it's actually a pretty good friday...

Read this while praying the morning office with my bride and was encouraged:
Here in this great gathering for worship
I have discovered this praise-life.
And I'll do what I promised right here
in front of the God-worshipers.
Down-and-outers sit at GOD's table
and eat their fill.
Everyone on the hunt for God
is here, praising him.
"Live it up, from head to toe.
Don't ever quit!"

From the four corners of the earth
people are coming to their senses,
are running back to GOD.
Long-lost families
are falling on their faces before him.
GOD has taken charge;
from now on he has the last word.

All the power-mongers are before him
-worshiping!
All the poor and powerless, too
-worshiping!
Along with those who never got it together
-worshiping!

Our children and their children
will get in on this
As the word is passed along
from parent to child.
Babies not yet conceived
will hear the good news-
that God does what he says.

- from Psalm 22(the Message)
Amen. Your kingdom come, Lord. Your kingdom come.

It's Friday, but Sunday's comin'. And we will celebrate resurrection with our community along with the Matthew's House clan and others. I can't wait. I'm looking forward to it. I do every year. And we may even have some special visitors next week. I'm excited about that. Plus, we met with a health food expert last night, quickly becomming a friend. We're going to do a series of workshops in our house starting next month on living healthier, more holistic lives starting with a film forum featuring the movie The Future of Food. Good film! You should check it out if you haven't. Thanks to Stetler for the encouragement in this direction. Awesome. More later.

UPDATE: check it
