Daily Practice for 2017.10.04 – What will you claim today?

Meditation I read an article this morning that Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump came close to being arrested in New York City for real estate fraud.

Word  Continuing to share items from The BeZine, our sister publication. Today's sharing is from Lisa Ashley. Lisa is one of my chaplains in juvenile detention. In this non-fiction piece, she shares of the gentle relationships we develop among the most vulnerable staff. I share an excerpt from her and encourage you to read the entire piece at The BeZine. I Can Trust You, an excerpt from Lisa Ashley Two of Manuel’s co-workers used to watch the TV news during their break. Whenever Trump came on they would say, “That’s my guy!” Manuel told me they talked about the wall Trump promised to build. They said it was a good thing. “Right in front of me. They said that. That really hurt my feelings,” Manuel tells me. His head dips down towards his plate. When Manuel was first hired some twel
