A Superior Lens

Doorways to Christian Contemplation A Superior Lens Friday, July 16, 2021 Today the unnecessary suffering on this earth is great for people who could have “known better” and should have been taught better by their religions.

This Is an Apocalypse

Apocalyptic Hope This Is an Apocalypse Monday, April 26, 2021 In April of last year, I was invited by the Call to Unite [1] to share my thoughts about what we might learn from the COVID-19 pandemic.
