I’d like to thank all of you who have expressed your support over the last week as I attempt to articulate my thoughts on the relationship between Christianity and Islam. There have been those who have applauded my efforts and have encouraged me to keep going. But the one person I would like to thank most is the anonymous email sent to me calling me a heretic.
At the risk of sounding pretentious, I’d like to make a statement: Music is better on vinyl.
The Gospels relay Jesus’ capacity to speak the truth in love. As He went into a Jewish synagogue, Jesus was met by a man with a shriveled hand. When He healed the man, He was met with accusations of impropriety and criminal behavior.

Getting from class to class on time can be tough, especially if you’re walking.

My name is Micah Furlong, and I’m a Jewish Christian.
Growing up as an Army brat, I didn’t have a normal childhood. Our family tables were often missing one person, moving was a constant hassle, and most importantly, schools and friendships were a come-and-go situation.

It’s that time of year again. Cue the frantic scramble of people on the hunt for a Halloween costume that is the perfect combination of current yet witty, and clever without being obscure. A costume that guarantees a conversation wherever you go. Over the years, to ensure such a getup, people have worked to push the boundaries.
