Death of Pet (Nathan encounters mortality/separation, video) 1

Here is another (short) installment in exploring the theology of disability and the spiritual growth/development of my autistic son, Nathan (age 11) who has recently claimed that he doesn’t not believe in God (see previous posts). Part of the spiritual formation process involves engagement with mortality; and so it does for Nathan too. The two […]

God: “The Unbelievable Story” (1st Interview with Nathan) 8

Video’s BACK STORY: To get an idea of who Nathan is, and how he thinks (a VERY rough estimation) I’ll be posting some video of interviews with him on his thoughts about God, spiritual things, love, truth, Scripture, Christianity, and things that pertain to this delving into his spiritual formation and understanding. Nathan caught the […]


The Generosity Plexus 3

    Our ability to give hinges on our idea of how the world is, does it not? If we believe we must hold tightly to what we have, our ability to receive will also be hindered. If we perceive others, God, or even life in general to be sparse in goodness and blessings, we […]

What Laws did Christ Fulfill? (Or, should we follow ancient Hebrew laws?) 6

Have you ever heard someone say, “The Bible says you can’t get a tattoo.” or “God’s law says women shouldn’t dress like men,” or made some truth statement about Christian conduct based on The 10 Commandments, or one of the laws from Leviticus or Deuteronomy? Can New Testament Christians (most of us reading this) spurn […]

Thou Shalt Not

Leaders & Mind Control 1

The thought crossed my mind that some people could see me naked Saturday, if there is The Rapture. So, really that’d be judgment Day for sure. I should have lost more weight. It saddens me that some have sold all their things because of believing Harold Camping. I sort of wish he would get beamed […]
