Oh my word, how the time has gotten away from me. I haven’t posted here since August and pretty much neglected the site throughout 2011. Gosh, there is all kinds of things that I could discuss. Don’t know really what to say.
Nothing has changed religiously, still plugging away at coping with fate. I do have a new slogan, “United Methodist by little choice and Jewish at heart.” Yes, that pretty much sums up my religious experience at the moment. Talk about dazed and confused. A good friend of mine told me to look on the bright side, look how cultural diverse I am now. My friend made a great point. Being this way for many years now has opened up new experiences, which would not have happened in my past Christian environment. I guess if this was divinely inspired, with utmost sincerity, thank you so much God.
Ahh, as for the Mark study, that is totally on my mind for months now. I am just all over the place with thoughts on this sacred scripture. Heck, the first verse of this book sent me on an unrecoverable tail spin. I don’t even know how to get it on paper. It is impossible for me to take this text at face value. I mean, it was written thousands of years ago and seems theatrical. Not sure I can buy into some of it without close examination and historical research. There is a lot of scholarly work I can tap into, which is great.
Anyway, hopefully, I am going to get back into blogging again. It is so much more rewarding to write my thoughts down and sharing it with others. Heck, it might even be helpful.
