An Open Letter to Kairos Christian Church

To my beloved Kairos Christian Church,

The moment I have been dreading is upon us. In less than two days, I’ll be on a flight to New York City. I’m writing this letter a couple of weeks before my last Sunday with you all, and I hope I didn’t bawl like a baby during service today haha. But even if there is time before I leave as I write this, I stand between two very conflicting emotions when I…

This past year was rough, but I’ve moved on, and I’m moving on.

A lot of times, I’m waiting for some sort of event to change me. I’m looking forward to my move to the east coast in less than a week, and a part of me still clings to the idea that this move is gonna be what sweeps away the dirtiest parts of my life. But a change in scenery will not necessarily bring change. I remember also thinking that college would change the unrefined portions of my life.…

But I Love You [Lyrical Cover, Finished]

Untitled Lyrics [Finished]

This lonely morning that I met without you
People haven’t heard a word but they can tell I miss you
I’m walking through the streets and my eyes are stained red
‘Cause I never thought I’d ever have to live without you
My Venus, I prayed to God that forever love would be us
And now it’s so unfair that I’m thinking love is venomous
My every move, every action I do
Only serves to remind me of the…

This makes me a combination of upset and sad. Before people accuse me of being a…

Debate http://wp.me/s2Wu79-debate

I’ve been reading and watching a lot of apologetics and New Atheism stuff lately.

I’m not really sure where the sudden fascination came from. I think I honestly just saw a suggested video on Youtube, and I clicked it. Certainly, being trained in science before I was a Christian, I tend to look at the world in a very stringent manner. If my parents claim eating a certain type of food is bad, I…
