ANOTHER DAY

Inspiration, Design, Philosophy, Photography, Poetry, Humor, and Faith.

You are the Church (Intro)

“Church is about what we carry inside of us not about what a few performers demonstrate up on a stage.”     The term Church originated from the Greek word ekklesia. This word refers to the aggregate of the individual people that have been marked as followers of Christ. These followers are not mere religious adherents attending weekly religious education…

Overload

We have a biological, social and psychological limitation regarding community. The neo-cortex can actually only assist in our facilitating well, about 100 to 150 people in any real relationship context. I would argue this may be even more reduced in our age as tech and social networks have eaten a slice of that limited neocortex “pie.” If our relational capacity…

Prayer, Power and Overcoming Dead Religion

Greetings, I wish I could say it was by some profound inspiration that I’m writing at this hour but the reason is more irritating actually. It’s just past 1:30am and I can’t sleep despite feeling very tired. I decided to kill the time by sharing some things I’ve been thinking on lately regarding prayer. I know what I am about…

AmeriRussia

In the same vein as “Make the Empire Great Again” I couldn’t help in light of the recent, “Russia hacked our election” news to do a mashup of the American and Russian flag. Added a little jest at the bottom by placing the tag Trump / Putin 2020. I love photoshop and the only sanity I can find during this…

Growing: Gather, Process, Adjust + Evolve. (P1)

With 2016 coming to a close and a new year at our door I felt motivated to share some concepts about growing personally, spiritually and professionally. The following is a post in a series of posts that I will write about growing. I believe these principles will contribute to your creating a lifestyle of personal development. I’d also love to…

Burning Fast (Poem)

  Pleasure turns to ash as life metabolizes in a moment’s stomach. Fervently gobbling sights at the gate, our sacred images empty. Burning fast under smiling masters that cost more than our take. Inside out our life’s blood has no place and all we see is red.     Gaffed flesh void of anesthetic pulls our strut down upon unframed…

Snarky, Snide, and Contemptuous

Some of the synonyms for contemptuous are scornful, disdainful, disrespectful, insulting, mocking, sneering, scoffing, scathing, snide; condescending, haughty, proud, superior, arrogant, dismissive; high and mighty, snotty, and sniffy. I think that many of these words have come to characterize much of our communications in America on and off the web. These types of things have become common for us even…

Striving Vs. Growing

Trying to be good or better is not the ultimate goal of our faith. Grace was not given for us to fall in line. We were created to be fully alive spiritually and love deeply and purely. Unfortunately we are all caved in more empty versions of our intended design. The caved in conscious mind has difficulty seeing beyond itself…

God is Love

Our relationship with God is intricately tied to our relationship with people. We cannot despise, malign, hurt, seduce, manipulate and or degrade another human being and not be hostile toward God. Our “way” toward God is broken when we injure people because God is Love. This is clear through Scripture. “Any one who says they love God and hates his…

Atlanta Bound

A few months ago an impression that Victory World Church in Atlanta, GA may be an assignment for our family. Having turned down consistent offers over the last few years from other places of interest (including Atlanta) I was resolute about our place here and rooted in Oklahoma City. I had come to the place of not even considering it…
