WILD GOOSE FESTIVAL : SYNTHESIZERS R the FUTURE!

"Give Me Your Hand" and we'll walk...

Life together is way better then life isolated.  I know, I was a hermit for two years.  Sort of.  I lived 15 minutes out into the mountains west of Woodland Park, far enough to feel like it was sort of a big deal to go into town.  I remember some of the best feelings I had two years into that season were driving out of my neighborhood at the invitation of…

"Your Bride" Is Beautiful

Your Bride, she’s beautiful when…

She opens her eyes…

She’s been purified…

She sings Your songs…

Of deliverance…

The Bride, the Church with a capital “C” is a beautiful thing.  She encompasses more then we know here in the West, containing a beauty that would be utterly foreign to us if we were confronted with her one morning over a cup of…

A Vanishing God

Jesus often comes to us in unexpected ways and unexpected means.

 

Think about how He came to Earth. For centuries, Israel had waited for a political Messiah. They expected Him to lead a rebellion and free Israel from Roman oppression. But how did the Messiah make His entrance? He came in a way that made it easy for His own people to reject Him. He came as a frail baby, born in a feeding room for animals. There He was. The promised Messiah who was expected to overthrow the…

journey-taith

i help facilitate an arts group called 'diverse manners'. we're based in newport, wales. last weekend i helped set up an art exhibition in a little welsh town called brecon. the show is called 'journey-taith' - taith is the welsh word for 'journey'. superficially, the exhibition doesn't exactly qualify as story, play or song, but all three of these activities have helped to shape the show.
i've added some photos - take a look if you…

I'm in love with the calm

I'm in Love with the calm









The Ocean is calm today

The wind is no more

The tide tries to reach my feet

But it cannot push that far...



I'm in love with the calm, it soothes my dreaming soul

It gives my mind a chance to view the world as peace,

As unified...as whole.

I'm in love with the calm.



The children; my children, dancing in the break

They splash; the foam, saltwater,

They dance at the… Continue

Luther and Worship and Aesthetics

So my friend Todd Fadel has continually challenged me and my friends and pretty much everyone he comes across to re-evaluate our perception of what worship is...does it have to have a kick drum going through a sub, does it have to have washed out ebow guitars, does it have to have a minor chord, does it have to be led by a man? Gross questions I know, but there seems to be a branding of what "brings people into worship." Far from a simple annoyance,… Continue

Samhain, community, and drinking from the well

Last night Annie and I attended a beautiful Samhain celebration at the St Peter and Paul Episcopal Church, along with some other Bridgers. It was a wonderfully welcoming and enriching affair, consisting of food, drink, drumming, storytelling, and a liturgy to end the evening. The Rector, Kurt, talked a bit about the significance of Samhain (pronounced SOW-in): it's the beginning of winter, the "thin time" where resources are thin and also thin is the veil between worlds--a time where we can… Continue

SOMETHING TO PONDER..

“There is plenty of courage among us for the abstract but not for the concrete.” - Helen Keller

“Love, like truth and beauty, is concrete. Love is not fundamentally a sweet feeling; not, at heart, a matter of sentiment, attachment, or being "drawn toward." Love is active, effective, a matter of making reciprocal and mutually beneficial relation with one's friends and enemies. Love creates righteousness, or justice, here on earth. To make love is to make justice. As advocates and activists for justice know, loving involves struggle, resistance, risk.” - Carter Heyward
