On Figuring Out What the Holiest Thing Is and Not Letting it Get Stolen

An Endless Falling

<Want to listen along? Click here. Listening is better than reading when it comes to sermons. It’s like the difference between hearing a piece music and reading a piece music>

John 10:1-10

images This, literally, was the CD that was stolen.

[Jesus said:] 1“Very truly, I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold by the gate but climbs in by another way is a thief and a bandit. 2The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep hear his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4When he has brought out all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5They will not follow a stranger, but they will run from him because they do…

On the Frontline of Disaster: The Volunteer Ambulance Drivers of Karachi, Pakistan

Longreads

At The Guardian, Samira Shackle profiles Muhammad Safdar, an ambulance driver in Karachi, Pakistan, where religious violence, workplace disasters, and multiple explosions are just another day on the job. The Edhi Foundation’s ambulance service, which refuses state money and donations from businesses it deems unethical, is funded largely by donations from “the common man.” Standard work shifts run between 18 and 36 hours, and drivers earn about $1.30 US per day.

The impact of the explosion sent Muhammad Safdar flying backwards. He looked up from where he had landed and saw that the windows of his parked ambulance had shattered. As he tried to pick himself back up, fellow volunteer drivers working for the Edhi ambulance service gathered around him; it looked as if Safdar was bleeding. But he had not suffered any external injuries. “Human flesh got stuck to me,” he recalls now, as we sit in the ambulance control…

My top soup recipes

Cooking Without Limits

I love soup. Clear or thick, vegetable or with meat, hot or cold, sweet or sour, soup could be one of the best dish at the table. We serve the soup after appetizers. I made a list with my favorite soups.

  1. Lobster bisque – Bisque is a French soup very smooth, creamy and highly seasoned, classically based on a strained broth of crustaceans.

  1. Pumpkin soup with turmeric – One of the best fall soups in the world you really have to try.

  1. Sweet hot and spicy soup – You can make a great sweet soup with sweet potato. Add chili and you have a treat.

You Are Not a Disgrace to Women. BUT.

Sarah Howell-Miller


This Facebook post has been making the rounds the last few days. I’m not sure who the original author is, as people have been copying and pasting it into their status (which led me to believe that someone I know had written it until I caught on). I wanted to respond to it at the time, but I knew I needed some time.

Then I read a blog post called “You Are Not Equal. I’m Sorry.” It’s intense and in a tone I have no desire to take, but it makes some great points. To summarize:

  • Many, MANY women fought and marched and sacrificed to afford women the rights they have today. We should thank them.
  • The fact is that in America, women are not equal. You might feel equal, but you are not. The stats are in the post.

But I wanted to take a different approach to responding. The…

Camino de Santiago~ May 10, 2017 morning

For those trying to authentically follow Jesus.


As we, some 240 pilgrims, leave the hostel from last night we will start to travel at much different speeds. I am not in a rush as I will not be able to do all 800 kilometers to Santiago. In addition it just started to rain, so I am taking my time. Today in order to allow my body to recover I think I will only do about 12 kilometers. The cafe in which I am having breakfast has good wi fi, my new friend from Croatia just left after our joint breakfast, so I am using the time to share a few pictures from yesterday. Later I will make a little film of some of them. For now, enjoy these beautiful views of the Pyrenees Mountains. Did I mention 27 kilometers and 1,400 meters high? 🙂

(Yes, those are horses running free, but with big bells, on the mountain…
