Religious Statues in Dreams

Ever since a dream I had of Michael the Archangel back in October 2015, I’ve had a recurring dream theme of seeing religious statues.

This morning, Trump took to Twitter and released a series of tweets declaring that, after discussing the matter with military experts, … Continue reading Trump’s Hypocrisy Towards the LGBTQ Community

The Reminder of God’s Healing Ability in Psalms 30:2

“Oh LORD my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.” (Psalms 30:2) I’m not sure if the sudden increase in cloudy, dreary weather has been the culprit, or the stress of my job has wiped me out more than I initially realized, but I was feeling really empty and drained … Continue reading The Reminder of God’s Healing Ability in Psalms 30:2

Dream Visitations from Deceased Individuals

Over the past few years, I’ve occasionally had a few dreams where somebody recently deceased appears, creating a vivid dream that becomes hard to forget.

I have a strong affinity for music that helps me get through the random bouts of loneliness that catch me off guard every now and then.

Laura Palmer’s Angel: a Cinematic Representation of God’s Faithfulness

Note: If you haven’t watched the original Twin Peaks 1990-91 series and/or Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, please be aware that this post will contain a few spoilers.

The Views of Eugene Peterson and the Divide in the Church

When I first read about Eugene Peterson’s apparent change of heart on the matter of same-sex marriage, I was surprised and undoubtedly pleased. For a well-known figure such as Peterson to make that move could only have helped push forward in the struggle of LGBTQ people to be fully accepted in churches. And so, like … Continue reading The Views of Eugene Peterson and the Divide in the Church
