Precious essay on NPR & Christianity

I know they hate us because we are beautiful, but it's just our call to love them anyway. Maybe they'll figure it out, maybe they won't, we just have to answer our call.

miracalously good daily reading

Lent is unusually powerful this year because so many of us have so much to repent. But, and I"m certified crazy so who really knows, I think the Republicans are finding some shame. Alan Colmes stood up to Ann Coulter - if that's not an apocolypse, then what is? Shame and repentence and remission of sins and redemption - Easter will be here soon. There will be balm in Gilead.

Another Gilead Review - I've posted other good ones as well

I must read this book, and I'd really like to become a Marilynne Robinson groupie.

Sure, I'm crazy - what's your point?

I love this discussion - the struggle is delicious - a sweet religious buzz - like a zen buddhist koan. And look you atheists get the same kind of buzz off of it that we do. For me, the non-negotiable part of Christianity is love God and love neighbor. It's a tense struggle, and we all have to face it one way or another. I don't think any of this struggle threatens you.

kinda reminds me of

I'm grateful to post the psalms even if no one ever reads my blog because it's here and I read it and it's beautiful and that makes no sense.

Psalm 84:1-12
1How lovely is your dwelling place,
O LORD of hosts!
2My soul longs, indeed it faints
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh sing for joy
to the living God.
3Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O LORD of hosts,
my King and my God.
4Happy are those who live in your house,
ever singing your praise.
5Happy are those whose strength is in you,
in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
6As they go through the valley of Baca
they make it a place of springs;
the early rain also covers it with pools.
7They go from strength to strength;
the God of gods will be seen in Zion.
8O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob!
9Behold our shield, O God;
look on the face of your anointed.
10For a day in your courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than live in the tents of wickedness.
11For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
he bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does the LORD withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
12O LORD of hosts,
happy is everyone who trusts in you.
