Luke – Round Two

September 12, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Ok, where were we? In Luke that is. It has been a while so perhaps you have forgotten. At the front-end of the summer, I had the brilliant idea of blogging through Luke’s gospel. It was going to be great. Our church was preaching through Luke, and I was going to work out my thoughts in rough sketch here on the blog as the rest of the church was following along on Sundays. Everything was a “go.”

Then summer happened. And when summer hit, all things normal, routine, and consistent were thrown out the window. I knew that it was going to be a challenge staying on top of things around here, but I didn’t foresee everything coming to a screeching halt.

Now three months later, I’m back. Actually, my body has been back for well over a month, but it has taken my mind and spirit that long to catch up with my body. I didn’t feel like the rest of me had really “returned” until right around Labor Day weekend.

So it hasn’t been until the last couple weeks that I have returned to a normal routine. I’m of the opinion that “routine” is often unfairly criticized for being mundane and boring. While I dislike just going through the motions or getting into a rut as much as the next person, there is a certain stability in settling into a routine that can be life-giving. This is true for the person finding their way back into their rhythm, as well as everyone who depends on that person in some way.

All of this is a long way of saying, I’m coming back around to the Luke blogging plan. I know that this blog-o-project is sort of moot now. We started a new teaching series at church yesterday, and so the church is officially done with Luke. But I’m not. The entire time we were going through it, most everyone I know felt like it was rushed. None of us had the chance to really dig in like we would have liked. And so, I will be journeying with Luke a little longer still.

      What’s that saying about great minds?
      Anyway, great plan! More Luke. More women. What’s not to like?
      Fairly sure I’m not going to be much help to you, but what I see I’m happy to share. Just don’t quote me. I don’t want those women to know where you’re kooky ideas come from.
