Opening Minds Behind Bars: 

Education changes you. There is no possible way you can sit down and read and study and do papers and do research and not be changed, because when you come up out of there, you’ve gained so much that you just want to share it. So you start to look around for people to share it with.

It instills in us a confident belief that we can re-establish who we are. That’s monumental. It’s life-changing.

Post of the week from these parts here

… I’d swear the camel beside this guy grinned when he told me the actual secret of how to keep things standing when everything is kinda crashing down all around us.

This guy. This story. This Lent — this secret to keep things together is everything. It’s profoundly changing deep & honest things for me.

Thinking you need this as much as I desperately did. Upended, undone, streams in the desert.

on repeat this week: Nobody Loves Me Like You Love Me, Jesus

Because of the Cross
Wage Peace
wherever people are caught
in the crosshairs
of prejudice

Because of the Cross
Shake fists
Awake & into the long reaching open hands
of friendship
until we are the people Cross-shaped

Because of the Cross
Set aside
Divisive Talk
and set dinner tables
so you can sit across
from the Other
and look into their eyes until
you see Jesus.
