A Season of Waiting

Today was the first day of Advent. It was also the first time that I experienced Advent in a liturgical setting. Friends, it was such a beautiful service and one that my heart needed. It was impressed upon me today how much of our faith is centred in the act of waiting. Abraham waited 86 … Continue reading A Season of Waiting

An Open Letter to a Reader

I grew up in a family and a faith system where psychology was eyed with great suspicion. I’d heard all the usual fundamentalist anxiety about Jung’s heretical beliefs, and Freud’s … Continue reading Therapy Is Always A Good Choice
