These Everyday Objects Manually Transformed Into Functional Film Cameras are very post-apocalyptic, but also make me hungry.
The Learning/Doing Gap is a really, really, good post by Seth Godin that explores modern-day education.
In the middle of all this doing, this constant doing, we might benefit from learning to do it better. -Seth Godin

I started a conversation in my stories (later in highlights) about giving and how we can give ethically. But this question came to mind when I was thinking about giving. . Does charity make sense without philanthropy? Because helping immediate needs is great, and I think there is a place for it, but if non-profits and people aren’t also committed to uprooting the causes of these needs, then we are putting bandaids on cancer. Our efforts can’t stop at temporary relief for systemic problems. The commitment has to go beyond buying a meal and toward ending poverty in the world. . What does it mean to bring heaven to earth? What does the Kingdom of Heaven look like here on earth? I remember being in conversations where people argued that any efforts that didn’t convert people to Christianity where just efforts to send people to hell but fat, and I don’t believe in that at all. Eternity and the logistics of it all are beyond my scope of expertise and understanding (since no human knows what happens on the other side of death). I don’t know what will happen after we die, I don’t know how every person will spend eternity, all I have the power to have an effect on is life on earth. Changing systemic problems doesn’t change a person but generations upon generations of people, so in a way, philanthropic efforts done right are eternal work. If I break cycles of poverty in a family the next generation will be closer to experiencing heaven on earth, if I help people deal with their trauma then their children won’t have to deal with it. If I focus on uprooting systems then heaven is more at hand for those that come behind. . What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear.
This Instagram post poses a lot of important and necessary questions that we all, as believers, have to ask ourselves.
Sadly (thankfully?), it’s not a real cruise.
Love the people around you.

Did he rethink that Tweet? I gotta know.
Ever since Stan Lee died, @Marvel’s been reprinting some of his old “soapbox” columns in their monthly comics. This month, they ran one of the best things he ever wrote, from November 1968. pic.twitter.com/5fRwmteXnX

Stan Lee was the real hero.
This article doesn't state that the internet is good or evil. It doesn't state that the world was better before it. It just states that it was different. Because it was. https://t.co/mnQNRd9Ro1

Someone went to the trouble of making this meme-then misquoted my actual poem
"Lightsabers are red- Lightsabers are blue-
By chance you find mine- Return the hand too"
Not to nitpick, but adding the word "any' doesn't scan right & ruins the rhythm. #ItsTheThoughtThatCounts 🔪✋ pic.twitter.com/8LNpQYxWsm
