Simeon Meets Jesus


Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:

Sunday Stealing


1. If someone wanted to really understand you, what would they read, watch, and listen to?

They would listen to the story of someone rescued from darkness. 

They would watch a baby learning to stand, then crawl, then walk.

They would listen to the joyful sound (simcha) of a person born blind who can suddenly see. They would read the Word of God, the Bible, cover to cover, slowly, with purpose.

2. Have you ever found a writer who thinks just like you? 

Frank Herbert, maybe.

3. Do you care about your ethnicity? 

It doesn't matter, but I am curious.

4. What musical artists have you most felt connected to over your lifetime? 

Before the Lord changed my heart, a plethora of screaming ninnies as blind as me. 

Now, none.

5. Are you an artist? 


6. Dog person or cat person? 

More dog than cat, though more alpaca and llama than either of those.

7. Inside or outdoors? 


8. Five most influential books over your lifetime: 

The Bible

Same Kind of Different As Me (Ron Hall and Denver Moore)

Hinds Feet on High Places (Hannah Hurnard)

Battlefield of the Mind (Meyer)

Transgression (Randall Ingermanson)

9. Would you rather be in Middle Earth, Narnia, Hogwarts, or somewhere else? 

Middle Earth with the Earth-saving Hobbits or Narnia with Lion Jesus. 

10. List the top 5 things you spend the most time doing, in order.





More laundry

11. Have you ever felt like you had a “mind-meld” with someone? 


You all keep your minds to yourselves! 


12. Could you live as a hermit? 

Yes, but with my kids and husband there.

13. Do you feel like your outside appearance is a fair representation of the “real you”? 

I am what I appear to be.

14. Three songs that you connect with right now. 

Simon Khorolskiy's "Heaven is my Home" (an oldie he re-did)

Paul Wilbur's "Shalom Jerusalem"

The Shema

15. Pick one of your favorite quotes.

"In this galaxy, there is a mathematical probability of three million 

Earth-type planets. And in all of the universe, 

three million million galaxies like this. 

And in all of that 

and perhaps more, 

only one of each of us."

Dr. Leonard McCoy

(This appeared in a Star Trek episode written by Paul Schneider.)

Do you know who He is?


Matthew 2:6

And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,

  are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;

  for from you shall come a ruler

  who will shepherd my people Israel.

Micah 5:2

But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,

  who are too little to be among the clans of Judah,

  from you shall come forth for me

  one who is to be ruler in Israel,

  whose coming forth is from of old,

  from ancient days.

Everything Sad is Coming Untrue


In the way the shadows hide

When the sun begins to rise

And in the way the world comes alive

At the first hint of spring

The frozen rivers run

The death of winter comes undone

Whispers of Kingdom come

While the bluebird sings


Everything that I thought I knew


Everything sad is coming untrue

From the war torn city streets

To the trash the slum dogs eat

It seems so hard to believe

And meaningless to pray

But in Rwanda's killing fields

Forgiveness blooms and heals

And the power of love reveals

The Kingdom come today as

Life is coming alive

Death is destined to die

And love

When we learn to live again

And let forgiveness win

There's no wound that love won't mend

And finally redeem

The Son of God woke in the ground

The angel laid the soldiers down

To bring the King his crown

Oh, I believe

Life is coming alive

Death is destined to die

And love

Jason Gray
