Let’s talk about this.

My heart breaks for Florida, and for all of the lives lost. My heart breaks for the young man who felt the need to do what he did, and for the help he didn't receive. And my heart breaks for every single person who is trying to make this a political issue. Let the families…Read more Let’s talk about this.

Not Today Satan.

Where do I begin? A lot has been going on, in terms of my spiritual journey.  I'm being challenged.  I'm being forced to face the tension between comfort and growth.  And I'm getting frustrated.

Today was probably my first real opportunity to engage with Islam, apart from reading…Read more A Dialog with Islam

But did you catch that? My professor is challenging my beliefs.  She…Read more A Christian Reflection
