Random and Collected Friday Thoughts

A few thoughts, links, etc. to wrap up the week:

I read and wrote a review of Jo Saxton’s More Than Enchanting posted over at The Burner Blog.

Also on the Burner was part two of my Ecclesia 2012 recap.

Each week our house sets aside one night together where a week where we eat, catch up, hang out, laugh, tell stories, and pray together. We’ve been doing this for 2.5 years now, and recently we’ve started singing a bit. The last two weeks we’ve sung All Creatures of Our God and King. The words were written by Saint Francis in 1225. And they are good:

Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfoldest blessings on our way,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
The flowers and fruits that in thee grow,
Let them His glory also show.

And thou most kind and gentle Death,
Waiting to hush our latest breath,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou leadest home the child of God,
And Christ our Lord the way hath trod.

We had a bundle of people at our house Wednesday night for a “crowded house/oikos/household” dinner. My friend Cory and I cooked up some southern soul food – including my first attempt at Hush Puppies (huge success!).
