A weekend a little over a month ago was amazing. All of my family was there. My nephew, my niece, brothers, sisters, parents, and pets. The last time we will be together for two years. And it was funny watching us all tell stories, ask questions, giggle, snack, and retreat into occasional moments of introversion. I […]Read more "family conversation"
There was a time in my life that I used to get up at 5:45, skate through the freezing cold of Richardson, start work at 6am, work till 12Pm, return home to eat dim sims, play a computer game for most of the day, hang out with my house mates and then continue to play […]Read more "God, I just pooped myself.

Walking up the dark stairs, not really knowing what i was walking into, the thought occurred to me, a closed-for-the-day pub is a perfect third place to start a church. Its not church, its not someone’s home, but it’s focused, its on purpose. I arrived at the top of the stairs without a friend in […]Read more "Imagine if we never judged."
We walked into an old school, two story house in the middle of a neighbourhood a little bit out of the centre of Kyiv, Ukraine. Inside we sat down to an amazing soup lunch served by two ladies, both with Autistic children. We were slowly informed by our translator that this was one of the […]Read more "Ukraine and a fight for dignity."

Growing up in a scene that slowly died because of alcoholism and a firm commitment to hate children i became fascinated with a house show culture that began to spring up in Canberra. Bands ceased to have places to play, so […]Read more "House Shows Shows Households How to Hold Up"

What about the line Christ says – Love one another as you love yourself? I’ve always thought, to what extent? […]Read more "How the trinity will change the world."
“And the call of action should be to END the PRIVATE CONTROL over our MONEY system. DEMAND PUBLICLY OWNED, NOT-FOR-PROFIT, STATE RUN BANKS IN EVERY STATE” I walked into this group of the strangest people ever. At 14, I have a feeling I was the youngest there. The eldest could’ve been in his sixties. He […]Read more "#occupythekingdom"
I was wearing a bow tie. My favourite wedding shirt, borrowed pants and shoes (that i would later repair with sticky tape). I had the honour of walking an amazingly beautiful woman down that aisle, to hand her to my handsome best friend. I’m awkward at the best of times and earlier that morning i […]Read more "Becoming the best wife: And the means to an end."
The Kingdom of God is like a boat that doesn’t sail. On the boat are 100 people, all from different nations and cultures. Speaking different languages, wearing different clothes. But singing the same song. Praying the same prayers. Loving and serving http://wp.me/p1utPe-6P. We went on outreach to Kyiv, Ukraine. And were told that the base […]Read more "Inter Praise."
The kingdom of Heaven is like a village that stays just above the poverty line by producing almost pure alcohol from sugar cane. With the proceeds the village people clothe and educate their children (at least a little) and put food on the table. As a part of a land locked country with on the […]Read more "A cross road.
