Broad Place

some weeks suck more than others
which i'm sure you already know

for those weeks there's this:

he reached down from on high; he took me
he drew me out of  mighty waters...
he brought me out into a broad place;
he delivered me, because he delighted in me

~Psalm 18

Hit my inbox

A caveat before posting... I'm in the middle of a search process for a new pastor call.  I've directed a lot of people to this blog.  I've received advice to watch what I post. 

So if you're here, checking me out, and this post makes you uncomfortable, I'd ask you to read more of my posts instead of writing me off.  Maybe you might ask yourself why you are uncomfortable. Maybe you might address me directly with your concerns rather than just ghosting. 

And if not, if this is all too much, then wipe the dust.  Jesus said you could. 

The tensions these last weeks could be summed up in these fucked up scriptures:
Genesis 3:16-17

I'd really like to have a conversation about what our music was/is like, what our literature was/is like, what our romance novels/erotic literature/porn/whatever gets you off was/is like, what our movies/tv/plays was/is like.

what happens
when your body itself
the thin place
and your
if you will
moves between
here and there
what is and what isn't
hope and despair
yesterday and tomorrow
and today has all the fixity
of school glue
