wow - what a cool piece. ‘actions speak louder than words’ has never made so much sense. pretty sure jack levison and him would get along really well. honesty and gusto.
who cares if he is insulting or ill-tempered, the very disenchantment with humanity is exactly what seems to inspire him. a down to earth picture of someone choosing to make a difference. but is that enough? are actions enough to impart hope?
the beauty of being in boise means telling you i’m finally enjoying a day of most reading and relaxing, while leaving out the part about being in a moxie java, in the middle of nowheresville, all morning.
Amidst the terror, desperation and sheer devastation of the situation in Japan, hope is being found. My heart is constantly being broken by the news and images I see concerning Japan, but reading this has brought me hope. I know this is may be old news, but I just heard about it. I can’t imagine how much hope it has brought to those who have been rummaging through the rubble for days looking for survivors. It is as if this is God reminding us that He is still here. Goodness, hope and life can be found in the deepest and darkest of places. God can be found in the deepest and darkest of places. Let us not lose hope, but instead continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in Japan. Let us trust in the knowledge that God is good, even when we cannot find goodness. May God bless Japan.
day two - longview, wa for a night with ty’s parents.
the drive was truly beautiful - tunes, conversation, sunshine, moltmann. took turns with new rob bell book and this month’s relevant. at one point we were just blasting the new track on the re-released head and the heart album, and we couldn’t find the entrance to the highway but it just didn’t even matter - huge smiles on our faces driving down some side street in the middle of everett.
there is something so rejuvenating about a haircut! done with finals and nothing in front of me but relaxation and decompression - its as if i shed all the weight of an entire quarter within a few short minutes. So symbolic - spring break is finally here and it feels (looks?) great!
