    A few of my EP friends recently posted a

    statement of beliefs and I've really enjoyed reading them and learning more about my friends. I've enjoyed them so much, in fact, that I've decided to post my own list. A brief introduction is in order first though ... a “preamble” of sorts. Most of my EPeeps already know...

    I believe that imagination is stronger

    than knowledge — myth is more potent than history — dreams are more powerful than facts — hope always triumphs over experience — laughter is the cure for grief — love is stronger than death. © Robert Fulghum

    Is Christianity A "Crutch"?

    I am amused by the insinuation that a faith based belief in the Bible and Jesus Christ is for the weak. Those incapable of handling the difficulties and challenges of life or have a reasonable fear of death are somehow propped up by an unreasonable and unrealistic belief in a...

    When God Created You

    My Tree

    When I first bought my house, I had to create a run for the horses to get safely from the barn, around the pond and out to the corral and pasture. In order to do so, I transplanted four little evergreen trees that were in the way, knowing that the horses would destroy them. The...

    Teamwork

    David And Goliath

    Merry Christmas

    I believe that roughly 2000 years ago, a baby was born in a manger in the town of Bethlehem. I believe that he was born to Mary, a young woman who had yet to have sexual intercourse with a man, a virgin. On that night, I believe that the angels and all of creation understood...

    Living

    Don't live your life to be remembered or to be honored or even to make a difference. Live your life to love, and to serve and to create. Live in such a way that rather than being missed, your life work, will be a building block for others to complete in generations ahead. I...

    Warning: Christians have rated this story

    "flamming" this does not mean I am promoting homosexuality, it just means that if you enjoy this, you'll burn in Hell right next to us! :) I believe that the Bible was written by man, interpreted by man, and abused by man. I also believe that the Bible stands for Breeders...

    for the safety inspection to be completed on my car. A soft, misty rain was falling. I was thinking of my husband who had passed away about 8 months earlier. In my mind I was telling him I needed to know if he had loved me. (Those words came much easier to me than to him...

    “To live on a day-to-day basis is insufficient

    for human beings; we need to transcend, transport, escape; we need meaning, understanding, and explanation; we need to see over-all patterns in our lives. We need hope, the sense of a future. And we need freedom (or, at least, the illusion of freedom) to get beyond ourselves...
