In case you too had never thought about what baby ostriches looked like

ET302 crash, racism

Important to think about which tragedies we “care” about, and why: “Racist myths challenge the basic tenets of human compassion, even and especially in death. If black people are innately violent, if Africans live on an inherently backwards continent with fundamentally shoddy airlines, then their deaths are not tragedies. They are eventualities. They are facts, not stories.”

Happy International Women’s Day. Thankful for the strong women who have gone before and paved the way.

Ash Wednesday 

For those that hold this day as special, let us wait in the knowledge of what we have become and what we are becoming, individually and collectively.

Also remember always to use spell check before you print your bulletin! 😂😂😂

Last night we read a book called “ish” and this morning my 7yo declared that today is “Ish Wednesday.” That felt like an appropriate translation of the religious education I have given him.

This is Jinx. She's only been with us for 2.5 weeks, and already she's changed our lives for the better.

Okay, so I just figured out that is a thing. So you all should meet Mabel. You will be seeing lots of her in the feed because she's the cutest.

My mom has surgery this week so sleeping at her house. This is her cat, but she is my current roommate, so that qualifies right?

Harry potter/Enneagram 

@drew @KevinRB from what I’ve seen/read/studied, the HP houses & Enneagram would look somewhat like this:
Ravenclaw - 1 and 5
Hufflepuff - 2, 6, and 9
Slytherin - 3 and 8
Gryffindor - 4 and 7

Looking for good documentaries! Any suggestions?

I facilitate a docu-discussion evening for people in my church. We watch a documentary and then discuss.
- Looking for docs that help us see the world in new ways
- social issues
- Preferably not “Christian” docs but I’m open. If it’s like the Liturgists it’s all good.
- The church group is open and not much would be out of bounds.

This is a great read on the persistence of colonialist idealism and Western entitlement.
