It is well (by faith, not fact)

Reflections on the ministry teaching of telling others “It is well” and how it creates paradoxes, contradictions and necessary inconsistencies in my life.

Here is the song I was talking about in the video. It is not the traditional version. It is a modern version I like a lot. 

The traditional melody and lyric is here, also beautiful:

Setting them free 

Setting them free

By R. Wolf Shipon (

If someone you know 

Feels the urge to go

You just set them free

And if you’re like me

Rant: Use the word “bigot” as necessary

This is absolutely a rant. This is about privilege and bigotry, language, and diplomacy vs. name calling.
