Day Bidet #83

The Moon and the Pleiades have set:

  1. “[H]is was the most beautiful worship I’ve ever heard.”
  2. Build—patiently and quietly. (Related. Related—makes ya think! As does this—and this. Related.)
  3. “Love,” to riff off Dante, “is the secret force that moves all things.”
  4. “The brain craves predictability more than happiness.” (Related. Related.)
  5. “[F]or the early Christians the imminence of Jesus’s return was not a matter of dogma but of hope.”
  6. “[T]here simply aren’t as many gainfully employed men to go around as there used to be.” Progress!
  7. Matthew 10.38-39: “And he that taketh not his crosse, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake, shall find it.”

“I trust that the child I will meet in heaven one day will unmistakably bear some mark by which I will know what I did to him.” (Related.)

Content warning.

“Jesus is telling his disciples that their meekness, poverty, and even their state of persecution means they are already in a state of shalom, the kind of happiness that comes from being exactly where God intends you to be.”
