    Summer in Virginia

    Posted on by

    Summer in Virginia makes anybody who’s not from Virginia tell you stories about a “dry heat”. “It’s a dry heat,” they explain with a wave of their hand as they regale you with tales of Colorado, or Arizona, or that one time in Nevada. “It doesn’t feel hot like it does here.” After his first… Read more »

    Prophecies & Parables: Clarity in Confusion

    Posted on by

    Deep truths in Christian faith often come packaged in the form of paradox. We serve a God who is omnipotent yet personal, a God as perfect in love as He is in wrath. Giving does not deplete us, rather fills us so that we have more to give. Our slavery to righteousness sets us free. We are to… Read more »

    North Africa Testimonies: Samuel

    Posted on by

    We spent a week in North Africa. The two days when we hosted art gallery receptions went by in a blur. We framed pieces, put up walls, printed flyers and statements, arranged furniture, and prepared to speak with hundreds of people. The real beauty of preparing for the gallery, though, was not anything we accomplished…. Read more »

    A Different Jesus

    Posted on by

    Cameron and I just got back from our honeymoon a couple days ago. It was an amazing trip to Barcelona, Rome, and Paris. We were both in awe of these places we had heard of and never been, these cities that are full of history, culture, great food, and legendary art. Throughout the three cities,… Read more »

    Your Clothing Is Not Armor & Modesty Will Not Keep You Safe

    Posted on by

    As a result of #MeToo hashtags, big names resigning, allegations flying, and brave individuals coming forward, we have had to scrutinize who we glorify, what they’re allowed to get away with, and what our standard for behavior really is in America. In the midst of change, discussion, and reflection, I’ve seen a particular argument pop… Read more »

    The Woman Who Killed A Would-Be King

    Posted on by

    I’ve read through 1 and 2 Samuel my fair share of times. Apart from reading it on my own, really who has been to church and not heard about the ascension of Saul, his downward spiral, and King David’s rise to power? Those stories are important and, if you go to church in America, inescapable…. Read more »

    The Hydroelectric Plant

    Posted on by

    Today’s post continues my meandering series digging through old photos and sharing some that have good memories, or interesting subjects. These photos, all at the bottom of the post, are from the hydroelectric plant at Belle Isle. Seven years ago, I saw this building for the first time. It’s mostly obscured by trees, a little… Read more »

    The Casual & The Omnipotent

    Posted on by

      This post starts with a good chunk of text from the bible and everything I have to say relates to that excerpt, so please do read it through. This takes place after Jesus’ death and resurrection. A handful of disciples had gone fishing together and Jesus appeared to them. They ate breakfast together by… Read more »
