For The Exposure and the Business of Writing

I posted an article on my Facebook wall that caused a minor stir. The article entitled “Wil Wheaton and Why I Won’t Write for Huffington Post Anymore” was posted by a writer no longer willing to write for the exposure. He had been sending his articles to the Huffington Post without pay. He made the […]

Coming Out of The Dark

For the last few weeks, I have been fairly dark on social media on all fronts, especially with Jesus’ Outsider and Freedom Church. There have been a lot of things happening in our lives and the Lord has been speaking to us about serious changes that we are being called to make. There are two […]

Chaos! And The Art of Finding Truth in The Mess

I write a lot of blogs. There’s one for Freedom Church, another for Jesus’ Outsider, and another for Deep Mystery. I’ve shut down two more that just aren’t worth keeping. The problem is, there are some things I want to write and share that don’t pertain to any of the others I write. It’s just […]
