Nourishment for Hard Times

By: Gabriela Yareliz Where We Are What does it look like to confront moments of uncertainty? We all do it, day after day. I was listening to a doctor on a podcast who is temporarily staying in Harlem, and she was talking about how there is a depressive cloud over NYC. The subways are silent.Continue reading “Nourishment for Hard Times”

Go in Peace

By: Gabriela Yareliz I think we have all found ourselves in certain types of prison in 2020, and by this I mean a place that confines us, where we feel up against a wall. Maybe our wings feel clipped. Maybe we feel afraid. I have been reflecting on all the pain people around me areContinue reading “Go in Peace”

This Past Season

Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Meera

By: Gabriela Yareliz NOTE: This is a character and movie analysis so: Spoiler Alert. Yash Chopra made his last film a deeply religious one.

Despite all of the bad

Even if that is true… Never doubt God’s goodness. “But my God shall supply ALL your need according to His riches in glory by Jesus Christ.” Philippians 4:19 “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” 1 John 3:22 “AndContinue reading “Despite all of the bad”
