OtCV – The Dark Edition

I believe in the goodness of humanity. I really do. I really don't believe that whatever happened between the first humans and their creator caused a rift so devastating that humanity could be called totally depraved. As a Jesus follower and a lover of scripture, I find that to be a heinous theology and a... Continue Reading →


OtCV (Off the Cuff Vulnerability)

2 I've been thinking all day about what to write as a second instalment to OtCV. I really have no idea if this will be an ongoing thing; I usually reserve my vulnerability for my journals.
