The Heavens Declare

Today’s journal entry. I’m currently rereading one of my favorite books, Lee Strobel’s The Case for a Creator. Maybe I’ll make more pages to cover all my favorite parts of the book.

I used to think that science and faith are incompatible. It’s not something I verbalize or look closer into. I just grew up shrinking away from all the unpleasantness that usually came with the topic. At church, most of the preachers I listened to talked about science as if it’s the enemy to faith. I personally didn’t give it too much thought. I kept science and faith in separate compartments, so to speak. Until I read this book. After the first time I read it, I find myself rereading every once in a while. All the details about the world around us are just mesmerizing and awe-inspiring. Everything from the delicately choreographed orbits of the planets around us to the information written in every single cell in our body…all of it amazes me. The more I learn about the world through science, the more I learn about the Creator, and the more worshipful my heart becomes.

Rape Culture 101

Here is my journal entry yesterday. It’s very disheartening when I come across people online and in real life who still have such a narrow understanding on victims’ rights and how society perpetuates rape culture. It’s oftentimes frustrating to talk to people whose minds and ways are set, but for the sake of working towards a safer world for my pumpkins, I try to be patient when I engage people who have such archaic beliefs about this.
