Sabbath Day

July 6, 2012

I cannot set aside the profound sadness and disappointment I feel for my churches General Assembly today, but I need to record on my sabbath blog that I had a very good day dissertating. My sister took my son shopping for his birthday, designed a birthday cake for him, and then took him to the beach. This was the day I have needed for more than a year in order to cut through the writing/research stall. Chapter One is well on it’s way to a rough and ugly draft. Thank you Alane.

Perhaps pausing to pray every ten minutes for the Presbyterian Church (USA) helped the writing process?

We had a small birthday party tonight … and then the maddening evening of watching the assembly of my church muck itself up.

I am continuing to pray, with gratitude for all those who work so hard to advance the peace, justice and hope of God’s reign.

    Hooray, hooray, hooray for the good writing day and the rough and ugly chapter 1 draft!! Yes, mini-breaks do indeed help the writing process. (I resorted to computer games — prayer is more productive!) The PC(USA), the dissertation and life in general benefit from regular pauses for prayer.

    Very glad the birthday beach day was enjoyable.

    I came in late to the GA live feed so wasn’t sure what was happening last night. What was happening last night?
