Tuesday’s Temptation: Turning Away

prayer
I have been feeling kind of -meh- for the last few days.  Most of us know that feeling.  Not good enough to do our best work but not bad enough to actually be able to label ourselves as sick.  My nose is beginning to be stuffy but I can still breathe through it.  My ears are also weirdly stuffy but not too bad.  My energy levels are decreasing.  For real.  I slept for 12 hours two days in a row.

But that is not who we are. This weekend, at BeguineAgain and at TheBeZine.com, we hosted a live event and encouraged :) events around the world that included: Picnics for all Presentations Multi-Faith Gatherings Blogs  Dreaming big of creating an NGO to fight hate Inter-denominational gatherings Multi-ethnic gatherings Prayers in faith communities Art Poetry Our reach was much broader than the 24 people that showed up for the white supremacy march in Washington, D.C.  Maybe, just maybe, we can rejo
