    Confirms the alarm bell for a compassionate community that shares in the passion, removing the demarcation of ‘we’ and ‘they’. Contrary to contemplating the joy of Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, and focusing on the ‘the joy set before Him’ on Good Friday.Challenging our ignorance of the voiceless.

    As ever, your use of metaphor is startling – but compelling! Some good transformative thoughts there. Still thinking it through. . . .

    Helpful insight on passion in thisife and the life to come. This gives double meaning to the ter. Often used in reference to Christ’s return as CONSUMATION,

    Dear Marble:

    This might be one you have to feel your way through…

    Love it!!! I fear the west will be so inundated by words like “amazing, mind blowing, and incredible” that when something of this magnitude actually occurs, it will be lost in a virtual abyss of overused adjectives. You know we have gone off of the deep end when The Cracker Barrel, Coors and Popeys use the word “handcrafted” to describe their food and drink. I wince every time a person comes to the Brewey and asks me if I make any craft beers. Seems like our culture is so controlled by rhetoric, it’s difficult to separate what we actually feel with what we actually say. It’s like you always say, Mike – Adam had to “feel” his way around to really get to know Eve. On the other hand, hedonism trumps rhetoric. Our culture offers solutions to “problems” (like pregnancy, for example) allowing us to “do it” because it “feels good” and not have to consider the unintended consequences. If this is true, it’s going to take decades to turn this thinking around. I don’t believe you or I will be alive to see it.

    I love your enthusiasm. By the way, that’s a better word to use. Enthusiasm = “en” (in) + “theos” (God). When we see God in our work, for example, we are enthusiastic about it. We tend to be more purposeful. We tend to be more faithful. However, when passion becomes an unalloyed positive, “enthusiasm” comes off as weak tea. How sad.
