1. Moving to Memphis! 

My wife Kat and I love Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where she is Co-Pastor at University Baptist Church, but Kat has been called to serve as Senior Pastor at First Baptist Church Memphis, a venerable, progressive, inclusive church with deep roots in Memphis… 

…and I’m very much looking forward to finding my place in the vibrant Memphis music community. I'll also be much closer to my family in Memphis and Tupelo. And I was born in Memphis, so this feels in some ways like a homecoming.

4. Poem of the Month: The New World 

The New World 

I like to say 
there are some blessings 
you can’t get out of 
even when you’re feeling bad 
and hating on yourself 
believing every sideways thing 
ever shouted at you 
going all the way back to the cradle 
until somebody comes along 
and sees you better than you ever did 
or could on down past 
what the therapists call 
the false self and the Buddhists 
call the non-self and the ego 
thought was the true self 
which then melts in a puddle 
like the Wicked Witch of the West 
and whatever is left there 
swimming in the mess 
begins to gather and rise 
and shake itself off 
put on its glasses and 
crawl onto the beach 
of the new world.

5. Recommended: John Spillane’s new album “100 Snow White Horses” 

I’m a big fan of the man from Passage West (County Cork, Ireland). He’s made me laugh and cry and want to write (and give up writing) on many occasions. And now he has a fine new album called “100 Snow White Horses.” 

John’s website is HERE 

And if you don’t know John’s music, I also strongly ecommend “The Best of John Spillane: So Far, So Good."

6. Food for Thought for our crazy times… 

"Giving brings happiness at every stage of its expression. We experience joy in forming the intention to be generous; we experience joy in the actual act of giving something; and we experience joy in remembering the fact that we have given." 

—Siddhartha Gautama, The Buddha 

[As quoted in Surya Das, Awakening the Buddha Within: Eight Steps to Enlightenment: Tibetan Wisdom for the Western World (Broadway Books: 1997), 207.]

Till next time: Maximum Peace, Love and Understanding, 
TK
