1/ Not responded to the #CofE's latest #statement before now because I felt it as a body blow - a blow to those members of the #body of #Christ who God gave me as siblings & with whom I am united, whose pain echoes in me though it is not directly my own - & I needed to breathe...
2/ The #statement is thin paper stretched over a seething mass of different, deeply held #identities, opinions, lives & #loves that stand in #opposition to one another, yet somehow mysteriously #united in #Christ. There are #cracks we cannot paper over, divides staggeringly deep.
3/ I am really hoping this #lawyerly #statement from the church was just a 'holding statement' till the proper review that is coming, made because the law on civil #marriage changing pushed them into saying something because clergy would need guidance straight away..I am hoping..

"She will need emergency surgery. Her popliteal artery is severed & needs a vein graft.",said the attending #ER surgeon.

I understood.

"I would like to see my #daughter.", I said holding together the brokenness I felt.I then remembered the need to call the #prison #Chaplain
"Mom, don't look.", my daughter said as the #ER team worked to put her together as much as possible.

I went to her to whisper in her ear, "We should pray now. They will be taking you into surgery to stop the bleeding. #Pray and repeat after me."
I held my #daughter & prayed as I heard my oldest daughter yelling from the other #ER room."I'm sorry!.", she yelled.She was driving that night.

The #nurse stopped me midway to my older daughter's room as the ER team continued to work on my other daughter.She could see...

THREAD. Let’s get into Beyoncé’s #Spirit lewk references.

This is a custom Mark Fast bodycon dress. It’s texture + volume is very reminiscent of the grass skirts of the Tharaka Tribe of Kenya
Custom Maison Alexandrine dress is embroidered in pearls + crystals. The cowrie harness is custom made by Laurel Dewitt + Alex Navarro

The cowrie shell was once used as currency in many African nations. It is a symbol of fertility as the round shape resembles a pregnant belly
Beyoncé in custom Tongoro Studio bustier, suit + durag. It was made custom for her in Dakar, Senegal where Tongoro is based.

Senegal is known for their thriving textile industry. Fabrics with unique prints + patterns are a speciality. This suit really showcases that heritage

It's all @kelvy_bird 's fault, haha ! Her book made me try to map a four-fold unified evolutionary scene: the #evolution of Life, means, ends & the #sustainability discipline/#metrics. Yes, I know it needs to be improved. #generativescribing in Plato's cave
@kelvy_bird LEFT: Let me explain what came to my mind, while trying to draw this . The left side obviously is about #Spirit, #God or the #Creator and it was @TimFreke who made me aware that we are now entering a next evolutionary stage: the development & story of #soul.
@kelvy_bird @TimFreke UPPER: For me it's a #Maturity Model of #Stewardship for our vital #capital resources. With our egoistic human nature, we depleted (as usual) our capital resources. #Sustainability marked the barrier in context & #Regeneration is all about (re)paying our debt

#SPIRIT

I know you know what I'm talking about when I say spirit.

Remember "Spirit day" at school?

Remember "get in the spirit of..."

Christmass, Halloween, Easter, St. Patrick's day. Independence day.

Spirit of 1776...

Cont...
Yeah. You know. Deep down inside you KNOW what "spirit" is.

There are MANY spirits in this world. MANY. Some good. Some bad.

How do you know if a spirit is good for bad?

A spirit might appear right, just and good! But might turn out to be, well, not good at all.

Cont...
The spirit world is different than the physical world.

Here, we think, idk maybe ok I'll hang for a while and see.

In the spirit world, we don't have to do that. In fact, its dangerous to that.

#OSHO

Don’t #accumulate anything whatever: #power, #money, #prestige, #virtue, #knowledge, even the so-called #spiritual experiences. Don’t accumulate.

It doesn’t mean become a #beggar or #renounce the world. Be in the #world, but don’t be of the world.
If you don’t accumulate you are ready to #die any moment because you have nothing to #lose. The #mediation is living #death.

Don’t accumulate inside, be poor in #spirit. Never #possess anything and then you are ready to #die.
The more you #possess, the more you are afraid to lose. If you don’t possess anything, if your #purity, if your #spirit is uncontaminated by anything, if you are simply there #alone, you can disappear any moment; whenever #death knocks on the door it will find you ready.

#Spooks. The CIA is famous for them. But this #Halloween, we’re sharing a different kind of #spooky story. Like everyone else, Agency officers love a good #ghost story. Here are some of our favorites we collected from them. #CIASpookyStories #Boo

But was someone there? bit.ly/SpookyCIA1

“Occasionally, the elevator would stop and the doors would open at a floor with no one there, and no one on the elevator had requested that floor…”

#Ghosts practicing free throws? bit.ly/SpookyCIA2

“When I was making my security/safety rounds, I heard what sounded like someone bouncing a basketball…As I entered the room, there were no lights on and the dribbling of the basketball stopped.”
