Thank you for stopping by. Today I’ll share the overall strategy for “The Disciple: A Year Living as a Follower of Jesus.” First off, let’s go ahead and review what this new immersion project is not. “The Disciple” is not: […]

posted by

Oh no, not another immersion project! That’s what she said. No really, that’s what Heather said when the idea hit me like a punch in the gut on the way home from our family vacation earlier this month. Backstory… It’s […]

Faith by Fear: Converting in Fear of the Unknown.

posted by

The past can be a dangerous place. Often magnified by the lens of the present, mole hills indeed become mountains and insignificant creatures become history’s monsters. Like quicksand or a Chinese finger trap, our past sinks its hooks into us […]

Is There a God? Reflections from the Unaffiliated.

posted by

“Is there a God? If so, what’s he/she/it like?” “What do you believe about the divine?” “Is God one essence displaying itself in many forms?“ I get these perennial questions now and then and I assume it’s because of my […]

How Project Conversion Email Reaffirms My Purpose in Life

posted by

The email around here since Project Conversion began in January of 2011 is an interesting place. A veritable Cracker-Jack box of emotionally laced messages, I never know what surprise will emerge each day. Sometimes people inform me that I’m heading […]

Mothers: Doing More Than Just the Laundry Since…

Moms are kind of a big deal, so it’s no surprise that cultures around the world celebrate the blessing of motherhood in various ways.

Falling Off the Wagon: Taking a Hit of Hate.

posted by

There are folks close to me with substance abuse problems. Painkillers, alcohol, you name it, and their addiction is a cage they both cling to and abhor. I see their lives collapsing around them as the addiction burns relationships, jobs, […]

Why Christians and Other Members of Faith Should Support Gay Rights

posted by

Oh snap, it’s on. I love my home state of North Carolina, however just because I’m enamored by my swampy homeland, doesn’t mean we always agree. The North Carolina Same-Sex Marriage Amendment (“Amendment One”) is up for vote in just […]

The New Evangelism: How Being Instead of Preaching Builds Heaven on Earth

posted by

Every few weeks or so, I get an email that begins something like this: “I’m concerned that your journey through Project Conversion has led you down the path to Hell. Jesus said he was the only way to the Father. […]

According to my Wife, I was Brother Lawrence in a Former Life.

posted by

My wife and I were lying in bed last night reading when she calmly says out of nowhere, “I think you were this guy in a former life.” Heather is a Christian and so not usually given to such “Eastern” […]

How Will Your Faith Benefit Someone Today?

posted by

Seems like an odd question at first, doesn’t it? In fact, it sounds one degree away from proselytization. But that isn’t really what we’re talking about, is it? Faith, belief, and religion are usually quite personal. Most of us are […]

Easter Sunday 2012: The Resurrection of Purpose.

posted by

Last year I “met” a woman online through my adventures with Project Conversion. We’ll call her Jane. She is witty, extremely intelligent, enigmatic,  and has a strange interest in my psychological development through Project Conversion. She’s also in the middle […]

My Return After 40 Days.

posted by

Howdy. When I returned home after 45 days of Marine Corps. Boot Camp, driving a car was fairly awkward. I never rode in a vehicle of any sort while on the “island” because we walked, marched, or ran everywhere. Upon […]

Thinking About Sex, Understanding My Spirituality. Part 1

posted by

For the last three days I’ve had a one-track mind. Sex. That’s right, and it all began in the shower with the moon… I had just lathered my hair with shampoo. The lavender-scented bubbles slipped through my fingers and glided […]

Is This It? How Seemingly Dangerous Questions Strengthen Faith

posted by

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I like playing on the edge of things: Riverbanks, mountain ledges, religious convention, the patience of others….But one place I enjoy the most is the edge of my own beliefs. Flirting with the […]

Showdown with the Temple: How Enlightenment and Purpose Never Arrive as Expected..

posted by

I knew this day would come. My showdown with the River Temple has been on my mind since I abandoned it in September, because no matter how hard we try to avoid it, our destiny/fate/karma/purpose will always haunt us. The […]

It Is Finished: Reflections on a Year of Religious Immersion

posted by

I hope everyone enjoyed their New Year’s festivities and that those of you who indulged (perhaps a little heavily) recover quickly. Here we are on the first day of a new year and I have no new religion to immerse […]

The Sanctity of Doubt: A Thank You to Christopher Hitchens

posted by

I was in the middle of writing a post about God and art when I discovered that Christopher Hitchens had died. The typing stopped and the reading began. Once upon a time, ol’ Hitch was my hero, along with the […]

Oops, I did it again. This is when I wish I had a camera crew or producer following me around because yesterday was a once in a Project Conversion moment and– OH MY GODDESS I forgot to take pictures! So […]

What my Backyard Taught me about Wicca

Yesterday, it happened. It happens every month: A glimpse of understanding, a moment of Satori when suddenly, I connect and chaos briefly resembles order before dispersing again. The first week of every month is about rituals and practices. Here is where […]
