Welcome to AlwaysRejoicing. This site is “officially launched” as of 1 July 2019. So, it will most likely have a couple of ‘bugs’ in it. Please forgive me for them & also tell me about them in a comment. I will get them fixed as quickly as I can.
So, what is Always Rejoicing? Mostly, it’s stories, essays and poems. Here you will find among the fairy tales and crazy opinion, I hope, a place with the sort of content that brings “JOY”.
This is not a comedy site. You may find some humor here. You may even find a bad pun. But that’s not “JOY”. Things that we view as “funny” vary with individuals and with culture. “JOY” is not an emotion. It is a spiritual state. It is that place where we feel Heaven. It’s what St. Paul meant when he told the Philippians (Chapter 4 verse 4) to “rejoice in the Lord, always”.
Pagans, I’m not going to force Christianity on you. Feel free to read the stories and essays posted here with complete confidence that you can, with diligence, maintain your pagan notions. However, if you do stumble into Truth and decide to seek Jesus, that’s a bonus for you!
In addition to the stories and stuff, there are two other parts to AlwaysRejoicing. The second part is called “ForeverStone” where you can find unsubstantiated opinion on of the state of THE CHURCH. Third, there is a Bible Study. On the left of this page is a box with links to these and other websites of interest.
Comments are encouraged. You will have to register in order to post a comment. That’s just to protect this site from “Agents of Chaos”.
Finally, I would like to emphasize that everything posted here is fiction or my personal opinion. The stories that are based on Biblical events and characters are fiction. While I make every effort to reflect what the Bible says, I am using “poetic license” in order to tell the story. Enjoy the stories and other items I have written just as you enjoy the tales about the Three Pigs or Chicken Little. If you do find spiritual advice in them, please confirm that advice with Holy Scripture.
