"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)

"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)

It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).

Our Church Buildings Can Feed EVERY Hungry Person On Earth.

"The rational dissonance gets even more intense at this time of year as millions of people will gather in billions of dollars worth of religious buildings to celebrate the birth of a homeless man while mostly ignoring the homeless around them. ....

Forget the money spent on pet food that would feed the world’s hungry.

Forget the money spent on arms and war that would clothe, educate and feed every poor person on the planet ten times over.

Forget what the 1% do with their wealth.

The money spent on religious buildings by those who claim to follow Jesus would also feed, clothe and educate every child born into poverty.

This is not about a scarcity of resources.
This is about misallocation of abundant resources.
This is about actually following Jesus who said, “Whatever you do unto the least you have done unto me."

(Steven Hill)
