Okay so my roommate and her friend invited me to see Guardians of the Galaxy with them, so I did and it was nice to go do a thing.
It’s time for progressive Christians to claim discipleship. It’s time to get radical, not about our politics or our policies, but about our faith. It’s time to stop throwing the baby Jesus out with the bath water, and start putting the horse before the cart. It’s time to remember what, and who, we worship. It’s time to develop the language of faith. And it’s time to see our social justice work as a natural product of our discipleship, not something that competes with it for the church’s time.
And only then, when we have gone back to the source and found what ultimately binds us together with God and with one another, can we go out and find the next, next big thing. And whenever that happens, we will be better for it. And we just may find that when it comes to changing the world for the better, the Gospel of Why We Are Different Than Other Christians can’t hold a candle to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

If white American entitlement meant anything, it meant that no matter how patronizing, unashamed, deliberate, unintentional, poor, rich, rural, urban, ignorant, and destructive white Americans were, black Americans were still encouraged to work for them, write to them, listen to them, talk to them, run from them, emulate them, teach them, dodge them, and ultimately thank them for not being as fucked up as they could be.
I love listening to music with other people, especially when I'm introducing new music to them, but a pet peeve of mine is when people talk over music, which I recognize is a really ridiculous pet peeve to have since this is a social activity I'm describing, but it frustrates me nonetheless. It doesn't bother me as much now, but I was wondering if you or anyone else you know feel the same way?
be honest are you a man
