Starman Come Down Off Your Cloud

rainbowhair

Starman, come down off your cloud
and show this world it’s been found.
Turn those eyes from the sky
and rewind all those lies.
Take our hand.
Lead us home.
You are never alone.
Starman, come down off your cloud
and tell the world you are proud.

Clearly some David Bowie and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure influence in this one but as I was about to post this today I was listening to a podcast called “Steve Harper: Holy Love: A Biblical Theology for Human Sexuality.” The words above were instantly born of that conversation and seemed to fit just right. Lots of hate and fear out there right now. Lots of people afraid. Lots of anger. Also a lot of new understanding. We don’t live in a black and white world. Every day is another chance to change your mind about how to love.

The podcast is right here if you have an interest: http://tamedcynic.org/category/podcasts/

Morning of Creation

“Morning of Creation” – Art by Chris Weidner

“One learns that the world, though made, is yet being made; that this is still the morning of creation; that mountains long conceived are now being born, channels traced for coming rivers, basins hollowed for lakes…”

– John Muir
