Religions try to move people to God. I try to shine a light on truth.
The Spirituality Series features easy to read, concise stories centered on spiritual relationships as a part of our humanity.
Our name Spiritual Christianity describes our belief and understanding, which is grounded in the spirit of Christ Jesus. The focus of our sharing is rooted in the roles and purposes of God's Holy Spirit being from Jesus Christ and active in our lives.

"I lay in Zion a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame."
There are two overlapping paths in each life. One practical, one esoteric. One material, one spiritual. One self centered, one of service.
For searchers on every avenue of endeavor there are times of decision as to how and what one’s response will be. This is no less true for the Christian.
With temptations and morsels of pleasure or power to divert our spiritual attentions with heartfelt desires, the wiles of the world takes potshots at each believer.
This book is about moments of decision when once more we are righted and about to take our next step after being pulled, pushed or voluntarily leaving the believer's walk.
May these musings help strengthen your resolve to walk a little further down the path of spiritual learning and growth.
"I've been reading at least one poem a day. When I first picked up the book, I thought I wasn't going to like it but it's proven me wrong. The author's insight, feelings, and wisdom come through in his poetry."

"And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground."
One of the great struggles for each Christian is the double edge sword of discipleship.
Life is full of struggle and we each experience trouble and heartbreak. Jesus advised of this reality in His sermons and parable teachings while giving guidance or instruction as to our human conditions. In the Gospels he proclaims, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow me.” It is here we find the answer which many Christians miss, others search for, and most grapple with. True Christian belief and discipleship is grounded in the principle of daily denying of self and daily living in obedience to God’s Word through the examples, thoughts, words and deeds of Jesus the Christ.
When the Christian comes to realize and understand this it frees him or her to look for and learn a different way to live; in response to God's desires for us and at peace with ourselves and others.
"I wanted you to know I received the book on Friday. I devoured it, thank you. I love your book."

"I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction."
A Crucible is most notably a vessel in which substances are subjected to intense temperatures in a process of refinement, thus burning away impurities while producing a newer more viable creation. It is a severe condition whereby different elements react resulting in a new born identity. This is also the case for the new believer or neophyte Christian, as different aspects of matter and spirit are combined to bring about a new creation through Christ.
For the searching and struggling individual who has come to Christianity with an open heart and mind believing all has been righted and there will be clear sailing ahead, realities may produce a trauma as startling as a wooden club to the forehead. Crucibles helps eliminate these experiences or fears.
May these thoughts of refinement produce uplifting solace and fortitude for every Neophyte believer discouraged by the afflictions of Christianity’s new found trials and tests.
“I thought this was a delightful collection of poems geared for New Christians.”
“I read this more like you would read a devotional. It was lovely!”
“I just received my copy today and I sat down and read it. But this is not the kind of book that you read all in one sitting. I was blessed to receive a previous book of Branch's and now I am doubly blessed, as this book of poetry touches me even more.”
