Checkmate (pt. 6): Remember Who You Are

Let me tell you a story. Once, there was a poor man who committed a crime, and was sentenced to serve time in jail until he could pay a substantial fine. He knew that he was guilty of committing the crime and honestly felt sorry for doing the things he had done. He felt that …

Checkmate (pt. 5): Dig a Little Deeper

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com I'm going to be honest with you (I say that as if I am normally dishonest) This was not an easy blog post to write. It is not that the subject matter was exceedingly difficult to grasp or that it required an immense amount of detailed research, but this post …

Checkmate (pt.4):A Tangled Mind

One of my absolute favorite Disney movies is Tangled, the ultimate "damsel in distress" story. Besides the lifelike animation, catchy soundtrack, and lovable characters (Flynn Rider, am I right, ladies?), the movie has an engaging plot that is timeless (both because it is as old as the hills, and because it seems new every time). …

Selah: The Power of a Pause

Last week I shared a post about trends I have noticed in people's responses to the Corona virus, in conjunction with the quarantine that is being enforced in many countries, and one of the underlying assumptions that I found troubling (If you missed that post, you can check it out here). In that post I …

The Obligatory COVID-19 Post

*Disclaimer: I really didn't want to write a post about COVID-19, I promise you. In my mind, the last thing the world needed was another uninformed, idealistic college student spouting the same repetitive Christian messages that have been beaten over people's head's for the past few months. If I could have a penny for every …

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com Tonight as I sit and reflect on Easter weekend, with all it's moments of Joy and moments of solemn silence, I think of redemption. As I ponder the weight of the fact that I serve a God who leaves the ninety-nine to rescue each of us and deliver us out …
