In lieu of trying to belong to any number of societies: Chesterton, Sherlock Holmes, the Inklings, and so on: I propose and establish one of my own. Don your intelligence cap at the door; dust off your logic and imagination; did you bring your inspiration and encouragement? We are shapers, my friends; lit lamps; light-bringers. Bring quotes*; poetry should be uplifting and thoughtful, or witty and clever, (or both). Humor is encouraged; laughter is invited back. Pull up a chair. Anyone for tea?

* C.S. LEWIS, J.R.R. TOLKIEN, SHERLOCK HOLMES, G.K. CHESTERTON, N.D. WILSON, AND P.G. WODEHOUSE, ARE ENCOURAGED

I count it lost

I just had to share this song today. 'Boasting' is beautiful musically and lyrically; gospel-driven, and radical in the way I want to be. I appreciate the ministry that Lecrae has of spreading the Truth through his music. That is what we all should be doing: witnessing and proclaiming wherever we find ourselves in life. Sometimes we forget that life is a serious fight, and we need words like these to help fight the fog.

Olivia,

This is so not my style of music but what beautiful truth he sings of! I am so impressed with the mature message of this song, and the heart that is expressed in it.

Thank you for sharing it.
