Conversations with God #16…A Folk Tale

This is a folk tale.  Perhaps even a myth.  As with all folk tales, there is a kernel of truth in it.  But the story itself is not important, and it’s certainly not to be taken literally.  What’s important is how you might apply it in your life. What would you ask for if the […]

And God said, “I am”…

God said, “I am”. And it all went downhill from there. Why? Because we immediately began trying to figure out what that means. And then we began to write it down. And, of course, when something gets written (stone tablets, anyone?), it become solid.  Solid truth.  Unchanging truth. But, contrary, to popular opinion, God is […]

A Broken Heart and a Contrite Spirit #2
