Scott, being the computer geek that he is has gotten me interested in thinking about fun ways to use technology as part of your ministry...to kind of create a dialogue. Even though I don't really anticipate anyone reading this for a while, if ever, I thought it would be a good habit to get into.
If someone is reading this, I suppose that I should tell you what I plan to write about. At least for now, I thought that I would use this as a sort of devotional reflection, anticipating the coming lectionary and reflecting on the past week's. The idea is that this allows anyone who might be reading this to respond and engage in dialogue regarding the lectionary.
The other subject on which I plan to focus is cooking. Its one of my favorite things. I really believe that it is not only important because physical health is important, and because the US is suffering from an obesity epidemic, but because food connects and unites people. I like to say that sometimes it seems as though when one reads the Bible, all anyone is ever doing is eating...this is because of the spiritual power of food. We all know that food can sustain us physically, but it can also sustain us spiritually and emotionally as well. I also love to cook. I like to try new things: recipes and ingredients, and I love to talk about food.
