It's time we broke the silence and distance that separates us. We must recognize that even if we are different cultures and faiths, we may agree about what God is, only spoken with different words.
He is Risen? – Faith in the Resurrection
The truth is we don't know for sure. All we have are eyewhitness accounts of his body missing from the tomb and tales of sightings of him in the hours and days immediately after the discovery of the empty tomb.
A fitting image…
God is indeed great!
The Simple Gifts…
By Pastor Robert Perez Think of the simplest of gifts that you received today. Did you get a hug today? A smile? Did you eat something yummy? Many blessings are shared on this holiest of days when we celebrate the day Jesus erased from the finitude of death and rejoined His Father in Heaven. He [...]
Many Roads, One Destination
I knew from the start of my quest that I could not believe in the existence of God just for the sake of it. I needed proper scrutiny from multiple sources. My stringent search for God (which is a lifetime pursuit) has me traveling the Universe for answers and the truth by means of science, philosophy, and the study of diverse cultures and religions.
Adam and Eve Today

Trust (Part II): The Apostles on Their Own…
The reality of it was the brutality of hardships, uncertainty and emotional toil. It still rained on them. It still got cold outside. They still got hungry and infections and all kinds of dangers and ailments. But they kept going anyway.
Have you ever broken someone’s trust? Has your own trust been broken?
Faith in God, Regardless of How You Practice it (Just Ask Tom Cruise)
So, I thought to myself, is he a genuine spiritual person? Just because he is a Scientologist does that negate his spiritual self? Is he simply misplaced in that religious order? Or worse, is he the enemy?
We’re Animals with Advanced Souls
With shows like the brilliant West World and the new equally brilliant Raised by Wolves, both on HBO MAX here in the states, the topic of what is reality is hotter than ever, reaching mainstream homes. But in our quest to find the answers we must not allow ourselves to be so overloaded and confused with questions that we ignore some of the answers.
