I just got back from a fantastic vacation in Nawlins (New Orleans) where I spent 2 weeks with my Parents in their life to see what their life was like there, not zipping around, doing crazy things and such Nawlins is infamous for. Of course, I did a little fabric shopping while there. Being a bit out in the suburbs, I wasn’t close to a lot of fabric stores except Hancock Fabrics and the fabric sections in several Wal-mart stores. Yet, this was great because they had what I was looking for, which was a lot of licenced “geek” themed fabrics at affordable prices not found in Canada… or at least in Halifax where I live. As a result of all that, my fabric shopping haul this time probably won’t interest too many of my lady friends in the Atlantic Sewing Guild.

Music I First Heard in 2014 – Muhammad Ali (Black Superman) by Johnny Wakelin and the Kinshasa Band
These posts are for music I first heard in 2014 which I love and want to share. This one is just super! Great story, great groove, great tune to sing to. I don’t know why it’s not more popular and frequently played! Great video, too!
I just LOVE it! I can even shadow box dance to it, lol!
There are other videos with just the music, and not video and audio clips of Ali but not as fun, in my opinion. That’s the stuff that inspired this song!

Today’s Sermon: Jesus Without Underwear
Recently, like many other congregations around the United States, we all went to see Man of Steel to better understand Jesus through the remarkable parallels found in Superman. I am serious. There were many other congregations whose pastors also led them to see Man of Steel (Daily Telegraph). And here some of you thought I was a heretic!
One aspect of the Man of Steel which we did not address as a metaphor to Jesus, but which got your attention and confused you, was the loss of his red underwear from his previous image. What did that mean???
Was there new research to suggest Jesus went commando underneath that robe? On a more practical level, should you be going commando to be more in the image of his Holiness??? Continue reading
