It Sneaks Up On You

Lonely

There is always a time in our lives when we’re suddenly hit with the realization of something that we never saw coming. It could be anything at all: suddenly realizing that you haven’t been 29 in at least 20 years; suddenly realizing that you’re not a billionaire like you’d planned; or even suddenly realizing that when you stopped shaving, the hair that started growing in again had turned a little more grey than you’d remembered.

Christianity 2.0

Christus Rex

It seems that Christianity and “The Church” (and to be even more precise, as most people call it, “organized religion”) is a completely changed creature since the beginning of the new millenium. The pendulum has swung so far to the left that many people don’t even want to be associated with any kind of religious institution for fear of being branded in some way. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard someone proclaim to me, “I’m spiritual, but not religious,” I’d be retired and living in Puerto Rico by now.

It’s like the term “religious” connotes something negative and evil – and with the state of so many churches and religions these days, with their abusive behaviour sex scandals and the financial guilt inflicted on those left behind, I can’t really say that I blame the public for feeling that way.

Random Thoughts IV

Thinker

I occasionally have these random thoughts. Rather than letting them die a lonely death, I decided to write them down until I had enough of them to post here. These are the ideas that I thought, “Gee, I should post a blog about that,” but then realize it’s either too stupid or short (or both) to create an entire blog posting for, so I save them in BlogPad Pro (my all-time favorite app for blogging!) until I have enough of them saved to torture you with them. So, as you read, you may be thinking, “Perhaps some of them should have died that lonely death….”

This is my forth installment of “Random Thoughts.” So enjoy… or not.
