Holy Week begins like this? Dead babies, another war beginning, shootings? The Lamb of God slain for the sins of the world---and we keep on slaying one another! But here, here is hope and rest: http://www.leslieleylandfields.com

It's my turn to weigh in. In all the fury and name-calling, here's what we're missing from this movie: "Three HUGE Things 'Noah' Gets Right---And We Christians Have Gotten Wrong." http://www.leslieleylandfields.com

Melinda--there's more to say on both sides of the movie, but this is what moved me most.  Yes indeed, would love people to calm down a bit and be who they're supposed to be!!

Can you dance? Are you happy? I can't dance (see girl in purple leotard)  And how to be happy with missing planes, mudslides, sickness? But I am nearly dancing now. Come+ see some fantastic Uncensored Happy Dancing---and the truest words that make Joy possible. http://www.leslieleylandfields.com/

We're Killing Real Forgiveness! Everywhere I go, people tell me, "Forgiveness is something you do for yourself!" A way-too-famous mega-church pastor said it again on CBS This Morning last month. See if you can guess the 5 other lies we're telling about forgiveness:http://www.churchleaders.com/pastors/pastor-articles/173611-why-forgiveness-is-a-gift-you-give-yourself-is-a-dangerous-myth.html

When we are overwhelmed with our unworthiness:
(http://www.leslieleylandfields.com)
Two Prayers for the Sacred Scared:
"Our Father
Who dwells in heaven
(And here in the hearts of those you are vanquishing),
May Your Kingdom come. 
May mine come undone--- 
     every work of my hand,
     every word from my tongue
     that towers and babbles against you. "

Do animals and fish really fall from the sky? (They do.) Now we know why. And what is just as strange? Our avoidance of the one thing we so desperately need. Here it is. And I promise you, you will rise from these words cleaner, stronger, purer: http://www.leslieleylandfields.com

Story
Tagline
Alaska-dweller, author of 8 books, galavanting speaker, lover of all things, true, lovely and possible.
Introduction
I'm the author of 8 books, a national speaker, blogger, lover of all things beautiful and true, especially in matters of theology  and culture. Some favorite topics: the spirituality of food, parenting, wilderness, incarnational living, forgiveness. My books include Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers: Finding Freedom from Hate and Hurt, Surviving the Island of Grace, The Spirit of Food: 34 Writers on Feasting and Fasting Toward God. And to complicate this bio, I live on Kodiak Island, Alaska, where I work in commercial fishing with my husband and six children (mostly grown) on a remote wilderness island. From there, I direct the Harvester Island WIlderness Workshop. More here:
