Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, 

when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, when we arrive safely because we sailed too close to the shore. 


Disturb us, Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess,
we have lost our thirst for the waters of life, 
having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity, 
and in our efforts to build a new earth, 
we have allowed our vision of the new heaven to dim. 


Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas, 
where storms will show your mastery, 
where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. 
We ask you to push back the horizon of our hopes, 
and to push us into the future in strength, courage, hope, and love. 
This we ask in the name of our Captain, who is Jesus Christ.

1. First cut up some strawberries and soak em in vodka for as long as you can bear to wait (if you do it overnight it’s even better)
2. Then add some lemonade.
3. Stir and serve with mint.
4. Be drunk.

laughing at how CNN went into one of the looted businesses in Ferguson and spoke to the owner. the reporter started asking all these leading questions that were clearly setting up answers that expressed anger that their businesses were broken into. 

The owner was like “actually I just want justice for Mike Brown im not worried about material things”

Kuddos to that owner!!! Very wise!

A year ago we stayed up till 3 am talking
And today I don’t know how to even say hey

Mike Brown was being threatening towards the officer, attacked him, and tried to take his gun. While yes, the officer is most likely racist for telling him to get out of the street, Mike Brown was far from innocent in this tragedy. He wasn't trying to run away or shot in the back like some witnesses claim. All shots were from the front. I know it's easier to trust a popular post than research it yourself, but that's how misinformation spreads. And it spreads like wildfire on tumblr. God bless.

I assume you haven’t researched Mike Brown’s autopsy report.

He was shot multiple times, once in the head, entering through the top and exiting through the base of the neck, and multiple times in the hand and arm consistent with someone shot while kneeling and holding their hands above their head.

I suggest you do your research before suggesting he was being threatening to the officer.
