The eternal illusion of the fundamental secret

One of the mind’s most pleasant and, at the same time, most tormenting occupations is to dream of a better life. How many times have we tried to generate a change for the better by means of a new purchase, new friends, new house, new job, new relationship or other ideas for a fresh start?

Evolution and creation. Closer to the core of the controversy

I got acquainted with Ariel Roth as writer, but I also got to meet him as a human. I haven’t discovered neither fanaticism, nor nervousness, no doubt or ideological speech in octogenarian Ariel Roth, who is still looking for details for each new subject appearing on the debate agenda of between evolution and creation, with the same desire to be honest and to...

Beauty in brokenness

Amy Ainsworth is the mother of 5 year old twin girls, whose appearance together, in photographs is surprising and fascinating at the same time – how else could it be to see a pair of big green eyes showing off from behind brown curls of one of the girls, next to the coffee-cloured eyes and black, straight hair of the second twin?

In search of lost meaning

Traditional communities are like rivers, while modern societies are like oceans, said Polish sociologist Zygmunt Bauman.

How to study the Bible properly

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, […] who correctly handles the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

Prayer and the presence behind the silence

The words God is not listening! He is not answering! are the essence of one of our most troubling complaints. Is there an answer to it powerful enough to pull us from doubt’s darkness?

COVID-19: What if we received bad news in a void?

What if there was no good news to give us confidence that we could get through the troubles facing us now? What if there was no good news to assure us that we are cherished, loved and supported, that we are not alone?

COVID-19: Crisis prayer and the crisis of our prayers

I was descending from Omu Peak, in the Bucegi Mountains, with a few dozen young people. It had not been an ideal hike, and we were behind schedule. The forest made the darkness even thicker as it began to cover the mountain, and slowly, our minds as well.

COVID-19: Fake news, now and ever

Elisa Granato, one of the first people to be tested for a Covid-19 vaccine, died. The news rolled in the virtual media 6 times faster than other news.[1] Keep this number in mind. This is important because, as we learn from a study published in Science, fake news spreads on average 6 times faster than genuine news. And not only faster, but also...
