I got my very own copy of The Green Bible for Christmas (Thank you Kim!). It’s going to be an invaluable resource for this blog, particularly blogging through the Bible and thinking about how Christians have related to food/creation throughout history. An entire article is nothing but quotes about creation through Christian history. I’m very excited about using this Bible for my own devotional life as well as studying the Bible.
It features essays from the likes of N.T. Wright, Brian Mclaren, Pope John Paul II, Barbara Brown Taylor, a foreword by Desmond Tutu and it starts off with a poem from Wendell Berry (after a word from St. Francis of course). Words in the text that relate to creation are printed in green to highlight them. I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on this edition of the bestselling book in history and it looks like it delivers on its promises.
Lucas, I look forward to future posts as you work through this specific text of the Text. By the way, don’t think I’ve told you, but because of WWJE and MyFourWalls, I have begun to realize many ugly habits I have….I am now seriously working on recycling everything that I can, eating at home, and not wasting so much food. (You know, those left-overs and “eyes out-eating my stomach”). And, I decided to raid my parents’ freezer while I was home. (They have three….) I figured, they would end up throwing a lot of it away and its free….win/win! Thanks for calling my attention to all of this!
i’m glad you’ve gotten something out of my blogging. like everything else, it’s a journey. we’re all just trying to move a little closer to the kingdom. keep the comments coming.
Word to you, my friend. I am always interested in what you have to say and am glad I could support your blog.
Glad we were able to see ya’ll too.
