It’s Friyay! Hoping this Snack pack can put the “yay” into your Friday.
Marvel revealed massive Phase Four film and television plan AND I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED! I saw some of the casting for some of the films and I was even more excited.
Surprised Dandelions and Frustrated Erasers Come to Life in Delightful Illustrations and my favorite was definitely the pear and the apple in that first illustration because that’s me when I beg someone to rip off my bandaid for me.
Three wishes, is a great little post by the ever-thoughtful Seth Godin. Turns out we can be our own Genies.
This post on how and why Words Matter with Mental Health is something everyone should go read.
Better than an Instagram filter.

I was talking to a pastor once, challenging some of the things I saw in the church and I was asked if anybody had ever told me I’m rebellious. . -Yes, many people have said that. -Have you talked to God about that spirit of rebellion? -Yes, I sure have -What did HE say? -That I was created this way. That my rebellious spirit is what makes me me and has the purpose of changing things and bringing heaven down. -… . They can call us rebellious, difficult, jezebel, sensitive, awkward, complicated, heretics, dangerous, witches and even demonic. We know that we are flipping tables, dismantling power structures, fighting for the oppressed, standing with the marginalized, speaking truth to power, stepping into our divine nature and changing the world. . We don’t need to back down, we don’t need to shrink, we don’t need to behave “appropriately”. We need to take space, speak up, march forward, bust doors open, build our own tables… not because they say we can’t, but because this is who we are. . Let’s reclaim the labels and show the world what a rebel truly can do. Because a better world will be better for the ones who doubt us and minimize us too, they may not know it, or even see it in their lifetime, but we are fighting for their descendants too and they’ll be grateful we didn’t stop at a label. . . Ps. This isn’t just about women. This is about any person that has had to deal with other’s attempts to silence them with demeaning labels.

Love thy neighbor.
Thy homeless neighbor.
Thy addicted neighbor.
Thy Muslim neighbor.
Thy Jewish neighbor.
Thy Christian neighbor.
Thy immigrant neighbor.
Thy gay neighbor.
Thy atheist neighbor.
Love thy neighbor. No exceptions.

Love thy neighbor.
“Thank you for using gender inclusive language”
– a young woman passing me by Sunday after I preached.
It was such an easy thing for me to do, but her eyes said it was very meaningful to her to be seen and acknowledged.

I just feel like everyone should know this.
1. Christianity started out in Palestine as a community.
2. Moved to Greece became a philosophy.
3. Went to Rome became an institution.
4. Spread to Europe became a government
5. Came to America became an enterprise.
What might it take for us to return to community?

I’m still laughing over this.
everything you've ever done was done by a younger, more hopeful you who you no longer are.
everything you aspire to do needs to be done by an older, more experienced you who you aren't yet.
the paradox is that you will feel this way at every point in your entire life.
