Outside My Circle
I am several things.
...Follower of Jesus
I am not necessarily ashamed of any of those items. But I am aware that each brings its own blessings and subversive temptations.
I don't try to flee what I am, but I do try to get outside of myself, my perceptions, my assumptions about the world.
Which is why I hunt for people like Propaganda, the spoken word poet and rapper; they help me understand which aspects of what I believe are universal and which ones only work in the white-middle-class-evangelical-world in which I largely work, play, and worship.
So props to Propaganda.
Keep looking for people who stretch your imagination.
