Faith is not the absence of doubt

At BBC there is the all holy seminary reading room. It’s a humorous title, it’s just the seminary room. One day we were brought into this room. I do not remember which professor it was, but I do remember the warning: “Many of the…

If you were God…

…How would you make yourself known? Would you even bother? Which would you chose? Creation: Make a perfect paradise for all to enjoy! (+) There are no struggles. It’s perfect. As God, you get to walk among the world without getting mad or frustrated…

Life is short…Psalm 39

1 For Jeduthun, the choir director: A psalm of David. I said to myself, “I will watch what I do and not sin in what I say. I will curb my tongue when the ungodly are around me.” 2 But as I stood there…
