Morgan’s Grove

While I may or may not move things from my pbwiki “The Grove“, I wanted to at least have a link to it here. In addition to several articles from Street Prophets, it has a couple of other pieces I think are worthwhile.

Morgan on Street Prophets

Street ProphetsWhile going through saved blog posts I looked fondly back at Street Prophets (formerly at streetprophets.com). It seems that what some of us feared has come to pass, in that the site seems far less interfaith than it once was. Still, it was good for a time. As of this writing, the latest post with a “pagan” tag was in April 2011, over a year ago.

So until/unless I move stuff here, I provide a link to my diaries on Street Prophets, dated between 30 Sep 2005 and 31 Oct 2006. It’s not often I get in on something like that early enough to snag the usename “Morgan” :-).

EDIT 30 Oct 2013: Street Prophets is now a blog at Daily Kos, so it looks like all of the old stuff is gone. Packrat that I am I saved copies of all of Roland’s and my posts, so I’ve added them here. See the Street Prophets category.

US soldiers in Iraq asked to pray for Bush

Finally back, in spirit as well as body. Roland’s father crossed over relatively peacefully on 3/23.

The news just keeps getting worse and worse, and not just in terms of body counts. Sometimes the spin is so blatant we have to wonder how anyone falls for it. Here’s the latest item that turned our stomachs, from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Sunday, March 30, 2003. 2:55am (AEST):
