What do Christian folk do? Lee Parish – Forthright Magazine> In 1960 the legend of Arthur of Camelot found its way to Broadway in Lerner and Loewe’s stage production, Camelot. The second act contains a curious song entitled, “What Do Simple Folk Do?”. Burdened by sin and wearied by life, Arthur and Guenevere wonder what commoners do to alleviate such pressure. Three times Queen Guenevere asks Arthur, “What do the simple folk do” to “escape when they’re blue” or “to pluck up the heart and get through.” “They must have a system or two,” she contends. Arthur answers with simple remedies, they “whistle,” they “sing,” and they “dance.”/1

What's stopping euthanasia laws?


So as to not get prejudged, I don't advocate #Suicide as a solution to a hard life, I advocate society to support its struggling members to live a meaningful happy life. Sometimes I can understand why a person checks-out though. When people are medically circling the drain, I can certainly advocate for a person deciding to end the suffering. I'm nuanced on the topic. However...

Theirs a lot of #Religious vs. #Secular arguments around #Euthanasia, but I'd like to offer an #Economic perspective. I have a natural distrust when something is clearly an intractable argument, that instances of the predicament have to be judged on... Show more...

What is faith?


1 JOHN 5, Free Bible Commentary> This is the only use of the NOUN form of the term "faith" (pistis) in all the writings of John! Possibly John was worried about an overemphasis on "correct theology" (as a system of beliefs) versus daily Christlikeness.

This is a very modern, Protestant concern, not an apostolic one. Jesus and his Twelve saw no conflict between the content of faith and its exercise.

Unpacking the colonialism problem


These thoughts are mine and mine alone

I've been privately exploring Germanic/European pagan belief systems a lot lately and taking a good, well read look at whatever I can find that's left of tribal Germanic/European origins. There's a great deal of information derived from speculation around the way of life my ancestors used to live, all of which seems really fascinating, but hard to swallow because the culture was largely wiped out by the onset of the Romans and their preferred belief system.

It's also worth noting that I live in a "socially progressive" bubble, which for the most part resonates well with me, but I've heard more than once that "white people have no culture." Everything is stolen. It's fair to say that the meaning of culture is relative to the time that we live in.

Nevertheless, I make the argument today that our ancestral culture is stolen from us by the very same culture that is destroying First Nations culture in Canada and Native American culture in the US. In... Show more...
