Nor does slavery* of any kind need be permanent.

     “Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ,

we can proclaim our emancipation from the slavery of trials and sin,

and thus (re)gain the freedom that is rightfully ours.”

Read more here about how I became emancipated from a kind of slavery

through an expression found in a John Mayer song.

¡Enseñando (teaching)!

1.  What things have you enslaved (figuratively or literally)?

2.  What ideas, resources, people, awesome blog(s) can be a Christ-figure and help emancipate you (figuratively or literally)?

*Slavery of any and all connotations (but particularly institutionalized racial slavery) is something that makes my heart heavy with pain.  Please know that I never intend to be flippant or insensitive concerning these issues (read more here about how racism is absolutely 100% NOT compatible with true Christianity).

Also, I in no way mean to compare myself to Abraham Lincoln or to the Savior.  And still I am expecting a thunderbolt of blasphemy…
