1. Listening to The Frames’ album Set List as I write this. Highly recommended.
2. Ever since I made the decision to stay in Houston a while, a bunch of things have happened that have made me more grateful than ever that I’m here–foremost of which is the fact that my church is amazing, and I love them, and I’m looking forward to doing life with them. I don’t know what’s going on, but the past few times I’ve been at church things, it feels like the sparks of something are in the air, and I want to be around when it catches fire.
3. If you’re ever in the Houston area, come visit my church with me. Seriously. I will come pick you up if I need to.
4. For some reason this weekend I’ve been thinking about the idea of the artist as a prophetic voice, that people who are creatives have the opportunity to speak truth to and about the world through their work (and maybe in other ways, too).
