Tomorrow I'm going to church in-person for the first time since early 2020.

I hope I remember how to IRL.

Yes, I just verbed IRL.

Now I just need to remember to regularly check new member requests. 😆

I've taken over as admin of interfaith.masto.host.

If you are interested in respectfully discussing matters of faith, religion, and spirituality and connecting with others, I'd like to invite you to join this instance.

What's my card of the day?

I bet it's the 4 of Swords.

Called it!

I think part of the reason why the thought of becoming a minister or chaplain has appealed to me is just the simple need for more people to acknowledge the intrinsic value of those most would prefer to forget.

I suspect I'll be turning this sermon into a short book. I just need to be careful that doesn't happen tomorrow when I deliver it.

About 18 hours from now I'll be preaching for the first time in over 2 years, and for the first time on Zoom.

Sermon is about 75% done. It'll get there before the bell--it always does--but it's slow-going.

At least I don't have to drive anywhere.

Had a dream last night where I went back to visit Union Theological Seminary. In the dream I had a moment where I thought "I miss this place. Maybe I should go back for a doctorate." And I remembered that Dr. Cone had passed on and thought "I guess there's no point in doing that. At least not here."

Ganesh Chaturthi is this week. Must get laddu from the Indian market.

Been reading a lot of occult and Neo-Pagan books lately. Phil Hine's "Condensed Chaos" is very good, but what I find most interesting are the Amazon reviews. I honestly think most of the more critical reviews were probably written by the sort of occultists he tries to warn the reader against (i.e. the self-important, pompous, delusional types).

Kind-of wish I had read it about six years earlier.

vague scheming 

It's been a hot minute since I've posted to this account.

I've got one of those ideas, that I just can't shake, which usually means it's something I need to act on. I don't want to go into to many details except that it relates to a novel way of bringing together my various disciplines into creating something awesome.

Anyways, watch this space.

Ah, the French reply guys! Celebrated everywhere for being blocked.

Maybe I should do a fast.

Is it still considered a fast if you have coffee?
