Good News! The World Isn’t Ending.

Dr. Hannah Ritchie's new book, “Not the End of the World: How We Can Be the First Generation to Build a Sustainable Planet," has attracted widespread media attention, perhaps because of its refreshing optimism. Her articulate, data-based conclusions contrast with contemporary environmental doom and gloom outlooks.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) fertility treatments are on pause in Alabama due to the perceived fear of prosecution and lawsuits in light of the Alabama Supreme Court’s ruling on Friday, Feb. 16, stating that human beings frozen in the embryonic stage have the same legal rights and protections as children who are born.

Why, as a Hindu, do you not believe in a God and everything in the universe indicates his existence?

For Lent Let’s Give Up Negativity and Replace It with Positive Action

Attitudes about Lent have changed over the decades. Instead of “giving up” something for Lent, the approach is more about growing closer to Christ in more meaningful ways.

From the Wilderness into New Life: Everyone Can Participate in Lent

Lent thus offers a cluster of possibilities: fasting — or at least giving up something for Lent; repenting; joining Jesus in a wilderness experience; and experiencing the lengthening of days. Can everyone take part?

I explain that the world as God intends it to become is seen through the signs of the miraculous, particularly in the ministry of Jesus.

The miraculous, the reign of God, life as it will be, can be, and should be, made visible for a short glimpse in time when the coming world breaks in upon this one. The deep inner dream of every being is for a world to be made right, to be whole. The imagination is evidence of the coming possibilities, the dawning age, the great reordering of chaos. It's written into the soul of every human being, culture and people — a witness to the truth that God is not done creating.

I am Frederick Christian Blauer IV, but I go by Eric, it sounds less like a megalomaniac but still hints at my Scandinavian destiny of coastal conquest and ultimate rule. I have accumulated a fair number of titles: son, brother, husband, father, pastor, writer, artist and a few other more colorful titles by my fanged fans. I am a lover of story be it heard, read or watched in all beauty, gory or glory. I write and speak as an exorcist or poltergeist, splashing holy water, spilling wine and breaking bread between the apocalypse and a sleeping baby. I am possessed by too many words and they get driven out like wild pigs and into the waters of my blog at www.fcb4.tumblr.com. I work as a pastor at Jacob's Well Church (www.jacobswellspokane.com) across the tracks on 'that' side of town. I follow Christ in East Central Spokane among saints, sinners, angels, demons, crime, condoms, chaos, beauty, goodness and powerful weakness. I have more questions than answers, grey hairs than brown, fat than muscle, fire than fireplace and experience more love from my wife, family and friends than a man should be blessed with in one lifetime.
