Truth

Truth is a shape sorter

There is a certain way the world is, whether we like it or not. I think of a shape sorter for example. There are certain places where things fit and certain places where they don’t fit. A square is a square and goes in a square hole, not in a triangle hole.[1] We could imagine […]

The End is Near

The End is Near

The end is near. That is the case whether or not it is our individual end or the end of all things. Whichever, the reality is, time is precious and it is fleeting. That is one of the reasons why it is precious. We’re so quick to recall that money is precious, and so it […]

Societal Analysis

It’s very interesting and perplexing to me that as a society we want and we are begging for and demanding what is good. We are acknowledging that things are very wrong in society. That seems to be the case no matter where you are politically, whatever side you find yourself on. We acknowledge there’s a […]

There was and never will be a meaningless moment.

“If we knew a millionth of the magnitude of our lives we’d be moved to wonder and crippled by the significance of it all. Our lives and our every action have significance because this world and this life is not all there is.”

Unrest and Our Rest

I have friends that are cops.  I have friends that are black.  I have friends that think COVID-19 is a hoax and friends that I couldn’t coax out of their house if I tried. Friends, we are in a time of unrest; economic, social, political, and physical.  I’m not trying to be dour or dark.  […]

C. S. Lewis on Longing

Introduction You can trace the theme of longing through most of Lewis’ writings. In some places, it is explicit in other places it is implicit. For example, Perelandra does not so much make an argument as much as make you desire and long to experience something of what Lewis wrote. When reading some of Lewis, […]

Statistics and Comfort in Calamity

However, it is too early to say. The percentage will be bigger or smaller depending on various factors (such as the […]

Ash Wednesday

It is when we weep and howl in the agonies of distress that our rescue is all the more rejoiced in. When we see the contrast of our mourning turned into dancing and our ashes replaced with a crown, it gives us a picture of where we came from and what we deserve and what […]

Falling like the Rain

I woke to the sound of rain drenching everything in its path and my daughters quiet voice asking if the dog can still go out to use the restroom. “Yes, please take the dog out!” was my urgent reply. I have always loved the rain. The sound it creates as it slaps the ground, rushing […]

Set Us Free

Paradise, polluted and poisoned. Our resounding plea: “Set us free.” We are writhing and reeling from the Fall. Our affections wander and wane, our struggles remain. O’ Lord set us free. We fettered our shackles, we tossed the key. But O’ Messiah, set us free.
