Daring to minister is as necessary as preparing to minister, for it’s when we are in the valley of confrontation that we’ll look down and see five smooth stones (1 Samuel 17) waiting to be put to God’s use. —-A Pillar a Day I have been experiencing deep, deep valleys of confrontations for the last […]
I decided that for my elevation I’d give making a Cranach style gown a shot. Normally, I make what I call “trash German” (whose idea was it to make me a Laurel?), but I figured the circumstances called for a little more glam than my usual linen camp garb. Woe is me though because, crikey, […]
Conservatives are nice.
I repeat, conservatives are nice and they actually care about people other than themselves. Shocking, right?
Now I know what you’re thinking, Kavya, did they indoctrinate you? I promise you, there was no “enhanced” interrogation type techniques used on me, nor was I surrounded by cherry-picked conservatives, and I know this because some of them were the typical conservative you read about in the liberal media, or as I like to call it, the “correct” media. Alas, I wish I was brainwashed and it would slowly wear away so that I didn’t feel the call to defend Republicans around my liberal friends because it would simply make life easier. Before I get too carried away with my frivolous musings and witty jokes that probably only I am laughing at as I write this, I wanted to share my main takeaways from this month. This is the first installation in what I hope will be a series, am I going to become a fearless liberal blogger? Probably.
Yes, Maine does have some very warm and humid summer days. Without air conditioning it is hard to spend much time in the kitchen so whatever is served for dinner has to be quick and easy. On those too warm days, nothing beats a bowl of cold soup at least when no members of my […]
My loves, it has been… well, a while since I’ve last posted. This past year has been a tumultuous journey, to say the least. In my muggle life, I completed my first year as a visiting professor while simultaneously completing coursework for my doctoral degree and entered the world of comprehensive exams and dissertation prospectus. […]
The pink carpet glares up as I sit at the u-shaped set of tables with the rest of the class. The teacher stands in front of the blackboard, but there’s silence. It drags out, thick and dark becoming a void that eats up the whole room. It’s coming from me, as I try and fail […]
If you’re looking for a great event to attend this summer, you should check out Travelling Dishes with Aunty Dupe’s Buka. Musing with Mo was very lucky enough to sit down with the founder and creator of Aunty Dupe’s Buka, Dupe Adedeji and here is what she had to say. In your own words could […]
Not news. I know. I’m in the city today, or, as some have named it, “the sh*tty”. There are ashen skies with damp, darkened streets, and I am in my weird sterile white office feeling trapped, looking at puddles on rooftops and thinking about being in the woods. I don’t know why everything in our […]
6:30 am… I am groggily aware of a pair of eyes staring at me through a tiny crack in my bedroom door. “Mum! Mum! Are you awake?” “I am now. Good morning gorgeous.” Stretch and yawn, and it’s pile on Mum. No dosing for me, they’re raring to go this morning, and Cleo has a […]
Last week, I did a thing. I did a thing I had been wanting to do for months now but hadn’t been able to, for reasons that probably had no business in the real world and only resided inside my head. I quit my job. I quit a job that undoubtedly taught me incredible things; […]
I make out with a girl, I start turning’ into one. You gotta admit that’s a little weird. The co-workers got me again…first Tusk, now this one SMH. And this one was worse than the first…didn’t even think that was possible. This movie was bonkers with a capital “B”…nothing about this made sense. Billed as […]

Discipleship There is a lot to say on this topic, but I want to bring our attention to a specific issue, which is the preparing people for the work of the ministry. The role of the church is to teach and train believers to go out into the world and be a witness for […]
By Sherrie Ann Cassel This page is about grief. I have lost a son, flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone, my heart and my soul, and I will navigate the grief process for the rest of my life. Certainly, there are other losses, e.g. losing a parent, a sibling, a spouse, a job, […]
I can feel myself deteriorating. I am so tempted to just take the next steps and free myself of this insanity. Yes, I did manage to get writing done last night. I also stayed up until 3 AM fighting for my self worth and value. I am exhausted. I can see so many ways out, […]
