The Golden Hour: Faith in the Midst of Darkness

There’s a paradoxical hour each day when the definition and clarity of every object both animate and inanimate becomes muted and yet the color of the whole ether is intensified. There’s a dazzling warmth that permeates your field of vision and it seems almost as though the whole earth, after twelve-ish hours of daylight, is […]

Eight Misconceptions Concerning Christianity (from my vantage, at least)

I have found that people want those things which are near and dear to them to be well-understood and well-represented in public discourse.

The Place Where Kindness Goes to Die

Reminiscences on my Relationships Part II

It’s funny the little details you remember when you look back on things. The first time I saw my future wife I recall thinking to myself, “Wow! I sure hope she’s a freshman or a sophomore so I have time to get to know her.” I also noticed that she was wearing what I thought […]
