I don’t mind playing the game of “Devil’s Advocate” (and sometimes even greatly enjoy it!)

as long as it’s done in an Angelic way.

And Renae, you are my angel by the way.  So are you, Natasha girl…

“He that hath the Spirit of contention is not of me, but is of the devil.”

Slavery need not only be literal.

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.”

~Katherine Wilkinson

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…

I want to shout it from the rooftop, climb on a mountaintop baby, scream and shout!

I LOVE THIS BLOG SO MUCH!  I want to shout it from the rooftops.  And yes, it does come up in conversations.  But I also don’t want to shove it down anyone’s throat, make it feel like I’m trying to sell something, or hog the conversation.

But the thing is, when it DOES come up, it’s helping me network, help my friends and neighbors with job opportunities, gets me in touch with other musicians and writers, improving my relationships, share what is important to me, learn more about photography/graphics, and overall is making me very VERY happy.

Thunderbolt of blasphemy?  You bet.
