After hiking through the woods and getting throughly turned around and literally going around in circles and retracing my steps, this was my mood! 😱

(Don’t worry, I found my way out eventually… all is well. 😜)

The good part about joining a gym that has a café area is I can bring my laptop here and get work done.

The bad part is now I’m sitting in a chair working on my computer, and I’m at a freakin’ gym! 🧐🤨😭

📺 Episode 2 of Essential Life

This week’s challenge is to practice the power of observation! Learn all about a fantastic awareness training technique I learned from Mindsight by Dr. Daniel Siegel. And of course more Portland awesomeness, more trains, and more coffee!

The Soul’s Objective Union with God

Grace can only be trusted by an equally graceful human nature. Our work is merely to till the fertile soil, knowing that the Indwelling Spirit has already been planted within, and She is the One who “teaches you all things and reminds you of all things” (John 14:26). Many Christians have tried to pile a positive theology of salvation on top of a very negative anthropology of the human person, and it just does not work. The human self-image is too damaged and distorted within such a framework.

In my personal experiences of dealing with mental health issues and stuggling with shame and self-worth, I’ve come to the conclusion that the doctrine of “original sin” is dangerous, deeply problematic from a “Jesus’ ministry”-centric viewpoint, and at the end of the day not even necessary for an incredibly rich and vibrant Christian faith.

For more observations on this topic, I’ll point you to my interview with Danielle Shroyer, author of Original Blessing.

Working in the Pearl District of #portland when it’s such gorgeous weather out feels like cheating. If there’s any legit use of the hashtag “blessed,” this is it!

There’s a lot of really bad religion out there. Social media makes this seem even more outrageous. Here are a couple of clues to help sort things out:

Does your faith compel you to become more compassionate towards others, or more embittered?

Do you regularly shake your head as you worry about those (X) people groups doing (Y), or do you see each person as a unique individual human worthy of respect?

Over the weekend, I spent a glorious day in #portland shooting a mega ton of footage for the trailer to my revamped YouTube channel. Also got to put my new Canon EOS 77D through its paces. I’m wild with anticipation how the final edit’s going to turn out! 🙌‬

We’re approaching the end of the main season for rose blossoms, so I was thrilled that the Rose Garden up in Washington Park in Portland, OR still has some exquisite roses blooming. Check it out if you’re in the area…one of my favorite spots in the city!
