An interview with Rev. Oliver White on his support for same-sex marriage–and what it’s cost.

An interview with Rev. Oliver White, pastor of the only predominantly African American Congregational Church in Minnesota, on his support for same-sex marriage–and what it’s cost.

Charles Sanders Peirce Provided The Only Viable Basis for Future Theology

Charles Sanders Peirce did not believe in past theologies  But only in what logic showed as true empirically  He was a realist

He did not see himself as the great summarizer  because such a role for anyone is by his logic impossible
Peirce was and is a pioneer  in building a future that integrates science 
with ethics and morality  without falling into the traps
of formulaic evangelicalism  or formulaic humanism
Always moving
Continuity Never finished
Fallibility Daily musement Sweet serenity

ORIGINAL TEXT

This is the sign we need to get our heads in order A world where mayhem is the sound of lifeOr one that moves with stealth to saner placesWhere we don't go to sleep with dreams of strife
This is the PAC ad of the GOP opponentto win the seat that mayhem took from Gabby Giffords This what mayhem creates to set brand new cross hairsTo hit a spot where fear trumps any reasonand turn the glass so empty that it breaksThis is the thing we must take into our sad mindsAnd process for the sickness that it isand then go to the polls and turn this dolt outHe and his gun and all the GOPand then with wider eyes rest easily

All dualism divides into two

All dualism divides into two  All unity removes opposing sides  A binary approach is but a tool  Which never should subvert the truth it hides

The world we live in changes with the time

The world we live in changes with the time The world we live in changes as names changeAs bridges burn and altered circumstanceCreates circumferences anew  
In time circumferences are goneAnd worlds begin to vanish from our sightAnd then we see the world we knewWas not the world but just our worldOur word for our realityNow lost in dreams and memories
We cannot hold what does not  lastWe can't be captives of our past
