Interesting Days

My oh my, it’s been quite some time since I’ve posted; where does the time go?

Just in a short couple of months or so, it seems like the world has gone crazy- certainly life has changed a great deal. I hope that all of you have been safe and healthy during my absence from this blog, and as violence and mayhem spread across the land here in the USA, I hope we all remain sane and safe.

I wanted to let you all know that over these weeks, I have been working on a different writing project; different, that is, from blogging. Those who have followed this blog for a long time may recall that about 4 ½ years ago I did a series of posts about our having been created in the image of God, and that it was followed by another series of posts on nakedness as a metaphor in Scripture. At some point in that process, I then moved onto other, more conventional themes.

Yet I always knew that I would return to that study, for between those two subjects there is so very much that needs to be written about and taught, for the impact of bearing His image speaks to the very nature of life and God’s purpose for humanity.

Even so, there seems to be little that has been written on the subject over the centuries, which is a real shame. Perhaps this is the time to do something about that.

Yet in working on this project, I have come to recognize that I need to do more research and thus, I will be hitting the road at the end of the week on a research trip so that I might meet with and speak with people versed in Christian teaching, communication and writing in the hope of gaining a clearer vision of what would be not only possible but also practical as I proceed. I also hope to meet others with entirely different points of view to add to my own understanding and experience so that my finished product will be both informative and useful; maybe even life-changing for some. In any case, I’d like to produce a work that is and encouragement and a blessing for those who take the time to read it.

Of course, I’ll let you know how I fare on my trip and at some point, I will most likely post some excerpts for your review and consideration.

Finally, yes, I have been absent far too long, so I’ll begin posting daily, and I’ll try to schedule enough to keep going until I return to my desk. In the meantime, keep well and safe, and may God bless you each and every day!

    It’s good to see you back on your blog. Whenever someone is missing for awhile one wonders if it has to do with their health i.e., the cornonavirus! I am glad to hear that isn’t the case. 😊
