May I let my voice be a clarion call. I will use these words for justice. I will use these words for truth. And humour.

First sermon: associating thought with angels

music: Billy Bragg and Wilco -- Way Over Yonder in the Minor Key

colors: blue, violet, white

mood: stressed

i'm working on my first sermon for intro to preaching today. it's due tomorrow. i've been working on it for a couple weeks, but it's been a doozie to bring together. i think i'm trying to bring too many ingredients to the table, including angels, mack trucks, jacob wrestling uriel, harmonics, l. ron hubbard, kierkegaard, the state of the world, process theology, and how misunderstandings about the very nature of thought itself are at the root of suffering.

crank it, ship it.

pax hominibus,

"And so, Theodore Donald Karabotsos, in accordance with what we think your dying wishes might well have been, we commit your final mortal remains to the bosom of the Pacific Ocean"

Good luck with the sermon. If anyone can tie all those elements together into a coherent narrative, it's you. :)
Be as simple as you can without being simplistic.
