The Lutheran seminarian insisted that this symbolically represented the precedence of the spirit over the human tendency to emphasize ...Read Blog »

Do you think that doesn't affect someone? If only we had this or that, then we would be happier. We are so pressurised into thinking in certain ways. That ...Read Blog »

Many gifts are naturally given to us right at birth; some times we don't see it for years down the road. I discovered one of mine, that being an artist, ...Read Blog »
