#God is at #Starbucks

In my life, I am too busy…

Reclaiming #mysticism, #prophets & #christianity in Grounded

You probably haven’t noticed this, but prophets are often outside the fold of the norm in scripture.

The #God #Experience or Why do we do that #church thing?

Epiphany is a realization that changes you… that’s what the Magi had…it changed them Matthew 2:1-12 Then they were brave… Why? Because they experienced God….Experiencing God is like experiencing the stars. We can define the stars…but the experience of these burning masses of gas, is beyond a description. We can define God as this fully … Continue reading
