The Other Side

Have you ever given any thought to what takes place during the moment/s following a horrible mass murder, such as the painful atrocity that just took place at the Pulse Night Club in Orlando, Florida? I think about it a lot; hasn’t everybody? I recall an unusual dream I had that was re-occurring for a …

Favor?

Besides declaring he, Jesus, does not know everything, thereby dismissing the saying that, “Jesus is the answer,” Jesus also says he is not all powerful. We can say that Jesus’ teachings, when understood, may help us understand the answer, or help us ask our questions in a way that triggers an answer. This is one …

Hi All

In the midst of the sadness, and even out of the horror of the mass shooting(s) I can see something new. That something new is the change I see in people’s hearts that have generally been opposed to, or suspicious of others, whose sexual orientation is not their own. The change I see may be …

The Resurrection of Jesus

The resurrection of Jesus, for those who believe in it, is not denied. Throughout the Christian tradition adherents think of resurrection as proof of God’s love for humankind. What is not agreed on among believers is in what form, physical, spiritual, or simply as a powerful memory, Jesus was resurrected. The question that arises then …

Who Is More Sacred?

What is taken for granted in this writing is that terrorist ideology originates first and foremost over control of oil, opiates, weapons and nuclear power, i.e., power and greed. Terrorism is the vile and evil child of human inequity and injustice which in turn give rise to fear and hate. Religious traditions, because of the …

Life and Death: Knowing and Not Knowing (Mythologically Speaking)

How do we know anything? Think about it for a minute. Now think about all of the things we have discovered about the universe and our place in it in just the last century, or since, E=MC². Almost everything we thought we knew before this breakthrough has changed and has even been found to be …
