Schrodinger’s Cat, the Limits of the Possible, and Hope for Eternity

Thus, the only time we make the wrong decision is when we’re not thinking far enough ahead. In an infinity, we have both an infinite amount of future time to consider, but also an infinite amount of time to learn to think farther ahead.

Love in the Hard Times: Forth They Went Together

You know that feeling you get when you realize how dumb you were for having written something or someone off? Like when you try a food as an adult that you tried once and hated when you were three and you think, “Dang, I’ve been an idiot my whole life.”…

Love in the Hard Times: The Temple

Hello, friends! It’s been quite a while since I’ve written. The past several months have run the gamut of grief and joy for me, and as my internal gauge bounced back and forth from one end to the other, it was difficult to have a sense of where exactly my…

The Theology of Convenience (Part 2)

One of the most uncomfortable conversations of my life took place in a dentist’s chair. (Yes, yes, I know…) My dentist was a woman in her early 30s. I was already be-bibbed, X-rayed, and reclined to a nauseating angle when she suddenly shooed all the assistants and hygienists out and…

Anything that looks or, in this case, streams like a non-denominational…

Nicaea Is Enough: A Response

In 2017 a professor from the university I attended wrote a blog post titled “Is Nicaea Enough?” I’ve been thinking about that subject a lot recently. Nicaea is, in fact, enough. Here’s my take on it. But First I Want To Say… Too often “Christians’ ‘ view other “Christians’ ‘…

The Redemptive Work of Shusaku Endō’s Silence

Hilariously, I was mostly through a 20oz cup of what I thought was decaf coffee at 8:00pm, when I realized I had gotten distracted while pouring said coffee and had, in fact, gotten full-caf. That was when I knew tonight was the night I would finally buckle down and complete…
