Morality Renovations vs Law’s Demolition

By: Sarah Taras on Thursday December 28, 2017

At one point, the bathtub in the master bedroom began to sink and we realized that the flooring was rotting underneath. Once we pulled the bathtub out we realized that water damage caused from leaks in the ceiling ducts was the source of the issue, and the entire bathroom needed to be gutted. Upon...

How Nonsensical!

He would show up and just stare at me with the strangest smile on his face. I would be filled with terror because I was acutely aware of all the “bad things” I was doing at the time, that I was hiding from everyone else. As he smiled at me, eyes deadlocked into mine, I knew he knew. For whatever...

Easy Believism? LOL!

If you are one who would like to love Him but who has not been able to do it, at least to your satisfaction, let me assure you that you will never learn to love by imposing it upon yourself as a duty. You will never love by saying “I will love, I will love, I will love” anymore than you can stop...

Just Admit It, You Stink!

By: Sarah Taras on Tuesday October 10, 2017

I don’t think it’s that the world of people outside of our faith expect us to be perfect, but more that we go about our lives pretending as though that were true. We try very hard to stay upwind from ourselves, enjoying our denial and calling it godliness, but that doesn’t stop the stench from...

I owned all of the most clever Christian bookstore t-shirts and brought my bible to school most days. I joined the Fellowship of Christian Athletes club on Friday mornings, even though I wasn’t an athlete. I sported those WWJD bracelets like they were the keys to the kingdom. I was a walking...

A Sinful Woman Forgiven (Luke 7:36–50)

By: Sarah Taras on Tuesday August 29, 2017

The lust that I battle on a regular basis is a real addiction. It’s the place where I run for comfort. It’s where I escape from boredom, frustration with life, difficulty in relationships, or just because I want one more fix. There are times that I don’t battle with it at all. Then there are...

Accountability

By: Sarah Taras on Thursday July 20, 2017

It’s a compelling story about a man caught up in a Meyerist cult. The prime belief held by the Meyerists is in a supreme “light” and followers of this light must ascend rungs of a spiritual ladder in order to advance within the movement and have the “truth” opened to them. From the...

Brain Theatre

By: Sarah Taras on Tuesday June 20, 2017

Fear, perform at Brain Theatre. Fear is a clever, high maintenance actress who shows up with great eagerness to dominate my life’s stage. While she’s incredibly talented and seasoned, she is also deeply insecure; she never shows up alone. When Fear takes center stage, she always brings with her...
