As Denise and I were contemplating taking the plunge into the world of entrepreneurship one of the themes we kept circling back to was this idea that we were abandoning stability. I had a good job with “reliable” income, and I was going to put that behind me to pursue something that was very much uncertain.
But the more I thought about it, the more I came to believe that stability is something of an illusion.

Last week I was interviewed for the Faith Beyond Belief podcast. We discussed my book about arguing with friends. Here’s the link:
Here’s a link to the website associated with my book;
I think the plan is to do another interview about my other book; the one about suffering. Just in case arguing with your friends isn’t enough suffering…
The Notley government is taking aim at the Catholic teachings on sexuality because (among other reasons) it is allegedly not “evidence based.” I will ignore the other reasons for now, but…
Here’s a little evidence (with links to the resources) regarding sexuality, family and health that isn’t likely to be seriously considered by the NDP but which – ironically enough – is probably more or less consistent with Catholic teachings.

For the sake of this blog, that represents the end of this chapter in Denise’s health story and a return to our regularly scheduled programing. Back to whatever eclectic subjects I find interesting and feel like exploring through writing.
Feel free to stick around, or if my interests and perspectives don’t interest you, thanks for visiting.
Most humans, regardless of their worldview, seem rather bothered by the fact that “good people” suffer. Christianity takes this a step further because God – being a loving father – is supposed to protect those who submit themselves to him. And yet good people suffer. Christians get sick and die; even before their time.
There have been many profound explorations of this subject, to which I add a few (not entirely original) thoughts.

Denise’s VAD implant surgery is done, and it went well. Overall it’s a bunch of good news.
Details at the update page (this link); scroll to the bottom.
This most recent health hurdle with Denise has inspired some further reflection on the subject of suffering. The most poignant question in my mind is, “why in the world do I seem to be handling this situation so much better than the previous situations?”
Upon reflection, I may have stumbled upon one key ingredient in eliminating (or, at the very least, significantly reducing) suffering.
