From CNN to Mexico to Maras 18 and Back Again.

Posted by danaduanecraft on July 13, 2017 at 7:05 PM

While undergoing a pair of operations on my spine earlier in the summer I was able to watch some TV. Being forced into some bed-time actually provided some fruitful insights. I saw an episode of Reza Aslan’s CNN series, Believer, where he discussed Santa Muerte [Saint Death]. At issue is not the validity or controversy over this propagandists’ intentions, after all, out of the mouths of babes often comes some of the most revealing truths. Beyo...

Our Costly Entry into the Heavenly City

Posted by danaduanecraft on June 28, 2017 at 8:45 PM

Whenever someone is passing through a difficult or painful challenge it seems that there are always a large number of Christians who incorrectly focus at the end of the tunnel because they see the victory in overcoming and entering into the calm waters while fighting to ignore the actual struggle.

Hermana Noemy’s Story

Standing back, in the shadows of humility, behind those of her neighbors who were sitting atop the broken plastic stools or overturned cinderblocks, I remember seeing sister Noemy for the first time. Why? Even though she stood just far enough away to not draw attention to herself while yet remaining part of the group, I remember her n...

Earth 2.0...?

Posted by danaduanecraft on August 3, 2015 at 9:30 PM


Alien Life? So many questions, but, in the big picture, who cares? Unless you're living on another world, no one has missed the big story on NASA's discovery of, as they named, "Earth 2.0" -within minutes of their announcement came the usual questions about God and what does this mean for believers. As interesting and as captivating as these issues are, and they truly are fascinating, they have no...

Look Towards the Sleeping Face of Christ in Times of Trouble

Posted by danaduanecraft on August 3, 2015 at 8:00 PM


“… A Great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that boat was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on the cushion” (Mk. 4:38).

The Lord gives us our daily bread afresh each day (Mt. 6:11) while rarely, if ever, providing for tomorrow’s bread today (Ex 16:16-21). Our wonderful Lord seems to apply this same ̶...
