TOTD – Time is Relative?!

TOTD – Time is Relative?!

by Senator Brett

I saw an ad on Facebook that said, “Become a drug counselor in 17 months.” And, I thought, “Screw that! That sounds like a REALLY long time! I’ll just become a drug addict! That takes, like five days! And, there’s, like ZERO classes! And, from what I can tell… Continue reading

They’re Not REAL Muslims?! WTF?!

For the past several months I have sequestered myself from most social media. For some reason I’ve found myself boarding the train of thought that vast amounts of social media is mostly mindless and mostly pointless… unless you are trying to create a business or be the next Beatles. However, in light of the events in Paris yesterday I do have some thoughts that I’d like to share. And, as with all things of opinion and commentary, these words are to be taken with a grain of salt… or maybe some whiskey.

“They’re not REAL Muslims. WTF?!”

by Senator Brett

Last night I found myself almost angry. The senseless and brutal murders of cartoonists and satirists in Paris not only bothered me, but it left me with a feeling of “it’s only gonna get worse.” How is it that we live in a world where Continue reading

by Senator Brett

I’m about to say a word that might offend a lot who stand on the “religious right” side of most social and political issues.

The Circle of Belief (From Conflicted)

Written by Conflicted Pastor -not me- for the book “Fumbling Through Our Faith”

The Circle of Belief

by Conflicted Pastor

There are many things in our lives that are as real as we choose to make them. Some things we dismiss immediately, while other things we choose to hang on to. What is the difference between the two? What makes us believe one thing and not another? My immediate answer to this is Continue reading

Something in The Middle of Nothing (Excerpt from “My Little Book of Essays”)

I wrote this when I was nineteen, or twenty. I forget. Anyway, I worked at The Galleria in Houston in retail sales at a now defunct clothing store. For those of you that have never been there, The Galleria has an ice rink on the bottom level, located amidst the stores and restaurants that line Floor One, it serves as not only a tourist attraction, but also a serious training facility. After the normal ice rink hours are over the rink is reserved for “personal” training. And, it’s not scrubs that skate there at that time… medaled Olympians have skated there. Continue reading
