“To live by grace means to acknowledge my whole life story, the light side and the dark. In admitting my shadow side I learn who I am and what God's grace means.”
― Brennan Manning

An Easter deconstruction poem, for anyone who might need it this weekend ❤️

I thought fellow doubters, questioners, and skeptics might like this, especially as Easter approaches!

Listening to the "What I'm Learning" episode of The Liturgists, it's not even 8am, and I'm already crying.

@vishnu You have to be a certain kind of brilliant to successfully use pig orgasms, warm nuts, and cow farts in a book about spirituality. Thank you for THIS. 😁

@WolfDreamer I lived in Paris for 14 years. All three of my children were born there. I cannot tell you what it means that Notre-Dame is burning. I feel grief and horror at the images. Something iconic and beautiful is being consumed by fire. A place that has been visited and cherished by so many people over so many years, the symbolic heart of the capital, is suffering. And those who call themselves Parisians with it.

The Notre Dame cathedral is on fire right now, and my brain is torn. The strongest feeling is heartbreak, but there is also part of me that feels a strong sense of symbolism as the fire (likely due to renovations) consumes such an important icon that has captivated the hearts of so many.

@vishnu How dare you assume what my voice sounds like! 😂 Although you are pretty good at reading my mind. 😁

I genuinely believe that an evening of coffee, conversation, and great music with William Matthews and Leon Bridges would be life changing. Anyone want to help me make that happen? 😁

@vishnu I can deeply relate to the story you tell about truly feeling the cold. I dont hide from cold or hot because I want to feel it, not avoid it.

Hey all. My wife has undertaken a new project to lift the profile of our town. If you could check it out and maybe leave a comment that would be super awesome. Please boost if you'd be so kind.

If you want to learn the piano, you have to do your scales.

To me, the Old Testament is practicing scales, then Jesus shows up and says "I want to dance, play me a song." And the religious folks respond with scales.

"No! Not scales! I mean music from the heart I gave you," Says Jesus.

Then someone bangs out a tune and is called a heretic and unbeliever by the religious scale-players.

I've learned my scales, thank you very much. I want to make music and see Jesus dance.

The first service one owes to others in a community involves listening to them. Just as our love for God begins with listening to God’s Word, the beginning of love for others is learning to listen to them. God’s love for us is shown by the fact that God not only gives God’s Word but also lends us God’s ear. 

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The author of one of my favorite books asked me to review and give feedback on his not-yet-published new book. Like right now I have access to a Google docs copy of his new book. How cool is that?!

Which means @mike @vishnu @hillarymcbride @Lisagungor keep me in mind when you're working on your next book! 😁

@mike I finally finished Finding God in the Waves!
