidance. I know because I have personally experienced it manyContinue reading “An Awesome Thing”
