So, I was just leaving a message for my son Kyle, playing a classical étude I'm working on. He was gracious to volunteer to listen (later). The idea is that with classical pieces, especially memorized repertoire, ones psychology works differently when one knows (or sees) that someone else is listening. It's a fact. Basically you don't really know the piece until you've messed up in front of someone and then corrected your mistakes!

So I'm playing the piece and of course I make a mistake. I'm speaking into the phone going, "dang-it, lemme start over" and kept playing... etc.

Well here's the kicker, the message time had run out and NO ONE WAS LISTENING. But that didn't (truly) matter because I THOUGHT SOMEONE WAS. So my mind continued to play tricks on me and I made errors in my performance that I had not made when practicing alone.

So here's the point (though I'll admit I've taken the long and really strange way...)

I once believed that there is no such thing as being born Gay. I now believe that people who say "I was born Gay," were (remember what I stated above, "Perception is reality") absolutely born Gay.

Go ahead. Prove me wrong.

Good for the dialogue!

Romans 8

I don't think about this often enough. Being:
foreknown,
predestined (to be conformed to the image of His Son)
called,
justified,
glorified. Wow.

#OccupyMemphis takes part in GhandiKing Conference @actionnews5

Musician Kirk Whalum wrote part of the soundtrack to "The Little Town of Bethlehem," which was screened at the conference and inspired by King's message.

"It's significant, it's poignant for where we are today and even things we're dealing with now with Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Memphis," said Whalum.  "That to me is reason enough to be here."

Asinine and Arrogant

Rep. Stephen Fincher, please know that you do NOT speak for this American or this Christian with your drug testing bill. Ever occurred to you that many of these folks need our HELP to be clean?? How arrogant and insensitive.

Pastor urges return to urban ministry » The Commercial Appeal @memphisnews

Evangelical pastor and best-selling author Tim Keller urged a largely white, evangelical audience Tuesday to return to urban ministry, not to save the city but to serve it.

"The city has more images of God per square inch than suburban or rural areas," Keller, founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, told hundreds who attended a luncheon at the Holiday Inn at the Wilson Center of the University of Memphis.

"Why would you not love the city?"

Keller, who has helped to plant dozens of urban congregations across the country, said evangelicals who are thriving in suburban settings must plant new churches and ministries in Memphis and other urban areas. The effort would draw younger generations, more non-Christians and unchurched Christians, and serve people of influence as well as the poor, he said. Read rest of article at Commercial Appeal
