I haven't been working on my blog much over the past year due to health reasons. I'm planning on resuming the series What are Catechisms?, but I don't expect to post regularly. The Catechisms series was originally intended to be something short while I was researching my next topic, but it turned into a much more time-consuming project than I had expected.

Some of the feeds are Breath Prayers, which are...

Why do you say, "I believe" in the church?
- Because faith, which makes people members of the church, is invisible, the church is invisible to human eyes...
Where alone does God offer the forgiveness of sins?
