This is a good point, John.

He follows the parable of the rich fool (12: 13-21) with exhortations to live without anxiety. Worry about food or clothing is unnecessary in light of God's providence. "The nations" worry about such things--that is to say, people who think and act in light of the dominant culture's assumptions will find themselves riven with uncertainty and anxiety.
Why so? The dominant culture operates out of the myth of scarcity, i.e. that there is not enough and one must compete for scarce resources. The Jesus movement, on the other hand, is to live in light of God's abundance in which there is plenty for everyone. (It would be impossible to attain a world population of 7 billion people unless there is a significant abundance of food.)

What fascinates me most is that these sensations can be interpreted as either anxiety or excitement.

I can't believe how cruel you are, taking that child away from the TV to a beautiful sculpture garden on a sunny summer day!

Looks like a wonderful place -- what a cool mosaic.

And you - so FUNNY- as always.

Did you rescue the penstemon?

The only negatives of our stay would be that the wi-fi wasn’t free and our TV didn’t work very well and there were only the basic five channels. If we were staying without BG it wouldn’t be an issue but with her going to bed at 7pm it was a struggle to keep ourselves entertained in the evening.

I laughed with delight at the ad campaign when I spotted it yesterday. Not my style, but totally get what he was going for, and thought there were some interesting fashion ideas that I wouldn't expect from this line. The campaign (some images more than others) remind me of Kate Spade ad campaigns of past. Remember the one with the preppy NYC girl visited by her preppy family? This feels similar but a bit off. Though I did post the intro image with the jeep full of stuff on my wall. Thanks for sharing!

I'm interested in such offer,The sound quality in these podcasts is really poor. I feel bad about complaining about something that is free, but I think it is important.
