The Truth Does Set Us Free   1 comment

I pray this podcast helps to heal and shed light on a subject society is still so uncomfortable with … 

Thanking God for the truth that does set us free …

We are the Solution   Leave a comment

Let’s get this straight

In a world that’s overweight and overwrought, and overspent 

With food and drugs and shopping sprees

Running from dark clouds not overhead

But from inner dread

Digesting all the news we’re fed

At every turn another unexpected thing

Turns us back to overcoming suffering 

Not withstanding truth

The unbeliever’s soul

Sinks deeper in its hole

Appearing pretty 

Feeling shitty

The stench no cologne can quench 

What shall we do

I’ve heard it said

I can turn your head

But I cannot make you look

If you read me to the end

Please do not pretend

That this is mere exaggeration

Our world is whirling towards its predetermined destination

And we have heard in one way or another

God’s solemn invitation

To seek and serve in the light of spiritual solutions 

Get off your butts and your whatevers

And stand back from the cliff

Neither food or drugs or shopping sprees

And countless other maladies

Will assuage the guilt and shame

Let love have its day

To hold our hand through all the terror of discomfort

And even if you still refuse to believe

Love is sure to at least instill you with her peace

And that’s a place we can begin

To extend a hand and greet each other 

Not with fists and fear but with a smile and a kindly word

Spoken in a time of need 

A verse that has no need to be rehearsed

For the Spirit of Truth and Love is always at the ready 





D.O.C. – Drug of Choice = Dept. of Correction   Leave a comment

I’ve been doing service at the County Jail.
These women teach me so much –

They’re raw, they’re lonely, they’re imprisoned, afraid – They’ve committed crimes, doing time; some deceivers, now believers – They’re you, they’re me, they’re brides to be. I pray one day that they can see – all the possibilities – No more iron bars of prison time, or the mental bars of mortal minds, can ever separate us from the love of the One who made us

– For change to occur, what needs to be convicted most, is our hearts –
