Porn & Poetry

With the start of 2014, there are a million cliches like New Year, New You! pushing to get you into the gym, into those jeans, into that car, into… whatever. 

Well, I don't know if you feel new or if you feel weathered, if you feel encouraged or if you feel like you're at the end of your rope. But I do want to introduce you to something new - something that I think might be beneficial no matter where you are at with your resolutions.

Years ago, a friend asked me if I had any dreams. I had a lot of them. I wanted to write. I wanted to be married. I wanted to tour. I also wanted to see the Lord redeem my years of pornography addiction. I wanted to see him use my story of imprisonment and the breaking of those chains to set others free. 

I want to introduce you to Porn & Poetry, the newest creative initiative from XXXChurch.com. Here's the deal: the first words spoken from human lips were poetry. "At last! Bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh!" Seeing as how spoken word is the new black, I thought, why not ask XXXChurch if they'd be willing to introduce a couple wordsmiths of their own to explore returning to the purity of that first song? This event is a highly testimonial performance / discussion from a couple young poets that have felt the weight of addiction, and the joy of freedom.

I hope you'll check it out. XXXChurch.com has made it as accessible as possible for whatever venue or circumstance you find yourself in. To find out more about it, including how and who you need to get in touch with to bring Porn & Poetry to your town, check out levithepoet.net/porn

Thanks for giving me / us the opportunity to serve you guys. It is an honor.
