What is the Real Problem in the World? Is it You or Them?
Donald Miller

Years ago I wrote a popular essay about how I discovered that I am the real problem in the world. It was a major epiphany for me. The problem was within me and within you, too. My essay went on to discuss a theological understanding of the idea, namely we are all fallen creatures, desperate to be reunited with our maker.

Years later I met Tom Shadyac and was delighted to find he’d taken a philosophical treatment of this realization far, and had even turned it into a film. Tom has his own faith and it…

How My Faith Has Changed Since “Blue Like Jazz”
Donald Miller

Yesterday I had lunch with a new friend and the conversation came around to faith, to how my beliefs have changed since I wrote the book Blue Like Jazz. I thought perhaps I’d blog about it and turn it into a recurring series. My faith has indeed changed. In ways, it’s become more clear, and in other ways, much more indefinable.

Here are a few ways my faith has changed…

But here’s a tip:
Stop believing the secret is to just “follow your passions.” People will tell you that and you’ll believe them. But it’s not entirely true.

The Beauty That is Born in Death, A Story About Redemption in Suffering
Jeff Goins

In the spring of Junior year in high school, my friend Doug died. We weren’t close friends, but in a graduating class of sixty-five students, losing one was enough to turn your world upside down.

Doug was part of the preppy group, and I was part of the group Doug’s friends made fun of. He wore Abercrombie & Fitch, hung out with jocks, and caught the attention of more than a few girls. I wore baggy T-shirts, befriended band geeks, and was a wallflower at school dances, lamenting, “When are they gonna play some Pearl Jam?”

We weren’t that much alike, Doug and I, but we’d known each other for nearly eight years, which was long enough for me to…

I’ve had a couple friends speak into my life who changed it dramatically. Both of them told me something on the same theme: “Don, you are good at relationships.”

At the time, I thought nothing could be further from the truth. I was going through a painful breakup in which I’d made enormous mistakes. I was terrible at relationships.

Today, though, I no longer believe this is true. And partly, I don’t believe it’s true because I had friends around me who refused to see me in black and white or good vs evil terms. They saw my…
