I know what I’m wearing to the pride dance on Saturday 🌈💇‍♂️

‪May light perpetual shine on Penny. ‬

Fun fact about today’s gospel reading:
“Everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms” gives evidence of the canon of the Hebrew Bible. Law (Torah), Prophets, and Psalms/Writings (poetry & wisdom literature, plus Chronicles)

RHE funeral, feelings 

And likewise for your neighbor.
All of your neighbors.
Yes all of them.
Everybody.

RHE funeral, feelings 

‪You, the one reading this,‬
‪You are loved by God, right now and forever. There’s nothing you can do about it, so please, accept the gift 💝, accept the mystery, accept yourself, right now and forever. 🙏‬

‪Nothing like watching the funeral of a dearly loved sibling in Christ, the same age as me, to make me want to tell the things worth telling, before too late. ‬

What if, and hear me out,
what if Christians follow not the Bible but
(I know it’s gonna sound wild but maybe go with it!)
instead
Christians
follow

Jesus
The
Christ.

The clouds just south of me are doing something, but there’s no thunder.

thoughts on John 21 

‪My friend raised an EXCELLENT question “why was Peter naked?”‬
‪Some ideas:‬
‪+ maybe 1st C. fishing was clothing optional?‬
‪+ getting his tan back, to go fully back to his old job, i.e. leave the Jesus movement‬
‪+ wasn’t prepared to see Jesus‬
‪+ clothes on tocover shame, like Genesis 3‬

thoughts on John 21 

‪So Jesus’s triple question to Simon Peter‬
‪+ echoes & undoes Peter’s denial‬
‪+ echoes & repeats Jesus’s call to “follow me‬”
‪+ demonstrates that Jesus will provide everything needful to fulfill the command, “feed my sheep”.‬

thoughts on John 21 

‪In today’s gospel reading, Jesus is the master of callbacks. ‬
‪+ a charcoal fire, like the fire where Simon Peter denied Jesus 3 times‬
‪+ The sea of Tiberius/Galilee where Jesus originally called his first disciples‬
‪+ bread and fish, like feeding the 5000‬

‪I thought it was supposed to be /April/ showers. 😤☔️‬

‪A customer (from MI presumably) just mentioned the Maurice Salad and suddenly I’m v homesick. ‬

I literally just heard a guy on NPR refer to Thanos's elimination of half the universe as "The Snapture." 🤣
