I have been struggling lately with rampant nationalism in the church. Maybe it's just me, but I feel more than a little nauseous when I see images of the United States flag draped over the cross, and patriotic worship services make me want to pull my hair out. I am convinced that the devil should … Continue reading Musings on Patriotism and Idolatry
Have you seen Disney's Moana? It's the story of a strong young woman (who will one day be the chief of her people!) who sets out on a journey to restore balance to the world by returning the stolen heart of the goddess Te Fiti.

Finding a church home has been a major contributor to my overall happiness and contentment. I was drifting spiritually, and it was affecting … Continue reading Gratitude Sunday
