Lentils & rice (plus @cafeyumm sauce) with steamed zucchini, delivered to me in bed with a kiss from @kaleidic. Being sick ain’t SO bad.
Maybe loving criminals & outcasts is easy. But what about gossips, attention seekers, or those who take offense at every little thing?
Also, Hafiz broke me with “This one is mine.”
Now, when @kaleidic kisses me after a beer, I giggle, because he smells like some of our peeps who live outside. They don’t usually kiss me.
May you breathe in grace & peace, breathe out love & light. Goodnight.

Folks say pursuing God w/all your heart, soul, mind is hard &, well, unpleasant. Either that`s not true or I`m doing smthng very wrong. Joy!
Busy day: Jail visit, funeral, then dinner in the park with friends. Love & grace. :)
Some folks turned their sadness into anger. We can’t prevent it, but we can go back & love up the mess.
Memorial was for Monica. She was loved; always a ray of sunshine in a sometimes not-so-sunny place. She will be missed.
RT @GeePawHill In this life you can close your heart & get f*kd, or you can open your heart and get f*kd & sometimes get cake. i like cake.
Listened to some new stories, found new ways to love some neighbors. Ripped apart & put together again. I love this job! Thank you, Spirit.
RT @rschatz56560 … I am free to question all of religion with the ‘God Loves Everyone’ filter from #outlawpreachers
Went downtown to drop off a workshirt; ended up staying for four hours. Why do I feel so at home there?
I think a hospitality house is in our future.
Encouraged peeps to call when in need. Turns out, that`s a lot. How much can I give? #fb
RT @hughlh Life would be easier if I could just focus on the poor, but the rich church people need healing, too. // Love you, bro.
Still praying for those at G20, those who “hold” authority & those who resist. May God’s peace come down on you like rain.@silentrhythms
Client’s Lulu.com project is stalled, and I can’t get customer service. Suppose they’re on twitter?
I imagine forgiveness as a bridge by which we go from judgment to nonjudgment.
What if the crazy stuff Jesus recommends is really possible? Could you love those around you as you love yourself? How do you love yourself?
If I get a mac, how easy will it be to find open source design software for it? I don’t think my Corel Draw will work. :( Inkscape? Gimp?
Member of our congregation tells me her stress is caused by “someone not keeping their mouth shut!” Where do I start?
are you almost done, or just starting?
I suppose telling someone in pain “Would you friggin change your ways, already?!” isn’t the skillful path, huh?
Don’t make me open up this can of forgiveness on your ass!
Eugene: Sat. Oct 3. We’re out of town, & need someone to drop off food so homies don’t go hungry. Now’s ur chance to help! www.tr.im/loves
I’m not as good at loving people when I’m sleep deprived. Ask me how long it took to learn that. :) Ima go take care of myself. ‘Night!
“Religion is a defense against the experience of God.” — Jung (via @conal)
Watching my first ”Urban Entry” video from Mile High Ministries. They’re for introducing people to urban ministry like we do.
God said: Not now; you are tempted to consider yourself “better than” fat people. Pwnd.
In a moment of weakness, I cried and begged God to make me not-fat. (cont.)
Urban Entry videos are a great introduction for folks who want to reach out in love. http://bit.ly/1GzWvj
Insomnia. If I’m out by 3:30, wonder how long I can sleep? Goodnight. :)
Just ate at Taco De Mar in Eugene. Pretty good fast Mexican. Black beans avail & fresh chips, fresh salsa.
Ack. I am way out of practice on a Mac.
PeopleofWalmart.com is reminding me how much I love people, and variety. They’re beautiful. :)

Spending the *whole day* cleaning the kitchen. Whoopee! :) (Well, and discussing Perceptual Control Theory. And Critical Rationalism.)
Giant squeally hug for @MoJoJules & her good energy & prayers. :)
I am so excited! We finally got a “what we believe” page up. It will surprise you, I think. :)
I’d really really *really* love feedback. “What we believe” http://bit.ly/RLPbelieve #outlawpreachers
Appreciate all y`all tweeps so much! Love 7 grace 7 peace to you. Goodnight.
“Today nobody doubts that Jesus` conception of the kingdom.. is.. eschatological”—Bultmann // Say what? Hmm.
Oh, now Bultmann is getting juicy. :)
Gonna start some Bultmann tonight. Anybody read him? I hear he’s a heretic, like me. :) #outlawpreachers
The rain is here. It`s autumn in the Willamette Valley.
(Uh, those 7s are s`pozed to be &s.) Zzzzzzz.
The first really rainy morning, and I have a sudden urge for a bike ride. Wonder if I can dig up my rain gear? :D
