For Advent this year I’m participating in the #AdventWord project from Anglican Communion’s Global Advent Calendar with a daily meditation on the word for the day.

“Leave safety behind. Put your body on the line. Stand before the people you fear and speak your mind – even if your voice shakes.” – Maggie Kuhn

Song of the Week: “Brushfire” by Ikebe Shakedown

On a chilly day one can warm up with the Afrobeat sounds of Ikebe Shakedown, the 70s funk revival septet from New York.  “Brushfire” should get you dancing.
