Favorite Meme Day @thegoodgodabove

In these troubled times, this meme speaks to everything that I think and feel. I cannot stress this enough. 

As a side note, growing up I was not taught to fear God as others I knew did - I could not quite ever come to grips with the images of a vengeful, angry version of God that was just waiting to pounce when I messed up. I've always had the image of God as a driving buddy who would sit patiently in the passenger seat until I realized that we might be better off if He were driving instead. And when I would do that, He would be all "I got this". I found myself in a lot of unexpected and amazing places that way. When you see everything as a punishment, everything becomes one. When you see everything more positively, well, you get the idea. 

Seems to me that the good news of the New Testament was all about "you don't have to do all those things like twirling three times in a circle to get forgiven, anymore, I've made it easy for you is ask for forgiveness... done? Great!"... but we still get Old Testament thinking even to this day (and I'm sure we'll see a LOT of that in the coming months now that Mayor Pete seems to have a real shot at the Presidency... oh, that'll be ... "fun"! Lol). 

Meanwhile, the Twitter account @TheGoodGodAbove is always great fun for clear thinking bite size theology 'erring' on the side of humanity ....and humor. We could use a lot more of that these days, that's for sure!
