We all have stuff we’re passionate about
Could be anything from photography to rock climbing
to hand crafts to My Little Pony
Dude, get down with your groovy self
Connect with those who share in your passion
join the fellowship of the saints
You’re not alone, you are love
have fun stay safe
unlock the inner geek =)
and the glory.
Contemplating the servants of the Divine
the rich history
gives you a greater appreciation,
a holy community
to draw from when you feel alone
Verily you carry the seed of these heroes past!
Live in light of that ineffable truth.
You are strong
complicated but desiring to be known
You are here
you are loved
you are together
in this moment
If you are a bird, be a bird
If you are a cat, be a cat
If you are a wildebeest, be a freakin’ awesome wildebeest
Focus on what you are good at,
celebrate the diversity of others
Contemplate the platypus
We’re all weird and wonderful
in our own way
We put so much weight in things
Lucky socks and magic talismans
But it is not the things themselves
that make the difference,
but rather our belief in them,
and not only that
but also any power invested in them
by a Third Party.
Moses’ staff was just a staff
until touched by the hand of God.
Then it became a snake, a battle-winner
and a sea-splitter.
Anything can be amazing when
believed in and touched by the hand of the Divine.
So, believe in others, believe in yourself
and believe in God,
lift all things up to God,
so HE can work wonders in and through them.
We can’t look down on one another
We can’t just say, “rise” and consider that our part
We must either give each other a helping hand up
or lower ourselves down so we stand eye to eye.
True equality requires action,
not just words.
Sacrifice, humility, and encouragement
Shared power and access to resources:
These are the building blocks of a better tomorrow.
I believe in the humanity in us all
In its good and bad
In its potential
I choose to see the sunshine in our souls
Despite the darkness that occasionally comes
I believe we all bear the fingerprint of God
Beautiful and in need
of redemption and love
and companionship to carry us through
