About to be interviewed by Krista Tippett for On Being, at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. - broadcast date soon.
Out in the woods at Mississippi View Park north of our house. The ski trails are pretty much non existent but they have become a good place to run, pray, and yes, even to scream. The pain is still deep. But, today, there is some joy, some light. Today we celebrate Dr Martin Luther King Jr and the work of other leaders in the civil rights movement. One of those leaders is congressman, John Lewis. He was the first person to be beaten on "bloody Sunday," that day of march in Selma, Alabama. I heard this "remix" interview again on Krista Tippett's "On Being" radio show. To hear him say, "Hate is too heavy a burden to bear," to say what it took to be forgiving and loving in that time of pain, is powerful. As I listened to him I watched the sunrise on Sunday morning, a new day. And as I did John Lewis talked about not carrying hate and other negative emotions. I heard him talk about loving as Jesus would love. I found it rather ironic, or maybe a sign of the Spirit, that at the moment that the sun was rising .. ...
Speaking the World Into Being (tonight's drash) A few weeks ago, I was listening to one of my favorite NPR shows, called OnBeing. Every few weeks on OnBeing, the show's host, Krista Tippett, interviews theologians and religious leaders, physicists and poets, yogis and monastics, about meaning, faith, ethics and ideas. And about a month ago, Tippet interviewed a poet named Marie Howe. Howe, who comes from a very traditional Irish Catholic background is an acclaimed poet who often writes about spirituality, and faith. And in their conversation, Howe explained why, poetry, for her, is magical. This is what she said: “Well, poetry holds...what can't be said…It has the quality of a spell...” And Krista Tippett said, “Yes, it’s making magic with words.” And then Marie Howe said something surprising, and, I thought stunning: “For many of us, language is almost all we have left of action in the modern world. I mean unless we're in Syria, you know, or we're in Iraq. But for many of us, action has bec ...

The one I most want you to hear is Hector's story, on forgiveness. But I would encourage you to listen to the segments in the order they were served to me, because the experience deepens in each segment, and you really need a lead-in for Hector's story. After you listen, let me know what you think.

Transcript for Walter Brueggemann on The Prophetic Imagination December 22, 2011 Krista Tippett, Host: Walter Brueggemann is a distinctive and very special voice, a kind of rock star in his universe of knowledge. He is one of the world's great living teachers about the prophets who both anchor the Hebrew Bible and have transcended it in many places across history — a figure like Isaiah, whose words also echo throughout the New Testament as it's read at Christmastime. Sitting with Walter Brueggemann's passion and poetry is to experience both the fearless truth-telling and the fierce hope of the prophets he knows so well. And he seems to embody the quality he finds most astonishing in them — an ability to be transformative in a chaotic moment of history — to open up new ways of addressing what is at stake socially, politically, and religiously. Walter Brueggemann: It's so hard to do, but the task is reframing so that we can re-experience the social realities that are right in front of us. We exercise ...

As the media firestorm around Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson reaches its peak this Christmas season, I feel like I have to state publicly that his Christianity bears very little resemblance to my Christianity. Jesus, or the Bible in general for that matter, has very little to say about sexual immorality and for Robertson to state that "sexual immorality is number one on the list" of sins seems a perversion all its own. The only ranking Jesus makes of this sort that I can think of, off the top of my head, is when he's asked what the greatest commandment is. His response: "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” If all Christians did was follow those two commandments I think we'd see a lot less people turning away from the Church, and kicked off the A&E channel for that . ...

A teaser: Ms. Tippett: "I think also — I've thought about this a lot because I've done a lot of conversations across the years about some historic figures. I mean, people who changed the world usually were not — they often started in their 20s and, before everyone realized they'd changed the world, they drove everyone around them crazy, right?" Mr. Brueggemann: "That's right, that's right. [...] I think there are a lot of people who are not broadly famous who, in their own local circumstance, do transformative things..." Ms. Tippett: "...Are those good life-giving disruptive forces." Mr. Brueggemann: "That's exactly right."

