Love, the High Road of Justice 150 150 Nicole

#Love is the key. #mlk #opendoors #rethingreality #ccu PC: Greer Snyder As I consider the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., I am reminded that prophets throughout history stand outside of time because they stand in a reality that is timeless: love. A love that is concerned for the well-being of all peoples. A love…

The Hashtag Image

The Hashtag Image 150 150 Nicole

Recently, I came across an article about a brilliant campaign: #droptheplus (droptheplus.org). The article features a couple of lovely models that look like real people. Beautiful. And real. The campaign is one of many that are making a genuine attempt to change the way that the world perceives beauty—and, the function of the female form.…

Standing Still – Advent Peace

Standing Still – Advent Peace 150 150 Nicole

Peace occurs when time and space are suspended. I do not mean an escape from reality. Rather, peace comes when what looks and feels like reality—the unrelenting rush of time transporting me, helpless to obey—is revealed for what it is: an illusion.

I just read a beautiful description of the mission of Christ (though, not explicit) from a postmodern marketing guru, Seth Godin:Gardens, not buildingsGreat projects start out feeling like buildings. There are architects, materials, staff, rigid timelines, permits, engineers, a structure.It works or it doesn’t.Build something that doesn’t fall down. On time.But in fact, great projects,…
