I am reading . . . a variety of opinions on gay issues, including the apology from Exodus, responses about DOMA, opposite angles from Emily Wierenga (update: Emily’s link no longer active) and Rachel Held Evans, and re-reading sections of Torn.
I am thinking . . . how generous believers would seem if we took Jesus’s advice and spoke respectfully to each other despite our disagreements
I am watching . . . God bless America? He already has. The Nooma video “Rich” by Rob Bell:
I am thankful for . . . but also overwhelmed by the multiple places we keep our digital photos, music, documents, etc.
I am discovering . . . that The Old Reader instead of Feedly may be my favorite substitute for Google Reader
I am memorizing . . . (well, refreshing) the Lord’s Prayer per our Memory Classics schedule
I am praying . . . for my friends traveling to El Salvador next week and sad that I won’t get to see my Salvadorian friends this summer
I am looking forward to . . . Outdoor Church tomorrow
I am pondering these words . . . in Help Thanks Wow by Anne Lamott (an excellent book!) by the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore:
I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was service.
I acted and behold, service was joy.
One of my favorite things . . . about our New York trip last week was experiencing The Lion King on Broadway. Rafiki (well, everything) was phenomenal.
I am realizing . . . maybe my fear of heights is easing up since I wasn’t too scared at the top of the Empire State Building and not at all walking on the Brooklyn Bridge
A picture for thought . . . what I found atop the Brooklyn Bridge