I too love Krista Tippett and find this article a very effective reminder of what I promised myself years ago I would do but keep drifting away from.
I like the way Krista Tippett expresses herself. This is the first I've seen of her own opinions, outside of interviewing other people, and I find I also like the way she thinks!! I've been doing essentially this for a number of years, giving to charities in my gift recipient's names instead of shopping for obligatory gifts.
Krista Tippett articulates so well what I've been feeling for years.
I strongly concur with Krista Tippett's views on what Christmas, the secular holiday, has become and is trying to strip from the authentic religious feastday celebrating the birth of the God-man.

Now this... will truly be an amazing listen! Krista Tippett conversing with the UCC's own scholar and theologian Walter Brueggemann on her show 'On Being.' Click the link and just listen or podcast for later! But don't miss it...
This is why the UCC is non-doctrinal and why we wish everyone was reading the Bible regular. (pm) “What the church does with its creeds and its doctrinal tradition, it flattens out all the images and metaphors to make it fit into a nice little formulation and then it’s deathly. So we have to communicate to people, if you want a God that is healthier than that, you’re going to have to take time to sit with these images and relish them and let them become a part of your prayer life and your vocabulary and your conceptual frame. Which, again, is why the poetry is so important because the poetry just keeps opening and opening and opening whereas the doctrinal practice of the church is always to close and close and close until you’re left with nothing that has any transformative power.” — ~Walter Brueggeman, His entire conversation with Krista Tippett is riveting. "The Prophetic Imagination," a good episode to listen to this time of year.
So, I am admittedly sharing this without having listened to it. However, it is On Being with Krista Tippett and Walter Brueggemann talking about The Prophetic Imagination; it has to be good.

A lovely bit of writing that tickled my brain… "Words matter. Tolerance = allowing, indulging and enduring Tolerance = testing the limits of thriving in an unfavorable environment. Tolerance = out-dated - we have come as far as we could with tolerance as our only guiding virtue: - Compassion is our guiding virtue now. Compassion = kindness, cultivating, practicing curiosity without assumptions, empathy, forgiveness and presence, generosity, hospitality, just showing up, just being there, a willingness to see beauty not just what we see in another that needs fixing. Compassion can change us if we truly let it sink in to the standards by which we hold ourselves and others both in our private and in our civic spaces. Compassion is visible, when we see it we recognize it. It seeks physicality. Exudes tenderness. Compassion is a sign of deeper human possibilities. Compassion is released never by statistics and strategies. Tikkun-olam = (repair the world) a key moral longing ( each of us, frail and flawed as ...

Gwendolyn Zoharah Simmons was an original Black Power feminist and a leader of the Mississippi Freedom Summer of 1964. Now a professor at the University of Florida and a Sufi Muslim, her perspective has evolved over 50 years. Rev. Lucas Johnson is a young, 21st Century embodiment of non-violent resistance. He is a leader within the historic Fellowship of Reconciliation, working with young African-Americans, and with people from Congo to Palestine, to apply this mode of social change to hard, contemporary realities. On Being host Krista Tippett will lead them in a cross-generational conversation, mining their wisdom for our time. Doors open at 6:30pm A free reserved ticket is requ ...
I found this TED talk by Krista Tippett to be very inspirational. In fact, it was a profound impetus for this project.
I came across Brené Brown a few years ago on On Being with Krista Tippett and on a TED talk. This photo captures the essence of her incredibly positive work on shame and growing into our new identity as a "child of God" in this "already/not yet" world. A blessed Advent day to you!
Hey Sarah, Taylor, and Michelle, I have been obsessed with this on being podcast. It talks about the taboo of vulnerability and relates it to gendered experiences of shame. A must-listen-to if you like Krista Tippett.
I am a huge fan of Krista Tippett's "On Being" (on NPR Sunday nights). Tonight, as I listened to Brene Brown talk about the courage to be vulnerable (an awesome episode, by the way), I was reminded of one of my favorite episodes, an interview with yoga teacher Seane Corn. I'm not into yoga, but there is so much wisdom in this episode . . .

