Frat Boys Gone Mild

Fraternities generally have a not so great reputation in the public eye. Between hazing practices, horrible sexist and misogynistic attitudes towards women, racist attitudes towards people of color... I mean it's all true. Those things have happened. And by in large, the worst things you may have heard about through various media is only what happens And, like any group, there are always exceptions to the rule. Today, you're going to hear the stories of two gay brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon who learned the value of their humanity because of their fraternity experience and also found a path to spiritual health. Listen to "#44 - Frat Boys Gone Mild" on Spreaker. I'd love to hear what you think. Comment…

Do Less. Feel More.

My therapy sessions always tend to start the same way. My therapist asks, "How do you feel?" I'll say, "I'm fine, I think." And then I think to myself then what the fuck are you doing in therapy if you're fine? Idiot... I'll start off with small things and start talking about the things that have happened as of late, new insight I'm having. About midway through the conversation, I'll begin to find myself detaching from the emotions welling up in my throat and boiling up behind my eyes. I'll stop. "What was that shift in your body just now?" She's very observant, my therapist. It's like she can read my emotions as if they were running across my forehead. "I…

1 Cor. and 1 Tim. Is it about Gay Sex or Exploitation?

Arsenakoitai and Malakoi are two words that mean two different things. So why do modern biblical translation them render them as one word—homosexual? In this latest video, we're covering the two clobber passages in 1 Corinthians and 1 Timothy, where two Greek words, which are notoriously hard to translate with 100% accuracy, have been mistranslated, misused, and misrepresented.

Advent in Retrograde…

Advent is the beginning of the Church's liturgical calendar. I never knew that growing up. I always thought that Christmas happened at the end of the year, a way to go out with a bang when really, it's meant to be the beginning. It's a season of preparing ourselves for what is to come in the year ahead of us. It's the darkest point of the year (at least for the northern hemisphere) and each Sunday we light a new candle to signify the Light of God coming to us, illuminating the shadows. I've been meditating on this concept a lot recently, how that in the midst of the darkness of our world, God came as a tiny drop of…
