Morning prayer for the 132nd annual general convention for the church to which I belong. Updating rules, electing new leaders, and dealing with budgets. Holy work isn't always fun. But it's foundational to the other stuff of following Jesus: breaking down walls, and standing for justice and righteousness, for example.

Frida Kahlo 'relaxing' maybe we should follow her example? Be still and know...

Remember the good old days when you could actually get the most important facts of a story right from the headline?

Today this story would be entitled, "You'll Never Believe What Happened When a Man Picked Up This Duck" along with a photo of an unrelated duck.

TFW you’re ready and willing to change although you're attached to systems that want to stay the same.

Do your thing, beloved ones. You’re looking fiery and beautiful.

Today on the feast of St Mary the Mother of God, read the Magnificat and reject any version of Mary that’s ever been used to make you feel small, quiet, or submit to the patriarchy. Her holiness was powerful, radical, conscious, and self determined. Hail, Mary, full of grace!

Taken 30 minutes ago a block from Chipotle downtown. A very Portland protest scene: Man rides unicycle across a street in front of a line of riot cops and flashing lights. On the sidewalk behind them at the right of the photo is a dumpster fire.

Radar image and skycam footage of the Tuscaloosa EF4 on 4.27.11. You never want to see a tornado signature like this coming at you. The next few days were a blur or chainsaws, sunburns, heavy lifting, and big hearts. Certainly the most surreal day of my years in Tuscaloosa, its aftermath inspired (at least temporarily) a remarkable display of intimate community and camaraderie. Roll Tide, Tuscaloosa.

I don't know about food banks everywhere, but in my area, there's some worry as need increases and supply chains are strained. Apart from donating to food banks and pressing your representatives about this issue, people can make a contribution here by not clearing out the stores. That is directly hitting the supplies food banks usually rely on: groceries close to sell by date
