So often we try to condense our world into bullet points. It’s easier that way until it’s not. Our lives are a mess of complex pieces and the words we use to sort through them are each important to our ability to see ourselves and see each other. This is a space where all the words matter.

    18: Unity (reflection & poem)

    18: Unity (reflection & poem)

    I recently published a piece about Unity. You can find it here. The writing process got me thinking a lot about...unity...and so I thought I'd share some recent and not at all recent thoughts on the matter. The poem was written in 1999. I was 20.

    Enjoy.

    Advent (day 8) Clarity.

    Advent (day 8) Clarity.

    Todays words are not mine at all. Most are pieces from the Bible and the last one is a poem that I got permission to read. It's by Rev.  J Todd Jenkins. You can follow him on Twitter @dabar96.

    Until next time...

    Advent (day 7) Perfect (pt 1).

    Advent (day 7) Perfect (pt 1).

    Anyone in the airwaves love to be perfect??

    I'm certainly a perfectionist in recovery and I take joy in moments when messy is just fine and imperfect can remain. Listen into what I'm thinking about as I begin making connections between what is perfect and this season of Advent.

    Just one piece today. You can read it here: https://wordhabit.com/2020/12/08/advent-day-7-perfect/
