Heaven’s Eyes

Our eyes are the windows to the soul—or so the saying goes. They are the gatekeepers of the mind; the doorways of the heart; and the sentries upon the towers. Poetic as these phrases may be, reality is not too far behind. In a very real neuroanatomical sense, to look into someone’s eyes is to […]

The Robe of His Righteousness

A shot was fired a few miles from my home, February of 2012. That gunshot, which resulted in the death of a young African American, marked the beginning of a disquieting conversation over race.

The Feeling of Awe

Awe—three letters that define the feeling of reverence as it intermingles with fear and wonder. In the simplicity of those letters is captured the emotion felt by all who witnessed the eclipse this August. It is difficult not to have been overtaken by the event: Joy and fear mixed into a single voice as the […]

17. Water

Where there is water there is life. Our own planet has about 70% of its surface covered by oceans, rivers, lakes and ponds (Pearlman, 2016). Even our bodies are made of about 60% water, distributed throughout the various tissues and vessels of our anatomy (Helmenstine, 2017). To say we don’t need water is to inevitably […]
