Prayeroftheday from @sojourners
God, there is so much injustice and suffering crying out for our attention: victims of hunger, of racism, and of political persecution. May my life no longer be mine alone; may I use my freedom to pursue the freedom of others. Amen.
Adapted from Elie Wiesel

Inspiration from my son @KyleWhalum

My son Kyle sent me this. I choose to focus ON THIS as my commemorative action on this 9/11.
'"God is looking for sincere worshippers. Worship is simply the expression of our love, commitment, and devotion to God.' So, therein lies the answer to my own question: Yes, RUNNING A MARATHON CAN BE AN ACT OF WORSHIP if I've deemed it my intent and purpose!"

Running--worship.
Practicing--worship.
Studying--worship.
Painting--worship... Etc. Add your non-verbal worship here _____________ .

David says "...I will bring no sacrifice which costs me nothing." 2Samuel 24:24 (paraphrase)

Happy Birthday Uncle Peanuts!

Once I finally got over the trepidation of "family self-promotion" to embrace the well-documented genius of Hugh "Peanuts" Whalum, I began to spread the word!  I was blessed to produce his first-ever CD called "Introducing Hugh "Peanuts" Whalum," which introduced his music to a much broader (and well deserved) audience, including people like Dave Koz, Jonathan Butler, and Patti Austin... all of whom are now diehard fans.  My uncle Peanuts remains, now on his 84th birthday, one of the few true talents of his era left on the planet.  He deserves for this last 40 or 50 years to be his best!!  Happy Birthday Uncle Peanuts!

The Poor

22 Do not rob the poor because he is poor, Nor oppress the afflicted at the gate; 23 For the LORD will plead their cause, And plunder the soul of those who plunder them.

Los pobres

22 No explotes al pobre porque es pobre, ni oprimas en los tribunales a los necesitados; 23 porque el SEÑOR defenderá su causa, y despojará a quienes los despojen.
Prov.22:22
