the following is one of the readings from the thirst/hunger godspace we did last week. thanks to gordy for it.

Without hunger and thirst
you will not stand out among the well-fed.
Without hunger and thirst
you don’t have to look for fresh water.
Without hunger and thirst
you will be satisfied with yourself.
Without hunger and thirst
you will not understand the hunger and thirst of others.
Without hunger and thirst
you don’t need to cry.
Without hunger and thirst
you will not sleep well.
Without hunger and thirst
you won’t eat and grow anymore.
Without hunger and thirst
you don’t belong to the community of the hungry and thirsty.

Without hunger and thirst
you will not see God.
His mercy goes out to the yearning and searching.

In hunger and thirst God is our teacher,
who creates in us the openness
to look for and to learn new things.

- Ulrich Schaffer

we use various readings from all sorts of sources at godspace. here is one we used from douglas coupland's latest book last thursday when we explored the theme of 'the desert':

"It was over a hundred degrees outside, my first exposure to genuine heat, Jason’s too. My lungs had never felt so pure. In the taxi to Caesar’s Palace I looked out at the desert – real desert – and tried to imagine every parable I’d ever heard taking place in that lifeless nothingness. I couldn’t have stood five minutes out there in that oven, and I wondered how the bible ever managed to happen. They must have had different weather back then – or trees – or rivers and shade. Good Lord, the desert is harsh."
- Cheryl

gonna have a new poll every week or so i think...provided we get some ideas for some. let's here them in the comments below please!
the next one may be something like 'can civilian casualties be justified in pre-emptive strikes during tent warfare' or maybe 'who was most to blame for steve getting his head punched in at greenbelt?' i blame jasmine...

This is the echo weblog. An echo is somewhere between a voice and no voice, somewhere between hearing and not hearing, and somewhere between knowing and not knowing. It's a place of faith and doubt. It's for all those trying to shed their snake skins of tradition, pride, ignorance, prejudice, and trying to work things out for themselves. It's for those caught dancing in the dichotomy of clubbing and christianity, and still trying to follow Christ.
a few of us were discussing what songs the disciples hummed to themselves as they walked home on ascension day....which do you think it was?
'leaving on a jet plane' - like in armageddon (the film that is, not the real thing)
anything by 'air'
'lifted' by 'the lighthouse family'
'up, up and away' by 'andy williams'
'i believe i can fly' by 'r kelly'
'reach for the stars' by 's club'
'stairway to heaven' by 'led zeppelin' (or rolf harris, depends on your taste)
'the only way is up' by 'yazz and the plastic population'
'i'll fly away' by 'alison krauss'
'movin on up' by 'primal scream'
