  • Experiencing God

    “And one of the most important things that we [members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints] emphasize about God when we talk about God is the fact that God is a person like us; fingers, toes, eyes, nose. And that’s important, I think, with respect to doctrine. But when we try to […]

  • A new direction?

    I have struggled for a while now with what to make of this blog. Share insights from what I am reading? Reimagining Mormonism? Exploring Tolkien? Tolkien + Mormonism + meditation?

Stare into the depths and become swallowed up in the mystery of the person in front of you. That is if you’re able to do so without the individual thinking you’re insane, feeling uncomfortable, […]

  • It is not about right or wrong

    Just then, Ali, the guy whose side I was agreeing with, snapped at me. “It is not about right or wrong; it is do you understand!” Matthew McConaughey, GREENLIGHTS I’ve been pondering this scene for weeks now. Until coming across that concept in GREENLIGHTS, I had never considered that disagreements shouldn’t be about right or […]
