Would you come?


If in my complete lack of spare time I managed to organize a dialogue between 20-30something professionals from Christianity, Islam and Judaism? There should be enough people of each faith in the area to support the idea. I’ve got no desire to convert anyone. But a true desire to learn. (and that would be the […]

I want to get another tattoo. Currently I have one, a crow on the middle of my back, that’s there purely for me, because other than my husband, no one’s going to see it. And I got it after I was a fully practicing member of the Church. I’m conflicted however. I’ve got 9 holes […]
