How Quitting Church Brought Me Closer To Christ.

In the beginning of Paul’s work in the ministry he found himself in the Arabian Desert for 3 years. Three Years… Sometimes we all need to get away and hear from God directly!

 

I know it may seem and even sound counter intuitive, but believe it or it not its true. Taking a step back from what was traditional, and from what was accepted as a norm actually brought me closer to the thing that was most important.

An Angel speaks (and someone listens)

Ever wonder what an angel’s appearance might be like? Ever been curious how they come down to earth? What, I wonder is the sound of their voice? Angels are strange to describe, and all sorts of interpretations have been crafted in word and paint and wood and stone and clay. None is accurate, nor inaccurate, prove or disprove an angels existence, yet they do exist and make themselves known from time to time. They are present more than people ever admit. They are the most highs messenger and message. Heavenly.

I Believe in the Sun, Part II: The Friend

I believe in the sun even when it is not shining;
I believe in love even when feeling it not;
I believe in God even when he is silent.

The Night before...

THE NIGHT BEFORE JESUS CAME
Twas the night before Jesus Came and all through the house
Not a creature was praying, not one in the house.
Their Bibles were laid on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

Milestone

Happy Saturday! Good afternoon blog friends!  I’m really tired today.  I was in the city on Monday, didn’t sleep well that night because I wasn’t in my own bed and arrived home about 12:15am Wednesday morning and I feel like I have been running every since.  This morning I got up at 7:30 to get ready and attend the Women of Faith breakfast at our local Anglican church here in Cobourg!

The Problem With Pain

I hate pain. I hate seeing people in pain. I hate causing pain. I hate pain. Many of us use it as a way to remove God from reality. It fuels the flame of doubt and sometimes undermines the believer’s faith. I know I have a few times.

C.S. Lewis has a book titled The Problem with Pain and it has helped me understand this at least a little bit. Lewis, like all of us, was no stranger to pain. His mother dies at a young age and then his father abandoned him soon after. He grew up around war and was rejected by friends. He was married but lost his wife 4 years later to kidney failure.

Across two Marches

I was reminded this week that the blog has been live for one year. What an eventful year we have had. Thank you for following along. To those who have stopped me at church or other places to mention a post, I really appreciate the encouragement.

I want to use the occasion to review what has happened here. Let’s take a look at some stats and popular posts.
