Be Yourself

Often sleep damaged
When we try to cram our souls
Into other forms

Life is hard enough without trying to force ourselves into something we’re not. Finding a place of deep love and compassion for ourselves is a key step to everything peace and tranquility. 


Violence Bets Violence

A message from the bishop of my Synod in response to the recent horror in Las Vegas :

Violence begets violence.
Peace begets peace!
We must be about peace.
+ Bishop Kirby Unti


I found this a perfectly poetical statement, and a powerful part of his email introducing this letter.
