13h phrankied
Normal Frank DiIorio
phrankied April and I always thought that Christmas tree angel was a bit ... off. We finally realized the reason was that her head was too small. Secular Santa came to the rescue (or at least part of him did).

anomaly_in_the_system My relationship with God will always be a special, interesting one. You see, I'm not always convinced that God exists. But neither am I convinced that God does not. (Notice how I do not use "he" with God, for if there is a God, that being transcends genders, and I refuse to layer it in patriarchy). I've had people nearly screaming at me before for living in shades of gray when they clearly thought I should be seeing in black or white. But my colors come from gray. That's what makes sense to me. That's what speaks to my heart. Gray is nuances and gathering perspectives and soul-searching until it all makes just a little more sense. I know the athiests scoff at me for having any kind of belief outside of Western science, and the Christians pray for me and my lost soul and inability to utilize the Bible more. I suppose many of my beliefs defy clear categorization. I'm on both your teams though. I'm on all teams really, or at least most of them. Teams truth, understanding, genuinity, and love, all the way. Those sound like Team God to me. ♡

phrankied December 16th is the frst day of Hanukkah, aka The Festival of Lights. April and I are, nominally, Christian but that doesn't mean that we don't recognize and celebrate the miraculous (and eat latkes).

  •   avsansom I wouldn't say I'm even nominally Christian, honey. "Raised Christian." "Very interested in Judaism but probably won't convert." But thanks for referencing me. 4d

richard_thegreat Remember to wear your #Black on the morrow! On an earlier post, a white brother had remarked, "only black lives matter, eh? Now who's racist." What a sad miscarriage of common sense. There is nothing exclusionary about reminding the police force and the rest of the nation- parts of which seem to have forgotten- that this particular people has an inalienable, constitutionally proclaimed, and God-given #RIGHTTOLIFE! Let this nation be transformed into a culture of #LIFE! Join us, all who #love #Freedom, and #wearblack. #BlackLivesMatter #blackisthenewblack #BlackLivesMatterSunday #ecumenical #social #justice #COGIC #leadership #oneAmerica #dividedwefall #togetherwestand #ChurchofGodinChrist #PresidingBishop #IamaMan #mylifematterstoo 6d

a.florides It was a pleasure to be invited to read at the School of Theology's annual Christmas Carol service, which took place this evening. I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the joyful service, led by the Church of Scotland moderator , the Right Rev. John Chalmers and all the lecturers of the school, among other clergy and people. That's my ecumenical act of the month complete! #theology #gospelreading #church #ecumenical #service #christmas #edinburgh 1w

richard_thegreat I make a personal appeal to all of my followers and friends to stop and place your feet in the shoes of the #BlackMan in #America. Consider his plight, his #struggle, his fears and #hopes, his shortcomings and triumphs. Why must we make a fuss about #BlackHistory? Why do Black men in particular seem so angry? Why do we bemoan every new police shooting? Why must we remember the American Purgatory of slavery?! If we cannot see the shadowy spector of our history, friends, we are blind the the reality of the present! There is a prevailing evil within the climate of this country. The sands of time are cast about by this prevailing wind, and we can see haunting reminiscings of a drout-stricken past. This nation continues to devalue human life. This is illustrated by abortion, drug usage, gang violence, and police brutality rates. Join with us and WEAR #BLACK on the 2nd Sunday of December, the 3rd Sunday of Advent, being the 14th Day of December, AD MMXIV. This is an outward symbol of Christian, #ecumenical unity during this time of great angst and perceived persecution. Let this be a #movement and not just a moment. God bless America, and may Christ have mercy upon her. #BlackLivesMatter #blackisthenewblack 2w
  •   leestuartsherriff I find it very sad that this still goes on, I just don't understand it all. maybe because I live in possibly the most multicultural city in England, Leicester. I tend to look at a person as an individual. If we share the same interests what the he'll has colour got to do with anything. Most of my sporting heros past & present are black, Soccer - Ronaldinho, Pele, athletics - Linford Christie, Carl Lewis, Usain Bolt, boxing - Lennox Lewis,. I am a very passionate football(soccer as you say in the US ), fan and when I'm at the game I watch teams full of white, and black players, I only see a 'football player' not what colour they are. Regarding race relations, we have come so far, we simply have to work through this current madness for the good of all of us. We have to 'learn' from history. Peace be with you Richard, my friend. @richard_thegreat 2w

sherryhazlett Metropolitan Catholic Cathedral: craziest looking building but mesmerising on the inside with a dome of coloured stained glass in the roof. Both this church and the Anglican cathedral are on Hope street- pretty cool and you can see one from the other. #ecumenical #itsanecumenicalmatter #liverpool 2w
