[Saturday] ALL the hymnals

I woke up at like 6am this morning and got to go back to sleep :D I got up around 9 and had a leisurely morning.

Saturday bff phonecall had an intermission on account of when my available slots for a "I would like a haircut tomorrow" were, but we still possibly broke our record of longest phonecall (2:21:01 + 6:23:33 = 8:44:34).

My hairdresser asked me if I'd biked (as I had the last time). I said no, that I'd been on the phone with my best friend and I knew I could keep talking to her if I walked but not if I biked.
Hairdresser said, "You'll have to call someone else you like on the way home."

I continued to acquire new projects -- like liturgical dance Sunday and adding hymnals to hymnary.org


Someone on my facebook feed posted: "I'm so proud of our massachusetts ucc churches. We just voted to make sure Open and Affirming churches welcome transgender people and people of all gender identities and gender expressions!"

I look forward to our utilizing non-binary gender language in e.g. liturgy, our not assuming people's pronouns, etc. (No, I don't actually have any optimism on this front, but it does give me more grounds from which to push for that sort of stuff.)


Poll inspired by conversation with la bff (which was in turn inspired by a book she's reading):

Do you believe in the resurrection of the body (of people in general, not Jesus in specific)?

I'm mostly interested in responses from people who identify as Christian, but I'm not gonna stop anyone from filling out the poll.

Poll #1847424 and the life everlasting

Do you believe in "the resurrection of the body"?

I don't believe in resurrection, period.


"Joy Sadhana is a daily practice in the observation of joy."

Thus says God to these bones: "I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. I will lay sinews on you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am God." (Ezekiel 37:5-6, NRSV, alt.)
