When i was in my early teenage years I began playing legit outdoor hockey, with an actual team, and an actual coach. We had practices, and were actually pushed to get better. I remember vividly my first training session. I hated it. We ran, and ran, and ran. And then as a team we ran […]Read more "Even when Dad’s pay check keeps us."
In the beginning of time God created little doors. They had the choice to be opened or closed. But if they decided to be closed then nothing could come in or go out. Currently I live in a room in Sweden that sometimes smells so strange. We have had three dudes living in here, and sometimes […]Read more "God’s open room."
Its been a while since I had a good rant about the trinity. Traditionally, the trinity symbol is a triune shape of similar proportions that speaks of each member of the trinity being the same, just pointing in a different direction. I find that all to be false. I feel like the triune symbol should […]Read more "Trinity Favourites."
So we ventured around this giant kitchen, ‘learning’ how to do everything and the amazing dutch kitchen manager, in his blunt dutch way explained something huge. – When I see something wrong I will point it out very bluntly, I’m not making a personal attack, you are not the problem, the problem is the problem […]Read more "You are not the problem."

One of the best sermons I’ve ever heard a relation of mine speak, was also one of the last ones he preached. He projected a picture of a rose on to a wall. It was an alright rose. But he made the point that an actual rose, the smell, the colour, the texture, the living plant…. was […]Read more "Our God is NOT a book."
I was walking down the street with a friend and her parents and they discussed the supermarket Aldi and their wares, but the strange part was that they pronounced it “ALL Dee”. As an Australian I have always pronounced it Aldi as “Al” in Al from Home Improvement. Almost “owl”. And we began the age […]Read more "Aldi versus Alldi"
What kind of music do you like? – I asked a generic kid. I like most music, i like everything except rap and country – He or she answered. I’m fascinated by music, why people love certain styles, and why people hate certain styles, and the common thread it seems, are the most culturally deep. […]Read more "Kingdom Tourists i: Jazzcore"
If we explored the kingdom of God, got out of our comfort bubbles and championed others conclusions, seeing everything from someone elses shoes, maybe we would come to different convictions.
