Well hello, Pool, you old friend. It's been too long, and I'm glad my foot's plantar fasciitis arranged another meeting. You are kind, and your gentle swells do console me. 2700m (1.5mi) swim in 52:58 for Kannon today. Tomorrow, back in the water... #iswimforKANNON #ir4 #irunforKANNON
Dear #TRIAorthopedic, Please accept my utmost, heartfelt gratitude not only for my therapist exceptional care for me in physical therapy today, but also for the excellent - and free! - child care you provided on the spot with such joy and friendliness! This mama appreciates! ❤️, a
Dear #KimMardashian, You are absolutely, unequivocally, certifiably delusional. I know a great blog you can read on REAL marriage, and a great therapist to call when the honeymoon's over and you guys are ready. ❤️, Amy
I love that these to instagrams popped up back to back on my feed: two badass finishers of #badwater135, with amazing crews featuring my IG friends (okay - honestly, it's mostly just that I stalk them...) @yellowrunner and @ryanknapp. Because ALL the cool people (read: incredible runners) crew their friends through the most epic races in the world. (And, of course, they run their own epic races too...) Anyway. #BAM #runlove

*Unless

unless1Today, I read some people talking about how absolutely certain they are that Jesus would never ever hire a homosexual, and how appalling is the very thought.

And I got confused.

Because The Story of God as read in the Bible involved the “employment” of habitual adulterers (Abraham, David, Israel, etc), prostitutes (Rahab, Mary Magdalene, Israel), murderers (Moses, David again, S/Paul, Israel), greedy thieving tax collectors (Matthew, Israel), violence-prone ear-cutting-off-deniers (Peter, Israel), hot-headed zealots (James and John, Israel), idolators (Israel, Israel, Israel)…

You know, all these blatant sinners who, despite meeting God over and over, kept right on sinning and also kept right on being covered by His blood, which necessarily either covers all or none.

So… I’m just thinking that among such company in God’s “employ,” a monogamous gay person might be the least of His concerns.

It’s not about sinners, anyway, or about sin. After all, The first Adam lumped us all together as “hopeless, Unless…”

It’s about Jesus, the Other Adam… the Unless.
