Unnecessary Excitement!

Proving he's okay...

Long story short, Horrible Child had an adventure. Rest of the tale here.

An open letter to his Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI

Not by me -- this was written by my beloved Tim. He's asked that I ask my priestly and otherwise religiously-oriented peeps to have a look at it (that'd be all y'all, one way or t'other) and comment...but I figured posting it two days before Christmas would get me a solid not-much. So have a link...

A truly unique Eucharist. I love this tale.

Hopi Prophecy

Schwinked from a friend of mine.

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.
And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living? What are you doing?
What are your relationships? Are you in right relation?
Where is your water? Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
This could be a good time!
There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of
the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally.
Least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a
halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

–The Elders, Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation

That? That wants some thinkin'.
