Old Words, New Interpretation

Life is fluid. With that being said I believe that the interpretation of scripture and the constitution. Both documents cannot impose authority based upon ancient norms and rules. Words should be living and breathing things and given the opportunity to propose new ways of looking at things.

We cannot allow old words to prevent life and happiness from being accessible to all. Freedom and liberty must make a bigger table for many to sit down and partake.

The world would be a much safer place if that were the case. May everyone enjoy life, liberty, and happiness.

Sunday Reflection: Storytelling #sundaythoughts

One could say life is a story. Everything we do in life is recalled from memory to be told later on. Whether it comes from a book, music, movie, or in a campfire there is a tale worth telling.

Some of the great story tellers such as Shakespeare, Austen, Lewis, Twain, Haley, Swift, Paisley, Cash, Spielberg, Howard and Young and many more have captured our imagination and challenged us to think differently. We have learned much from their art and vision.

Family stories can be the most colorful and something that ties the past with the present and the future.

In scripture, the feeding of the five thousand is one where there are lots of characters to choose from. Jesus was doing some cool things to bring community together and performing a miracle in the process. Talking about a big fish story.

Blogging and social media are telling our stories in real time. We get to share our experiences in this life with one another as it happens. As a long-time blogger its quite fun to see how other people live and where they are coming from. Its like travelling without having to leave your home.

Movies are a way to share a story in a communal way where people can see different things from the same source. Videos from YouTube are an important part of giving voice to people and to offer instructions on how to navigate life.

Stories are important. We all have one. Let’s be sure to insure the transmission of our lives and culture into tomorrow. There is much to be learned from it all. Tell us the story good people.

Quote Of The Day

It’s better to have a partner than go it alone.
Share the work, share the wealth.
And if one falls down, the other helps,
But if there’s no one to help, tough!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (From The Holy Bible)
