Some Slam Poetry

With a hat tip to Dean Abbott of Inspired by a True Story, two offerings from teacher and slam poet Taylor Mali. The first asks us to, "Like, you know," learn to speak with conviction. Together with the second piece, "What Teachers Make" Mali's poetry has inspires me (in a positive way) to reflect on my own priorities as a Christian and as a priest (I should warn those of you with tender sensibilities, the second of the two videos uses some very graphic language that some might find offensive.)

As always, your comments are welcome.

In Christ,

+Fr Gregory
