LOVE IS CONCRETE

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 friends to share a meal and play a board game, nestled in a blanket with cocoa in one hand and dice in the other, prepared to absolutely lose perspective in the safety of deep friendship…the loss of perspective was usually a direct result of one of these treasured friends doing something unforgivable on the Settlers of Catan board, haha!

Yes, these were the moments I treasured as my hermitage was winding down.

Psalm 133 says “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!”  This song was written from the perspective of community, from a Psalm that is rare in it’s communal focus.  The last section of the song simply says that no one is too far from the Love of God for Him to redeem and pull home.

Hope you like this crazy version.  It’ll be finished and mixed for the (I know, too many records!) Buffalo album due out in December.

WILD GOOSE FESTIVAL : SYNTHESIZERS R the FUTURE!

HERE are some random thoughts about stuff: In 2009, my family and I took our first trip to Greenbelt.  We didn't just *go* to Greenbelt, we DID GREENBELT. A group of friends came along and joined us as we modeled our unique articulations of community and playful collaboration.  Before we went, the festival had seemed to us to be a bit enigmatic, shrouded 'neath an imaginary cloud of the…See More

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
