• Another Trump Official Quits And Warns Of Looming Mass Exodus Of Staffers
    An 11-year veteran at the State Department announced in a recent op-ed that she has had enough of Trump’s behavior and can no longer serve the federal government with him in charge. She went on to warn that she isn’t the only one who feels this way, and that there could easily be a mass exodus of experienced government officials leaving rather than serving under Trump.

    Bethany Milton spent 11 years working for the U.S. federal government as a consular officer in the Foreign Service. But in an op-ed for the New York Times, Milton explains that this summer, she finally decided to leave the State Department — and the straw that broke the camel’s back was hearing supporters of President Donald Trump chanting, “Send her back, send her back” in reference to Rep. Ilhan Omar during a recent rally.

    “When President Trump’s supporters chanted, ‘Send her back!,’ I took that as a charge for me as well,” Milton asserts. “I asked the Trump Administration to send me back from my overseas posting, shipping home the family, foreign language textbooks and various tchotchkes from ‘shithole countries’ that I’ve collected in my years as a United States diplomat. I am joining a growing list of Foreign Service officers who refuse to serve this administration any longer.”

  • What Would It Mean for Humans to Become Data?
    In the premiere of the HBO/BBC miniseries Years and Years, two parents are worried. Their teenage daughter Bethany has been hiding behind a 3D animated emoji mask and has scheduled a talk with them. Trying to figure out what they’re up against, they sneak a peek at her internet searches. When they discover that she’s been searching for information about being trans, they’re relieved; they can handle a transgender child.

    Except when it comes time for their talk, Bethany tells her parents she’s transhuman and that she wants to “live forever as information.” ....

  • #Oil and #Spices”
    April 18
    #Nicodemus, who had first come to Him by night, also came, bringing a #mixture of #myrrh and #aloes, about a hundred #pounds #weight. So they took the #body of #Jesus and #bound it in #linen #wrappings with the spices, as is the #burial custom of the #Jews. #John19:39-40
    Listen to #todaysDevotional


    The amount of spices brought to #embalm Jesus was #generous and #abundant – on par with #royalBurials. This was a #lavish #display of #affection and #respect. Though we have already #seen how Jesus was #maliciously and #cruelly #treated #before and #during His #crucifixion, after His #death His body was #cared for in a #royal #fashion, pointing toward His #role as our #King.


    The spices referred to in these #verses are ones that played a significant role in the events of #PassionWeek. #Spikenard, a #rare and #costly #fragrantOil having an #earthy, #wood-like #aroma, was used by #Mary of #Bethany to anoint the #head and #feet of the #Messiah. Spikenard speaks of the #Bride's #extravagant #adoration of and #intimacy with the #Bridegroom, in #total #abandonment, #withoutRegard to #cost.

    #Myrrh, an #exotic #Biblical #spice, was used in #purification and #beautification #rites, in the #formula for the #HolyAnointingOil, and in #burialSpices. #Bitter to the #taste but #sweet to the #smell, myrrh in the #spiritual sense speaks of #dying to self to become a " #sweetSmelling #savor" to the #Lord.

    #Hyssop is a low #growing #evergreen, #cultivated for its #flowerTops, and #leaves which have an #intense #mintyAroma. It #symbolizes #spiritualCleansing by the #refiningFire of the #HolySpirit: " #PurgeMeWithHyssop, and I shall be #clean: #washMe, and I shall be #whiterThanSnow."
    In #temple days, #incense containing #frankincense, a sweet #balsamic #treeResin, was placed on the #InnerAltar of the #Tabernacle and #burned #morning and #evening. #Frankincense was also one of the #gifts brought by the #wiseMen soon after #Christ’s #birth, #foreshadowing the #fact that He was #born to #die – on our #behalf.

    #Imagine the combined aroma of all of the #scents of the various spices, remember the price Jesus paid, and the price paid by those who buried Him so #honorably. Shouldn't we #lavish our #love on One who has #loved us so #generously #Himself? In fact, of all the #gifts you can #give to #God, one that He holds most #precious is your #heart, your #personalDevotion. #Psalm141:2 likens our #prayers to " #incense." Why not #surrender your #heart #afresh in a #prayer of #praise and #devotion, a #sacrifice#pleasingToTheLord?”


    #Prayer:
    Jesus, I want to be among those who #honor You. I want to give the gift that means most to You – my heart, #soul, and #body. All that I am, all that I’ll ever be. Help me #holdNothingBack. You are a #worthyKing, completely #deserving of my #totalDedication. As a #fragrant #offering, as best I know how, I #surrender my all to You – just as You surrendered Your all for me. https://mailchi.mp/92651cab379e/last-supper-p11xhrx3h5-452225?e=9cbe669f39

    "Oil and Spices"
    The amount of spices brought to embalm Jesus is generous and abundant - on par with royal burials.

  • Jesus and the fig tree
    Mark 11:12-25King James Version (KJV) 12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: 13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for...
