The first week

I’ve just updated my “about” page.  I like it.

Holy week is a special time for me.  The story of that week defines my beliefs as a follower of Jesus’s teachings.  I hesitate to say “Christian” because the word has become so over used that it is loosing its meaning.  I do attend church and regularly study the Bible.  I have faith and doubts and on some Sundays would rather be in my wood shop making sawdust rather then listening to organ music.  There are times that a good old sea shanty is more soul satisfying than “Amazing Grace.”

No thunder bolt yet.

The next few posts will be about a journey I am taking in my mind with the help of the book, “The Last Week” by Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan.  I have read a number of books by these two and am delighted that in some circles Crossan has been labeled a heretic. “The Last Week” follows the activities of Jesus during his last week as told in the Gospel of Mark.  I highly recommend that you read the book – both “The Last Week” and the Gospel of Mark.

My professional life is all about creating engineering process and I’ve decided to approach my task for the week with a defined process.

Each night I’ll read the chapter for the next day.  In the morning I shall approach my computer and write a post with my feelings about the chapter and the events I’ve attended at my church.  The only rule of writing is that I write something.  It’s a bit of an experiment.  No promises on the content.

We’ll see where it goes.  It starts here and goes there.
