Well that was a grueling Lent! Between the work at the church, research design at UCLA and my blog focus on Neighbors and Wisemen ... that was an interesting two months.
I also had the odd occasion to do some cleaning up behind the scenes on this blog. It turns out that I have a bunch of new conversation partners I didn’t even know about. Subscriptions are not only up but are dispersed all over the globe. I a really excited about this and it has given me some new inspiration to try something different.
I decided last week that I am going to use this platform for my conversation pieces that are not full-fledged theological reflections like I post over at HomeBrewed. I have so many things that I would love to throw out and hear back from people on – so I will start peppering them in here along with the big substantial posts.
I want to thank everyone for their support and encouragement! Occasionally I attempt to read the comment section on other blogs and am horrified and how contentious and mean-spirited they are. I rarely experience that here or at HBC.
What that has done in me … it has inspired me to throw out more ideas and invite more conversation.
Looking forward to this! -Bo

I’m looking forward to this, too, Bo. I like how your brain works, and I’m definitely interested in hearing more about what lies under that next level of wonderings.
A series of events/experiences over lent (your book group included) have inspired me to speak a little more boldly about some of the things rolling around in my head, too. Should be fun.
Of course, I’m also balancing that with the fact that I’m about to start blaming you for my current path that seems to be careening toward humanism, since I still have no flipping clue what a “real god who does real things” can do…but that’s just a minor theological detour…no big deal. 🙂

Right. I do owe you something on that subject. or a phone call. But YES. You make a solid point. -Bo

No worries. I’ve been pretty buried here anyway. But next week is shockingly light. If you’ve got some time, let me know and give me a call. I’d love to chat.
