Guest Post by my Wife on How Religion Nearly Ruined Our Marriage.

The following post was written by my wife, Heather, for her blog www.upsidedownhomeschooling.com. Here you’ll get another perspective of our family life before Project Conversion began. Enjoy…

——-

Growing up my family was not very involved in church. I was baptized as an infant in the Lutheran church and I went through the major milestones: first communion, catechism, joining the church. I didn’t enjoy it. At all. My parents thought they were doing the right thing by having me participate in these activities, all the while really the only time they attended church was during one of the aforementioned milestones.

Faith in God was rarely talked about in our home. I knew my parents were believers and I just assumed religion was meant to be a private thing. So I never became interested.

If Your Destiny Doesn’t Scare The Hell Out of You, Then You Haven’t Found It.

Yesterday’s post bothers me. Sometimes we don’t need a message that comforts or nourishes us, but one which blows our proverbial socks off. Sometimes we need our facades and illusions destroyed.

That post did that for me, even though it was intended for you. But sometimes, we must eat our own words.

Maybe it’s the Whiskey flowing through my veins right now as the moon and stars wink at me overhead in the deep, black heavens that have inspired this evening’s candid discourse. I don’t know, but I’m about to lay some things out here, Congregation, and I think deep down you’ll know all too well the sting of reality I’m about to dish out.

God’s Will: How to Discover One’s Place and Avoid Mistaken Identity

Although I am no mechanic, I love watching machines work. The meshing of cogs, one influencing the other, with a power and synchronicity which shaped our modernity is mesmerizing. It also demonstrates the nature by which we humans (and other social creatures) operate. The bottom line is that all progress stems from cooperation, the movement and meshing of one cog with another to create a beautiful reality, much like the individual pieces that operate a pocket watch.

But what happens when your cog doesn’t mesh with the machine? What happens when your will resists the design? And how do we discern the origin of our drive?

Can We Understand the Holy Trinity by Contemplating Our Own Humanity?

posted by

Today is Trinity Sunday, or more properly known as “The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity,” in the Roman Catholic Church. On this day, Catholics celebrate a feast day which honors the mystery and doctrine of the Holy Trinity, the notion that God exists as one essence (from the Greek, ousia), however in three distinct “persons” (from the Greek, hypostasis), e.i. the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The notion of a Holy Trinity is one of the most mind-boggling, scandalous, and unique features in the world of religion, and it’s given theologians, philosophers, and spiritual seekers a migraine for nearly 2,000 years.

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit stopping for a photo op.

Is God an Immersionist?
In the world of faith, folks often point out the obvious fact that God does not belong to a particular creed, religion, race, or school of philosophy. This sentiment establishes the divine as one which transcends divisive terms of affiliation. But I am here to announce that a brief exploration of

Farewell, Project Conversion: The End of an Adventure
When I converted to Christianity at the age of 15, I assumed the faith with a passionate resolve.
