A few reasonable words to start your weekend conversations. 02
Happy weekend, all! We're headed into a semi-normal weekend around here. Also, plenty of football. What are your plans?
A dose of conversation-starters for all your weekend conversations. And if you and I happen to bump into each other in the next couple of days, I'd love to hear what you think after these reads! (or, you could always leave me a comment below!)
• We've talked a lot here about Austin's new neighborhood for the chronically homeless. I found Portland's emerging solution to be somewhat similar to Community First! Village. I do think some of the differences in philosophy (e.g., the city of Portland does not allow residents of the tiny house village to stay longer than 2 years)via Yes! Magazine
* You can talk about the Iowa caucus if you want, but maybe it'd be a good idea to read this first? via First Things • Are you planning any sort of fast during Lent? Apparently, a lot of people are, and here's a great suggestion from Pope Francis (especially if you're dreading giving up the regular sorts of things like chocolate or alcohol). via Time
