Dear Trump Supporters, Part II

Dear Trump Supporters, I am so, so angry at you. Like so angry I would like to stand on a pedestal and scream unkind things at you. Why?

A 2020 Lament

How did we get here? How do almost 50% of Americans think That any of what that man does is ok? In a world aching and scared, How do we praise his hate? How do we look at starving children And tell them, you can't live here, And I'm taking your mother away? Or stare... Continue Reading →

They listen, they cry out and ask Him, “Why... Continue Reading →

The Associate Pastor’s Tirade

Part I We barrelled into Church a motley crue, composed of one shoeless screaming to be shirtless, who wanted to run and climb. Hung from the other arm was one whose Only desire was to scream and run, but Who had cried out "I want Jesus" in the parking lot. I came for the Living... Continue Reading →
