These are some of my favorite and/or most noteworthy tweets, documentaries and books of September:
Movies & Documentaries
Entertaining Angels — Starring Moira Kelly and Martin Sheen and Heather Graham — tells the inspiring story of Catholic Worker co-founder Dorothy Day.
Mudbound — This Netflix film portrays the stark reality of racism in the post-World War II South. Worth watching. Adult content.
“She Had Some Horses” — A 48-minute documentary on the connection between horses and humans and the loss of the iconic symbol of the American West — wild mustangs. The title comes from a Joy Harjo poem and book by the same name. More on that next month!
Glory Happening: Finding the Divine in Everyday Places by Kaitlin B. Curtice — Ms. Curtice is one of my favorite people on Twitter. Her book exhorts us to notice the sacred in all that we do.
Called to Community: The Life Jesus Wants for His People edited by Charles E. Moore — A collection of light from Foster, Lewis, Kierkegaard, Merton, Chittister, Bonhoeffer and more!
Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teaching of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer — This book isn’t a bestseller for nothing. A treasure trove of wisdom that helps us re-discover our green “companions” as more than something to eat.

Soul Talk, Song Language: Conversations with Joy Harjo interviewed by Tanaya Winder — Dialogue with one of the foremost poet-artists alive today.
