Well...SAFE IN Pella
The $50 million refugee city was not harmed. It’s still a ‘fig newton’ of imagination (pun intended). But I concentrate on little things, being taught, such as giving receipts. A receipt for @ $10K in books and tapes donation, might have yielded @ $3000 in tax saving, which, if invested in bitcoin (I’ve spent time, money, and effort on worse) would have yielded 10,000, and @$10K, less taxes, ‘you were given refuge, give refuge (compare Exodus), the $50 million is not out of the question.
I don’t know if the head of the sodomite club is still President of the student body, nor if sexile still occurs. I know that A. G.’s suggestion of sermons before, during and after on the theology of TULIP is NOT being done, not is Sanjee Benjamin Ang’s street preaching being honored. This great potential for discipling during Tulip Time is not on-capitalized, and the ‘made more evil by modern science’ treatment of the elderly resulted in Godparents For Eldsters, not on-capitalized.
But I ‘empty’ and concentrate on what comes to me in that emptiness. It all reminds me of Rosenstock’s contention that the original All Souls, that everyone would have the dignity of being judged—guilty no shamed, Pastor Dan—is missing. More at link.
(I post this outline that came to me in the night. The gist is able to be apprehended).
As Israel was taken out of the bondage of Egypt, it should take the world out of bondage. Given freedom, give freedom. Given refuge, give refuge.
Pella safe, and refugee city (Jones’ ‘Dismissing Jesus’s) unharmed.
From the $100 million. $10k donation, $3k tax savings, into Bitcoin @30 cents—10,000—x $10,ooo(middle) but taxed =?. (I got no receipt.) Little things mean a lot. And so I look back on myself, and see what ‘little things’ apply to me. I’ve invested time and money and effort into much weirder things.
Learn Girard, don’t scapegoat it. The perhaps mis-typed ‘damnage’ (sic) would apply at some other place and time, though.
Providence telling me ‘empty’. Thomas Hilleke body theology book, CST brown dry spot (comes off) in valley between right thumb and first finger. One of my therapists looked up in an acupuncture book.
Cultivate empty—written before on most of this. Thus, ERH in settings.
Came to me last week, instruments for orchestra playing symphony of history—great worth!
Also, both/and math! Take the Chalcedonian both/and and compare it to the Sheffer Stroke (not both the one and the other) from which can be deduced all 5 of the operators of 'Principia Mathematica'. This indicates a need for a Christian/Chalcedonian mathematics. But yin/yang (with dot of the other in each) and Shroedinger's cat?
So I continue. Bouncing around as I wait ERH and JBJ (all audios, JBJ until Big Disappointment)
Another empty, 56th Reunion. Wanted to talk to valedictorian, first Ph. D. in nursing—nope. As far as Reacher compared to Hammer. Didn’t get to Hammer avenged buddies, Reacher...what was he, especially these two in light of ERH’s ‘American Social History—the re-integration of the veteran into peacetime society, AND lack of true speech, lack of declaration of war. Later: A Lodging for Wayfaring Men’—Galt’s Gulch on web, Jeremiah Nine.
Another: Twelve Word Platform—‘Norman Thomas’ Universities to professors. Local schools to local teachers. Direct Appropriation.
Yes, 75th Personhood Day—when one ENTERS one’s mother’s womb, @ 9 month/40 weeks before ‘birth’day.
And, in July A.D. 2018: ‘What instrument do you play in the orchestra playing The Symphony Of History? What would you like to play? What instruments are there? Which need to be invented, as the pianoforte was? What’s the history of the composition of the composition and of the instrument set in the orchestra? I’m thinking math (Asimov), speech (speech thinkers, Wolfe) memory…prayer…
So, work and covenants, etc., empty, empty, empty.
Don’t worry about actually getting something done, artist is child all life, thus Chuckster and work and commute empty. A liability into an asset. Praise the Providential Lord, GodTrinity.
As Pastor Dan’s ‘Shame Interrupted’ I get to speak, I’m just guilty, not shamed.
Thus ERH ‘driving force’ All Souls, each gets dignity of being judged, not thrown on burning heap.
Also ERH in my email settings:
ever in your life had a bright idea, or a new instinct, or a
new change of heart,
Sir, make this the cornerstone of your understanding
of the universe and you
will understand that the universe begins with creation. And
it ends in incarnation, because that's the experience of every potent and creative
man in the world.
But you look outside and try to deduce by your little brain,
not by your experience of your heart how the world begins, and how it should be
run. You'll never
solve it, gentlemen. You'll remain a selfish, inarticulate
animal. If the spirit moves
you, you will see how simple
things are, gentlemen. Love begins, and hope
keeps you going, and faith. And in the end, your grandchildren
will bless you.’
ERH—Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy, from a Dartmouth lecture series conclusion
Love in King Jesus,

PS: Even the writing of such an idea summary as this causes my blood pressure to rise to a bad level, though the systolic top number is usually controlled by deep breathing/yawning, and the variability in the heart rate is good. I’m under medical care, and 3 supplemental protocols, and I’m starting fast walking, almost jogging in recovery. And more therapist, etc., but my problem seems to me to be more mental. There’s much more I can and will do. Is ‘100 the new 50’? I’m very tired—is that Providence telling me to listen—to small things? Another: 12 Word Platform—‘Norman Thomas’. Universities to professors. Local schools to local teachers. Direct Appropriation. Another: I think that one of the key events in present time is that the Spirit of exnihilation (creating something from nothing, or into nothing) is leaving 'the state'/Federal Reserve, and going to individuals and groups. He mentions crowdfunding ind ICOs, and other things.
PPS: FB: Hoffa, as he entered prison: 'I'm one of the most powerful men in America. If they can do this to me, they can do it to anyone'.
Thus, Creveld 'The Rise and Decline of the State': Lack of justice, lack of sound money for elderly.
Barzun's 'From Dawn to Decadence' says we'll learn to read again from monuments, and the corporations will bridge ethno-linguistic areas.
So, pray 1 Timothy 2:1-4, Get Ready To Help People Locally, do your calling--the most important thing you can do at which you'd be most difficult to replace.
In addition to the art form of the next era, and the liturgy/lectionary of books, here are some things I probably won’t do--Todmorden, Kenya encrypted currencies for economic development, STEM (femmes), Koppel (grid) and chiastically, Christian Judge Judy.

As comment: 1 Timothy 2:1-4 King James Version (KJV)
2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
