a POST Card from John Flynn


April 21, 2014

Last weekend I was asked to speak for UU service in Long Island. I took the title of my talk, Practice Resurrection, from a line in a Wendell Berry poem. At the service, I shared the stories of two men I know from my work in Gander Hill. One man was released from prison a year ago and the other will get out in just a few weeks! (I believe both gentlemen will be speaking at a concert I’ll give in June as a benefit to raise money for New Beginnings-Next Step, our ex-offenders support program here in Wilmington.) Both men have achieved amazing transformations, and their stories illustrate the power of mercy and gratitude to change hearts and lives. Indeed through my work with these men, and others like them, I’ve come to think of mercy and gratitude as the real  “precious metals” I sing about in my song Kintsugi. Here’s a video of the song from a recent Oklahoma house concert:  

I’ll be doing Kintsugi and other songs from my new CD, Poor Man’s Diamonds, this week in Romeoville, IL, and Amherst, WI.  The new album will be for sale for the first time anywhere at these shows!  

Although the national release for the CD will not be until July, we’ll be having an “unofficial” Philly album release concert on May 10 at Musical Lairs in Villanova, PA. 

Information for all of these shows is available at

Hope to see you soon!
