Tuesdays Thoughts: It’s a Pharoah Economy

bible, Scripture
I'm about one-week into my post-surgery recovery. Today, I feel a little shaky so I'd love all your thoughts and prayers and energy! I'm sharing my musings on the beginnings of the birth story of Moses and my art and haiku. Peace! Daily #haiku and #Bible journaling come on, let's be smart lock all children in cages they are not like us 12-11-2018 #Advent Day 10 #Exodus 1 Yikes. Before getting into this horrifying passage, I want to remember the births we have witnessed so far. The births are: the cosmos (Gen 1), families (Gen 2), Cain & Abel (Gen 4), Ishmael (Gen 16), and Isaac (Gen 21). Do you see a theme? Well, when I read Exodus 1, I was gobsmacked.

Tuesday’s Thoughts: What Does Jonah Have to Teach Us About Imperialism?

bible, Scripture
Jonah, in the Bible, in Hebrew scripture (commonly called the Old Testament for Christians), is the famous individual characterized as being swallowed by a whale.  In my daily practice of scripture and art, I decided to tackle Jonah's tale. I had never really liked Jonah. He seems pretty selfish. Rather than desiring a rescue and grace for an entire people  he would rather the divine machine of war reign down destruction.

Or rather, God tries to teach Jonah a lesson. We don't really know if it works or not. It's a cliff-hanger that goes unresolved. Anyway, I decided to write a spoken wor...
