    Recollections

    Have you ever had one of those memories where it was so strong and fragrant that it nearly took your breath away? The past converged on the present and time simply slipped away…ah, yes.

    Belief Chemistry

    Several years ago I was talking with a dear friend about walking the opposite way from Jesus – who refers to Himself as “the Light of the World”. Stay with me for a moment…Lightspeed is a fascinating concept for mere mortals such as us. Science tells us that if one were to travel at lightspeed, time would slow down or…
