So with the guild challenge in flimsy form and off my wall, tonight I began trimming the HSTs and pressing the units and playing around with layouts. And now I'm more uncertain than ever! I think I'm leaning towards the small block on the right. Anyone out there have a strong preference that she wants to share?
I've had this little graphic on my desktop for a few weeks just because I like it. Tonight I thought it warranted wider distribution. I spend most of my waking hours working in a place where difference is celebrated, not feared. Gay and straight kids alike observe the annual Day of Silence. We gather weekly in the Meeting House for Meeting for Worship and I understand that this week everyone who is so moved will be wearing a hoodie. I'm so proud of the place I work, that this is not only permitted, but encouraged.
I wish that everyone had the opportunity to explore difference in a healthy way, to respect and not recoil. Our littlest kids know how to sing "This Little Light of Mine" and it occurs to me that if we expect our students to take what they've learned out into the world to begin to make a difference, then this blog is where my little light can be seen. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
