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 at least two religious…
Immersion in Relationships: Five Ways to Bring your Relationships to Life
I did something last night with my wife that we haven’t done in a very long time… Okay, not from that far back, but it certainly feels that way. Last night, we had a date night. No kids, no blog, phones tucked away, and all focus on each other. Well, each other and my pitcher…
The Path of Immersion: An Introduction and How Entering the Path Leads to a Deeper Sense of Self
Today marks my official declaration of fidelity and discipleship to the Path of Immersion. Along with that declaration, I also invite you to join me in whatever capacity feels the most suitable. The Path of Immersion is not one which demands conversion, evangelism, worship, or exclusivity. Along this path, I am no master, for there are…
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. Despite the positive instruction from my pastor and others, I (for reasons I cannot explain) transformed into a fiery evangelist, launching Christianity at friends and strangers like salvos of religious artillery. I believe that is partially why…
The Strategy for living a Year as “The Disciple”
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: An endorsement for Christianity or Judaism. An attempt to prove or disprove the historicity of…
The Disciple: A Year Living as a 1st Century Follower of Jesus
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 early June and we just wrapped up our annual week-long vacation with my in-laws at…
Are You Living Out Your Parents’ Religion?
Religion is an important, if not central, strand in many American families. We see the traditional set-up all over the place and now that I’m something of a spiritual nomad, I have the privilege of an objective witness to the show. A Southern Baptists couple, dressed in their Sunday best and King James Bibles cupped…
Calvin and Hobbes: An American Upanishad?
My wife Heather acts like she knows me. Maybe she’s seen the volumes of Calvin and Hobbes comics in my “book box” in the attic. Perhaps I’ve quoted a few lines or reminisced on fantasies over building disturbing snow monuments in the front yard. Either way, she sent me the following Calvin and Hobbes comic…
Celebrating the Glory of the Sun
Today (in the Northern Hemisphere) marks a time that goes by many names: Litha, Midsummer’s Eve, the Summer Solstice…and all point to the sun’s highest glory. Last year’s experience with Wicca made it exceedingly clear that I have a (to my pleasant surprise) close relationship with the Goddess and her Moon, however I’ve always personally…
