GUESTS


Devotions or journaling is a personal part of my life as a Christian. This is my quiet time where God talks to me and teaches me things that i needed to learn. Christianity today rely so much in reading the scripture. Aside from first hand life experience, wisdom is also gained through journaling. Basically, this is a Christian's fuel to continue the race of faith.  As we live in this world, we are expected to excel, live and share. 

Through sharing, we learn from one another. Through sharing, we are able to touch one's life. Through sharing, we can make this world a little better. 

As a part of this sharing gesture, i invited these people to write on this blog. They have their own achievements on their personal journeys. Through these experiences and milestones, for sure, there's something that they could share to us for learning, touch lives and to make this world to be more artistic.

Here are your guest writers:


Name: Samuel Moore-Sobel
Field of Study: Government and International Politics
Church/Organization: McLean Bible Church
Position: Freelance Writer and Business Process Consultant
Focus: Leading a movement to bring scars to light, both visible and invisible.
Thoughts: Jesus’ scars are often overlooked. We focus on Jesus’ death and resurrection, while often failing to dedicate adequate time to actively explore this crucial scene from the Bible.
Challenges in writing: The biggest challenge in writing is to include everything you want to say in the space allotted. Oftentimes, I have words that are forced to hit the cutting room floor due to space constraints.
Realization: "Scars are an inevitable part of the human experience. As a Christian, I believe God calls us to share our scars with others, and to talk openly about the marks we carry in this world."
Message: Pain is an inevitable part of our experience. We are all guaranteed to experience much pain in this world. Healing does not occur when we hide past reminders of suffering. Healing can be attained by pursuing Jesus’ example of sharing our scars - both visible and invisible - with others.
For the readers: "I am passionate about bringing scars to light. My mother and I are nearing completion of a memoir focusing on our experiences revolving around both trauma and recovery.
