It is 2020!
At the beginning of each #newyear, we make #new plans, new #resolutions, new #goals , want new #directions, forge new #paths and much more. This is wonderful. It sounds like we all want #CLARITY in our hearts about what to do and how to get it done. @PD_PneumaFaith
As I was thinking about this over the last couple of weeks, the scripture for #PneumaFaith kept coming to my mind. "The unfolding of your word gives light; it gives understanding to the simple." (Psalms 119:130 NIV). @PD_PneumaFaith
The word #UNFOLDING is used in many translations of this verse (#entrance, #teaching, #revelation, #explanation #disclosure #opening #declaration) Whatever translation we read, it implies the #reading or #meditation of the #word brings #light, #illumination ...

This #NewYear2020 resolve to de-colonize.

There is nothing “secular” about #Welcome2020. This Calendar is Pope Gregory’s (though badly copied from India), the year and date chosen around the mythical “Jesus.”

It erases our own history & traditions.…
No, not the planet. The Christian world uses Christian calendar. The Islamic world uses Islamic Calendar. China’s biggest celebration is the Chinese New Year per its own Calendar. But India uses?

How is New Year related to “Jesus”? When Church invented Jesus’s birthday as December 25, they picked “New Year” to mark Jesus’s circumcision.

So, to be accurate #NewYear is a celebration of cut-foreskin day…

Last day of the year & decade. Can you give the Flint #SaveFlintChallenge one last campaign boost. Humbly asking anyone reading this to make one final donation for 2019. #FlintWaterCrisis #NewYearNewFlint #NewYearNewWater #NewYearsEve #NewYear…
In America, we don’t turn our backs on our neighbors when they need help. After watching everyone on social media forget about thousands of Americans struggling due to the water crisis, we decided to create our own campaign to help Flint. #SaveFlintChallenge #NewYearNewFlint

Let 2020 be the year of raising our consciousness and focusing on being more human.
New Year's Eve is a time for both reflection and looking ahead. If you couldn't stop thinking about it in 2019, make it a reality in 2020. I hope your dreams and wishes come true this New Year.
Enjoy your New Year's!! Be safe!! Remember... be free of the past and start new. Best gift you can give yourself. #NewYearsEve #NewYear

Thread CW: murder, suicide, ableism.
@nytimes published a story about a man who murdered his wife who had Alzheimer's and then killed himself. The author of the article characterized the piece as a "love story" in a tweet. 1/5
The content of the tweet angered me. I have a personal rule against reading articles like this because they upset me so much, but I decided to read the full article to see if the tweet was just poorly written due to character limits and a desire to go viral. 2/5
The tweet was an accurate representation of the author's opinions, and the article included no discussion of rates of fillicide or matricide of disabled people, advocacy to change these trends, or even a basic discussion of Alzheimer's statistics. 3/5

I don't think I've ever been this excited about a #NewYear. #2019's gonna be the year we revolutionize the way the American public both understands & consumes history!🔥🔥🔥

Big things……
Seriously: I think sometimes ppl trained as academics have a hard time imagining communicating their expertise w the public in any form other than the written word.

Time to change that.

People are increasingly only willing to read very short pieces, sometimes not even that.
So we can either keep lamenting that ppl don't read enough, aren't self-educating enough, etc., or we can a abandon our own snobberies abt form & repackage history in formats that ppl DO consume.

Wishing everyone a #HappyNewYear again! But as much as I do, I also know that EU citizens at home in the UK are worried about what lies ahead, esp. after recent revelations about #SettledStatus that confirmed that the government intend to use it to control who of us can stay. 1/
So if you want to stand with us and start the #NewYear with something positive that really helps EU citizens, become an #EUcitizensChampion on #NewYearsDay. Donations make a real difference, enabling @The3Million to continue their vital work.… 2/
I am in awe of what @The3Million have achieved. While #SettledStatus is not what we were promised, without @The3Million the rights of EU citizens at home in the UK would be in an even worse place—they have done and achieved a lot, so please support them so they can continue. 3/3

It is your last day in your old apartment. This house has been both good and bad, filled with all sorts of memories and you do have a couple of testimony from staying here. But, times have changed.
You just got a bigger, more beautiful and most importantly, a better apartment. Whether you want to or not, you just have to move. You have outgrown your former house.

A #Safaitic #NewYear blessing: wa-mallāḥa fa-hā-llāt sallemī wa-faṣeyyat meb- boʾs ʾas-sanat 'Aquarius has risen so, O Allāt, grant security and deliverance from misfortune this year'. Happy #2019 to everyone and may all your dreams come true! (commentary below)

FAMILY, MINDSETS & GUILT TRIPS | If you're succeeding in life and trying to create a better life for your parents, siblings or extended family, you should read this. #Thread #NewYearResolutions #NewYear
One of the hardest things you'll come up against is mindset. It is what will cause you the most sorrow. Let me explain using a Nigerian example.
You believe one should have electricity for 24 hours a day. You have the financial means, so you can now attain this using a combination of PHCN, Generator, Inverter and Solar Panels.
