shout out.

My great friend Steve is obsessed with music (and, side note, lots of people are obsessed with HIS music, cause it rocks!!).

Following hours of listening research, he made a list of the 31 almost-best* songs released in 2010. Every day for the month of January he will be posting on one here.

So go check it and fall in love with some new tunes!

*He calls them the 31 best songs. But despite the FIVE options I suggested from the Weepies' new album, they are not represented AT ALL. Thus... the 31 almost-best. (The songs I suggested were Please Speak Well of Me, Made for Sunny Days, Hummingbird, Not a Lullaby, and Empty Your Hands, in case you want to know the REAL best :-)).

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
