    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...

    There is true and false.

    A real truth that rings out and cannot be reduced, argued with, or masked. There is right and wrong. Not oh ok you are right because it is easier to say that than fight for the definition of that right. There is real and illusion. There are some that call it faith. Some had it...

    Choices And Consequences

    “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...

    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...

    Warning: Christians have rated this story

    All truly wise thoughts have been thought

    already, thousands of times; but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, until they take firm root in our personal experience.

    Trust

    To believe is to trust. To trust something is truly good. Believing in someone shows your trust to them and trust is an important thing. I believe in many people, I believe that their lives are important and believe they've earnt my trust in them.
