People always ask what my religion is

(via chialyn)



Who are these who sing Alleluia

and call risen, risen, indeed


dead long ago

whose words are so often amulets

against the necessary struggles


as if any words alone could:

love against all odds

sing with the lunatic

reveal the nakedness of power

deliver the dispossessed to choices again

turn hope’s prism for the blind to marvel

smooth hard places into feather beds for the broken

wrest from nothing and no way

      the chance for children to grow whole

stretch easy the backs that bear the work

bless all the world with our lives

            lived forgiving, alert for love


What fools, indeed,

who may never even discuss divinity

or agree on how much room there is anywhere

      for angels, again, to dance

but who

in their ancient poetry

with its curious syntax   and

in their reckless yearning insist


love never dies

survives after the grave   even here

and claims us    yes, now

and will not ever let us go.

We are raising funds at CUC by making and selling lunches. The funds will go to our local food pantry to help feed hungry children through the weekend snack pack program. We are helping change lives of school children.

There’s some pretty big news in my life. I have a new baby boy!! My son was born on April 8th and everyone is home, healthy and happy. :)

But for the arrival of this amazing new life, I had two very different car rides. The first ride of note was taking my wife, in labor, to the hospital. I…

Love this! What an excellent reminder.

Congratulations Andrew!


Together, we can raise the minimum wage and advance workers’ rights!

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief and unspeakable love.

This video that’s been sweeping through facebook is a beautiful meditation on the small things that can make real change in the world.

Love each other!

May we choose to use our freedom to spread love and peace throughout the world.