June 13 Tip: On Finding the Poetry in Conversation Blog from TRENT GILLISS: ON FINDING THE POETRY IN CONVERSATION (the June 13 Compassionate Living Tip from Interfaith Paths to Peace) night when I couldn't sleep, I decided to listen to the latest On Being podcast, which was a really arresting conversation between Krista Tippett and a poet I'd never heard of, Marie Howe. There were so many words, lines, thoughts that stood out to me as I listened, and I kept thinking, I should write these down. But then they were more than just thoughts; it all sounded like a poem to me. When I was about 19 or so, I found a book of poems in the library by the amazing Annie Dillard, who'd written a book that had recently blown me away (Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, of course). Annie handled words like a cross between an athlete who performs stunning feats without a second thought [apparently] and an astronaut who sits on a thin ledge between life and death and fixes some billion dollar spaceship part with a jerryrigged toothbrus ...

A Shift to Humility: Andrew Zolli on Resilience and Expanding the Edge of Change (On-Being Krista Tippett)
Angels, in the wake of yesterday's celebration of Ray's life, today I'm weeping through every episode of On Being. Krista Tippett wrecks me!
A few weeks ago, Rev. Linda and I discussed how someone could respond to her sermons, whether we agree or disagree or just had something to add. We talked about having some cards on the First Sunday Lunch tables with the prior four week’s themes of sermons and letting people reflect on their view of the subject. We also talked about having a column in the newsletter. So I chose this route this month. On 5/19/13, Rev. Linda spoke on “being afraid, very afraid”…..she spoke of someone who was debating whether to “come out” in a world that could and would treat that person differently. So differently, that they could lose their job, family, friends, etc. and it reminded me of the podcast I had just heard from “On Being” by Krista Tippett of NPR. The link is here: Krista was interviewing John Lewis, Civil Rights leader and Congressman from Georgia. She asked how the young African Americans in the 1960s prepared for the sit in’s, marches and civil disobedience stances they took. Mr. Lewis e .. ...
The civil rights movement John Lewis helped animate was -- as he tells it -- love in action. He opens up the art and the discipline that made nonviolence work then -- and that he offers up for our common life even today.
Andrew Zolli ("Resilience: Why Things Bounce Back") said something this morning to Krista Tippett ("On Being") that speaks to several places in my life: (my paraphrase) We are not in Kansas any more. We are also not in Oz. We are in the whirlwind. There will be those who urge that we go on, that it is foolish to hang onto a world that no longer exists, or maybe never did. There will also be those who urge that we go back, that we are in danger of losing what gave us meaning, what defined our lives.
Can resilience thinking be a successor to solutions-based strategies and even sustainability, both of which assume that balance can be achieved? Andrew Zolli is helping reframe our approach to everything from economic development to urban planning.

You should stop being so cruel to other people. As you sow, so shall you reap. Fred built an immense fortune by swindling others, but lost it all when someone swindled him. As a man sows, so shall he reap.

I've always been a fan of Derek Wollcut's plays: heart this poem which I just heard for the first time in an "ON BEING" podcast. Compassion begins at home. LOVE AFTER LOVE The time will come when, with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other's welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life.

Okay...some random thoughts and possible suggestions from others. I'm a nerd, and I do nerdy things as a result. If I list some podcasts I listen to, some online classes I do from i-tunes U (again, for fun), would I perhaps be able to get feedback from others who listen to said podcasts or who would also have blog ideas to read about. I'm a little "all over the place," so don't expect a whole lot of consistency from my list. I would especially appreciate the input of Casey Sugden, Chris Brademeyer, Christopher McGarvey, Matthew Durance, LA Green, Benjamin Shank, Eric Bodenstab Elise Wied, Travis Berg, Michael Miller, Matthew Moss, and Chantelle Siltman...especially from those of you who read good blogs, what are you reading and how do you like it?

"God is just plain too busy loving us to be disappointed in us." - Fr. Greg Boyle on On Being with Krista Tippett
Just listened to Greg Boyle on the radio (On Being with Krista Tippett). He's a Jesuit priest working with gangs in LA. "This is not work of helping, he says, but of finding kinship. The point of Christian service, as he lives it, is about 'our common calling to delight in one another.'" Isn't that amazing? Just ordered his latest book "Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion." Can't wait to read it.
