Watching and Waiting- A Few Random Thoughts.
I've seen this video on several sites and it's definitely worth watching.
Xu Bing and the Phoenix.
The reality of the lives of migrants workers in China is grim. For this man to see, truly see them is amazing. We had many migrant workers in our city in China and their living conditions were terrible.
John Blase at the Beautiful Due The Beautiful Due and Winn Collier at http://winncollier.com/ are doing parallel posts on Advent. Really beautiful.
I saw a post on Pinterest for black bean fudge- sugar free, gluten free and dairy free. That isn't hard to say no to at all. Yuck. What's the point?
The other day I got an e-mail from a student that said he couldn't come to class because he was "suck and tried." Aren't we all?
Another student apologized for not coming to class by saying "I am sorry for you." It's so rare that someone is sorry for me that I accepted the apology.
We actually had some snow here. Not much but enough to make the roads slippery. I couldn't get on the highway to get to work, because there was an accident that completely blocked the way. So I had a Snow Day. What is it about an unexpected day off that makes it feel like a week off? It was lovely.
I am reading Return to Our Senses: Re-imagining How We Pray by Christine Sine. It's a lovely book that is causing me to go deeper into prayer in so many ways. It's a mix between traditional and contemplative practices and it's so beautifully written. It's available on Amazon and also the Mustard Seed Associates website.
