Can You Love This Woman?   “Some fucking cop just shot a dude in his own apartment!!!”  Before I could even process what was happening, I got another call.  “You won’ believe this shit…a female cop shot an innocent brother in his own apartment…over there off Lamar…we got to get out there!”  Almost without thinking, I got in my car and started driving.  For the entire drive, both my mind & heart were consumed with the magnitude of it all. Tears… Read more

      Since its modern inception, I have given my life to the Dallas Movement. I didn’t expect to become a leader…but I guess I am. I didn’t choose this path…this path was chosen for me.   At all of the marches…the rallies…the protests…the actions, I did my best to help create healthy productive spaces to channel the rage that so often consumed us. Sometimes we were more successful than others. There has always been a contingent that wanted… Read more

    God has created us in the image of God.     What happens after certainty?  Reality dissipates and something more still seems to be out there.  Metaphysics deals with what’s next.  The subject begins with the idea that we are unbelievably more capable than we can ever know.  We are life beyond life.  Metaphysics is about daring to go beyond what we can prove.  Always believing that there is something more. Knowing that we can change our own reality… Read more

  Every year…I go through this.  Every year…there is a need for numerous emails.  Every year…the questions seem to probe deeper.  Every year…I have to threaten legal action to get it to stop.  Every year…I fight for the religious liberty of our family.   Texas schools only seem to recognize the religious liberty of one group…those who have US flags hanging in the sanctuary of their churches…those who believe that the US military is a divine instrument of God…those who… Read more
