eagle’s flight – 8th Day of Creation Musings – 10/5/17

In trying to find a way to live and love well in such a time as this I keep coming back to:
 
I love because God first loves me
 
I am called / commanded to love God back
I am called / commanded to love my neighbor just as I love myself
 
and that all the other law, prophets and musings on what is the right way to live hang from these 2 commandments.
So somehow love needs to be what all our our talk and actions hang from.
 
In these days of lies and misleading statements and actions with love given lip service but being largely left out as weak and cheap, it’s a bit hard to see how love could overcome the barrage that is driven by money power and desire for ME and MINE at any cost.

endings and beginnings – hazy beginning – 6/8/13

In my off work hours, I’ve been asking various people who might know, what God’s doing with the Millennial’s. I have daughters and their friends, (and even a few of my own) that I can ask such questions of and they think I’m serious. So I was quite impressed with the simply authentic tone of this convocation address: “The Authority of Apology” by Nadia Bolz Weber (a sarcastic Lutheran). It struck a chord in me and I was willing to drop everything and play with it for a few hours. May the play continue. Continue reading
