Wednesday dinner plans?
The church that builds together... 😊 movable walls in progress...
Hey everyone! Some of us will be meeting at the church tomorrow (Friday) night around 7pm to make signs for Saturday morning's protest. Everyone is welcome!
Apropos of our conversation yesterday.
"I hear the words of the emperor-philosopher Marcus Aurelius, “We were born for cooperation, like feet, like hands, like eyelids, like the rows of upper and lower teeth,” which suggest that an individual cannot act in a fully human way without trusting other people just as one foot, hand, eyelid or tooth cannot walk, wash dishes, blink or chew on its own. We magnify our powers through trust in others, and we atrophy them through distrust. The solution to broken trust caused by gun violence may be investing more trust in each other, which is intuitive and counterintuitive at the same time."
If I wanted to visit y’all when would be a good time and how would I find the location?
I'm going to be out at the end of April, so I need someone to fill in. This is the tool I use. You can too!

An emergent community of faith in the Oak Cliff neighborhood in Dallas Church in the Cliff is an inclusive and affirming community where all are welcome.

We are a theologically and socially progressive Christian church where questions, dialogue, and justice-making are at the heart of our identity. At most of our gatherings, you’ll find people sharing food and conversation, as we seek to celebrate and create beauty in art, nature, the world and each other. We are located in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, TX. We meet at 11am on Sunday mornings. Hope to see you there! We have a closed group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/churchinthecliff/
Join it to stay in touch with the community!

Paul Zach, Orlando Palmer, and I took the lyrics of this Woodie Guthrie classics and have it a modern tone. Recorded at Trinity Church in Charlottesville, VA.

From Woodie or whoever created his wiki page:

"This song is Copyrighted in U.S., under Seal of Copyright # 154085, for a period of 28 years, and anybody caught singin it without our permission, will be mighty good friends of ourn, cause we don't give a dern. Publish it. Write it. Sing it. Swing to it. Yodel it. We wrote it, that's all we wanted to do." - Woodie Guthrie or whoever created his Wiki page.

Our lyrics:

This land is your land
This land is my land
From California
To the Texas border
Through the Juarez mountains
With the migrant caravans
This land was made for you and me

This land is your land
This land is my land
From the Piers of Charleston
To the fields of cotton
From the crowded prisons
To the streets of Ferguson
This land was made for you and me

This land is your land
This land is my land
From the Jamestown landing
To Lakota badlands
From the trail of tears to
the reservations
This land was made for you and me

02/27/2020

Since Christmas I’ve had
A lot of gras weeks.
I consume and consume and end up hungry,
even if I’ve packed it on my waist
and my calendar.
When we ate up the
sweets and drank the wine last night,
it was more than a Tuesday
celebration.

It’s the end, I hope,
of a carnival of running away
of eating, talking, working, playing,
worrying too much—
All those things... gras things,
that keep me from the essential,
from the scant, spare
lentiness
that can name in my life
what is lasting...
and what is ash.
Adapted from “Gras” by Maren Tirabassi
