Easter

Someone told me not long ago “Christmas is like the Super Bowl of Christianity”. I thought about that claim for a moment and replied “I think the Super Bowl is probably Easter…”. Though the Christmas season is profound in its own right, Easter is the single most impactful event in the history of the world....

Nearly two years ago, I built a shed. A few weeks ago, I got around to painting it. The delay between building it and painting it was quite intentional. The shed is actually a large resin shed I built with a friend at church as we worked to reopen our inclusive weekday preschool in the...

For Lent: Giving Up

The Lenten season is upon us. It takes only a moment to scroll through social media to find any number of announcements of people pausing their Instagram notifications for the next 40 days, abandoning Wordle until Easter morning, and throwing out all chocolate-based desserts until April 17.

With Gratitude

Dear Churches, We find ourselves in the season of thanksgiving, smashed somewhere between the last of the pumpkin spice latte and the first of the Christmas cookie season.

Running for political office is an effective way to influence change in your community especially for those who are underrepresented and often ignored. “Nothing About Us, Without Us” is a powerful slogan to draw strength from when running for elected office as a person living with a disability.

Finding Your Way as a Disabled Christian

Living with a disability can present a number of unique challenges. But as Christians, we have the wonderful possibility of facing them with the aid of the Holy Spirit. One major problem that a disabled person faces is self-image. I have epilepsy and get petit mal seizures five or six times per month. It’s not...
