Day 1389- What Does It Mean to Believe In Jesus?

Day 1389- What Does It Mean to Believe In Jesus?

Following up on my conversation with my buddy Bill about my faith and Jesus, Bill texted me and hoped our discussion about the “person of Jesus” was meaningful (to me).  Of course, it was meaningful, and I told Bill that. I also reminded him that I was intimately familiar with all of the doctrines he […]

Day 1387- Blinded By the Light

Day 1387- Blinded By the Light

Today was a good day. It was a balmy 60º in April. Gotta love that. My friend Bill and I went for a walk. We are opposites when it comes to politics. So, we usually avoid that topic. We met at an evangelical church back when I was an evangelical. He’s still attending the church […]

Day 1237- Imagine There’s No Religion

Day 1237- Imagine There’s No Religion

The further along I go on my spiritual journey, the more I find I have in common with atheists, and the less I see I have in common with religious people. My favorite pastor, regarding his sermons, is Roger Ray. I think he would describe himself as an agnostic. But, since he’s a person who […]

Day 1181- ‘Twas Grace That Taught My Heart To Fear

Day 1181- ‘Twas Grace That Taught My Heart To Fear

There is a line in the song Amazing Grace that goes ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved; As I’m thinking about my relationship with church this line presents itself to me. It was church that taught my heart to fear. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with church since […]

Day 1163- Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani

Day 1163- Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani

About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”) This morning as I’m listening to one of my podcasts for the day a spiritual teacher is talking about seeking absolute truth. Frankly, there was a lot of […]

Day 1044- Jesus/Isa/Issa/Yeshua

The other day I’m taking a walk with my former pastor religious buddy/unofficial counselor and he tells me he was praying for me at Easter and asks me what Easter meant to me this year.  Wow.  Interesting question.  I’m not sure he really wants to hear my answer.  Where do I begin?  He’s staunchly Christian, […]

Day 1041- Mediumship Demonstration- Kat Baillie

Helping Parents Heal is all about the continuation of life and the continuing bonds model of grief therapy.  Grief therapy used to be about accepting the fact your loved one is “dead” and moving on without them.  If you’re a religious person, perhaps you’d believe you’ll see them one day, “in the sweet by and […]

Day 1036- Is It OK To Go to Mediums?

Day 1036- Is It OK To Go to Mediums?

“‘Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.”- Leviticus 19:31 If you’ve talked to a fundamentalist Christian about mediumship you might have heard this verse.  Keep in mind Leviticus is the same group of books of the Bible (the Pentateuch) that […]
