An Evangelical Church planter came into my office last week wanting to connect with me. As politely as I coul, I told him that we couldn't really connect since he didn't support the ordination of women. He told me his views were nuanced. I bluntly pointed out there was nothing nuanced about saying LGBTQ+ folks couldn't get married and women couldn't preach. He sent me this in the mail as a thank you. Is it bribe money? #bribe #progressivechristianity #nothingnuanced

“O Lord, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.” - Ps 131 🍂 Unplugging for a few days and thinking about silence, and stillness, and listening. 🕯Advent is a time to wait & to listen very carefully. Advent is a time to stop moving, even just for a heartbeat. Advent is a gentle invitation to be unafraid (even when the angels are terrifying) and to trust (even when the words of God feel inscrutable). Advent is a time to stop telling stories about ourselves that might not be true, stop plugging our ears to the voice of our deepest soul, and to be still and listen. Sometimes we’re scared that if we stop to listen to God, God is waiting to holler “GOTCHA!” Beloved - God isn’t waiting to trap you. There may be some painful truths to walk through, but damn won’t you feel free, light, and more fully yourself on the other side. 🛤 Be brave. Be still. The wilderness won’t kill you.

“What would our church and society look like if we just remembered that Jesus was brown? If we were confronted with the reality that the body hung on the cross was a brown body: one broken, tortured, and publicly executed by an oppressive regime.” Robyn J.

today’s perfectly timed #goodwords from this gem, @annadimmel (who is actually my ex-husband’s first cousin) & a fellow-deep-thinker-deeply-feeling-divorcé-single-mom whom I respect & admire a lot 💕
.
.
"You are not the boss of others - you are only the boss of you". This is something I tell my girls ALL the time. But, sometimes I need the reminder myself. 🤦‍♀️
.
.
As much as I want to control the outcome of how others respond, it simply is not in my control. As much as I want to, I can't make people understand, agree, approve or even like me. It's just simply not in my power.
.
.
But, what is in my power is the ability to control myself. I can choose to be kind, loving and honest. I can choose the freedom of truth telling. I can choose to be brave and say hard things - even if that hard thing is scary. .
.
We can do ALL of these and even more because of the power that rumbles and dwells inside us. But, we must let go of how others respond. Because you are only the boss of you ❤

At the beginning of October this year, I decided to distribute my music on streaming platforms. Between Apple Music, Google Play, YouTube and Spotify, more and more people are listening to my music in this way. Here’s to a promising new year of being unmoored on the ocean of the cloud.

At ProgressiveChristianity.org we affirm that the teachings of Jesus provide but one of many ways to experience the Sacredness and Oneness of life, and that we can draw from diverse sources of wisdom in our spiritual journey. #progressivechristianity #pluralism #8pointsofprogressivechristianity #progressivetheology #wisdom
REVOLUTION begins in the mind. #GilScottHeron left us a legacy of wisdom... As I listened to him I thought of the passage from scripture where we are told TRANSFORMATION begins by renewing our mind (Romans 12:2). Are you focused on growth and change or stuck in stagnation and despair? ✨

Today young people across this country (w/ @sunrisemvmt) are demanding a #GreenNewDeal, policy placing people before profits, heart and soul centered, not rooted in greed, exclusion and fear. ✨

We are ALIVE not in a time of darkness but tremendous AWAKENING. And so the question which confronts each one of us EVERYDAY is what are WE DOING to resist the status quo and bloom into a new state of consciousness rooted in faith + action. How are putting yourself on the line? How can you SHOW up - whether it’s being vocal on social media, the picket line, organizing in your church or community? What can you do to BRING FORTH LIGHT? ✨

Excited to announce that @praywithourfeet will become a zine in 2019, with plans to expand our IG LIVES in the community through teach-ins. Stay tuned for more info. We must BE the CHANGE we wish to see! - #Gandhi ✨

I’m 43. It’s official. I made it to something that is so lackluster. These past few years have been years of doors closing. Closing and locking firmly behind them...Closing to never open again. These past few years have been about asking the question if God can still hear me...still use me...pull me back to the frontline of loving on people...And He has closed doors again and again. And opened a few here and there. And pulled me forward. And told me to leave the old me behind. This is 43. I woke up yesterday to the reality of being the mom of teenage boys, a preteen girl and a kindergartner. Twenty years of marriage soon to be under my belt. The know how to leave things and people behind...the things and people you shake the dust off your shoes as you walk away...I woke up knowing I was happy. That I have a group of people I love and who love me. I woke up warm and cozy and knowing the closed doors may just be my best life. Y’all. If you don’t know it today, let me promise you this, there are new doors ahead. There really are...There is the same Jesus who thinks you are worth it so much and He is walking with you past all the closed doors telling you to keep going...to trust Him...And the new doors...the really great ones are coming...This is 43. I’m believing today. I’m excited in a weird way. I’m hoping. Busy most of all, at 43, I’m still walking...maybe even running (a really slow run) to the doors up ahead. It’s just not over yet y’all. Not for me. Not for you either. I promise. And so does Jesus.

The kids at my church are just really cool. Today we lit the Advent candle of peace. One of the kids made this sign by photocopying a stole to use as the border. #advent #peace #childrensministry #christianeducation #progressivetheology #progressivechristianity #progressivechurch

This morning Paris is rather quiet. Though the demonstrations have now begun. We watch and wait, anticipate and pray; it seems fitting for this Advent moment. We hold the tension between light and dark with hope.

This beautiful image, captured by @paige_elisa with hand lettering by @inked_by_hand for the #painteddressproject is a relevant message for today. In the midst of suffering and darkness, our call remains consistent:
.
SPEAK LOVE.
BLESS PEOPLE.
GIVE GRACE.

8 months ago I offered a talk on prayer to a group of adolescent young adults. I said that prayer could be listening to a podcast, reading a book, singing a song, attending a liturgy, having a good belly laugh...for me prayer has often been poetry, theology, or writing...and those things can be prayer.  But they aren't right now.  They are the "room" I pray on or the "doorway" to a space that is prayer. These days I am drawn to solitude. I crave the engaged boredom that is solitude and quiet prayer. I have so few words and honestly so few insights. But most days lately find myself back in my chair quieting myself and just being boredly engaged (in Godself?) #prayer #prayerspace #solitude #silentprayer #cathomicprayer #progressivefaith #progressivecatholic #progressivechristianity #catholicadvent #advent #catholicfaith #catholiclife
