Splendid





We're having record setting warm weather here. It's extremely pleasing. Usually February sucks.

Radiate

I led a prayer station at Edge tonight (7th & 8th grade Catholic religious ed class).  I didn't create it, just presented it to rotating small groups. Using candles of various colors and brightness, we talked about the "light of Christ" inside us, and how when we go to church/pray/talk to God, etc this light is bright, but doesn't really spread far.  Here we lit a small dark colored candle on a dark surface.  But when we reflect and radiate that light outwards by being real disciples and acting (serving/helping others, donating money/time/groceries, etc), our "light" spreads far.  Here we lit a brighter candle in a crystal vase which reflected light everywhere.  I felt like most of them got the message.  It was a cool night at Edge tonight.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo


I wonder how many other 48 year old men use their "princess voice" nearly every day?  Do you know who Sophia and Amber are? Can you name all of the Disney princesses? I've been doing this shit for 24 years now. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!
