BlankSay Hello to Jesus...

When not speaking to friends in parables about solutions to the emptiness a=
nd spiritual death created by modern mainstream society, I speak thoughtful=
ly about diverse topics related to the quest to uncover and share meaning i=
n life. Through honest exploration and confrontation with our thoughts and =
feelings, we can overcome the pervasive confusion and doubt that threatens =
to suffocate our hope at every turn.
