Weeding Out Biases

It’s been a reoccurring thought throughout my life that I could have been born in a different location, to a different family, or part of a different culture. I still don’t know why I have been allowed to live a life with minor heartaches compared to others I know.

What I do know and came to realize this week is it’s not about avoiding being a part of the problem. Rather, as a believer and follower of Christ, I should be more concerned with being a part of the solution.

Details Matter

Details matter. They’re important. They bring joy to certain people who notice them. I usually notice the details.

He is not the Burger King

What do I think of God? Let’s just start off this second half of the year, and my first blog post of 2018 with a doozy of a question. Yeah, it’s a hard question, but I think a necessary one to ask periodically because it reveals a bit of my heart that I’ve been too…
