The price of my original art and prints is going back up this weekend. Take advantage of the low prices. Especially if you want to own an original Sophia drawing. Go to my online art gallery for originals and prints now.
This poor pastor lives under the constant fear of being discovered. I had lived under the same fear of my people discovering what I really thought about some theological issues. I know many pastors who live under the constant fear of their deepest selves, their deepest questions, their deepest doubts, their deepest convictions that aren’t popular or orthodox, being discovered.
Exposure in harsh conditions can be brutal.
I encourage people to become confident in who they are, what they are, and what they believe to be true. Live from that first. It takes great conviction and courage because the ramifications could be severe.
They will discover in time… it is my hope… that they are happiest to be authentically themselves than to live up to the fantasies and expectations of others.
Many people have broken free of their fear and either have been discovered, allowed themselves to be discovered, or exposed themselves. They are happier for it.
