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.
