Shed A Little Light

Hello Inclusion Network...



A few have asked about "Shed A Little Light" which was offered to everyone in Sign Language and in remembrance of my Grandparents.



The song is written by James Taylor and the version I played was sung by Julie Michels and Alana Bridgewater with the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto Choir, from their "Connected: SONGS FOR THE HEART" CD.



For the song or CD or other music they perform, you can find various music download sites from… Continue

Gerima Brings the Beat to Cambridge

Let's see if Peter can post a blog.



I was invited to spend the Friday after the Institute with Community Living Cambridge for a day of thinking, learning, music and stories. After meeting and being wowed by Gerima Harvey in Toronto - and learning that he lived in the Waterloo area - I asked him if he would be interested in joining me for part of the day, if he happened to be available. He slowly nodded his head and smiled (you can picture it) and said, "Sure, if I can get… Continue

The story of the sleeping slave

(Apologies in advance for the non professional translation)



A wise man once told this story to his wondering student.

"Enjoying the view a man was walking on a beautiful road, just being happy for where his feet were taking him, when on the side of the road he saw a man deeply sleeping .

As he got closer ,he realized the man was a slave and based on the serene expression on his face , his paceful gestures as well as some the words he could understand, he knew what the slave… Continue

fat man on little wheels

I went to a conference in Toronto and brought my “Bike Friday”. It folds up and has little wheels.



“Hey buddy, you still there?” That’s Sam- a carpenter and the front racer- I really can’t answer him because I’m totally wasted and out of breath. It’s all a stupid mistake and I should have stayed at the hotel where there is beer, good company, and warm food. Now it’s almost dark and I’m 50 kilometers away from my hotel bed.



I really don’t like conferences. - Too many… Continue

What a conference!

I cannot believe this conference. Every conference I've ever been to for 28 years have been very informational. I cram my head full of information, then rush back hoping I don't forget it. By the time I get back, I've forgotten most of it. Within a month, it is almost all gone.



This conference is transformational! It is designed around learning, totally. It took the first day and a half of deep dialogue before an agenda could be designed around the learning needs of the group. The… Continue

the Inclusion Press LOGO...





Our logo is a combination of three ‘korus’. A koru is a ‘fiddle head’ - an ‘unfolding fern’ that symbolizes new life, hope, eternity. It is a fractal, with endless and beautiful repetition of a pattern. Koru is a Maori word chosen because of our deep connections with the Tuhoe tribe of the Aotearoha (New Zealand) Maoris. All three korus are reaching out - growing - making connections.



There are many more threes in the Inclusion… Continue

Five Rules

Around Broadway United Methodist Church in Indianapolis you'll find in our conversation something we got from John McKnight that he calls "The Five Rules to Keep From Being the Agent of the Devil in the Middle of the Church." (I know it's a long title -- but it really does just roll off the tongue).



The five rules go like this:

1) Never do something for others that they can do for themselves.

2) Find each others gifts, talents, and capacities and find a place for them in… Continue

Over the past three and a half years I've been blogging my personal, emotional and spiritual journey on-line. This has proven to be a powerful way for me to reflect on my journey, to remember the lessons learned, to ask more questions, and to have a way to remember and come back to all of this.



It has ended up being the toughest, more painful three years of my life. They… Continue
