Bits & Pieces

I have a new article up on the Bloom! blog – perhaps you can relate?

“I’m such a talker. 

I can talk about anything, write about anything, and read about anything.  Sometimes, I can even make it sound like I know what I’m talking about.  But sometimes, I hide behind my words.  I’m so busy reading, writing, and talking about something that I’m not actually living it.

And I find that I’m often approaching God this way.  I want to learn all about Him, I want to soak up the rich nuggets of wisdom from others, I want to share what I’m learning.  I read good, classic Christian books, subscribe to the blogs of people I admire and respect, and sometimes parrot these lessons and thoughts about God back out in my writing and conversations.

And none of this is bad, of course.  But all I’m doing is running in a circle around God.  I learn all about others’ views of God, I talk about my own, and I just keep running, running, running.”

In other news, bits and pieces of my last few days include

 – hearing Dean Brady speak at Navs on being a Christian in an intellectual, academic (and hostile!) world.  It was so good.

 – going out to Eatin’ Park afterwards with some friends and ordering breakfast at 12:30 a.m.

 – getting all excited for the Ohio State White-Out game.  (which we painfully lost)

 – beginning a week of dance rehearsals for the performance next Sunday

 – having a lot of writing to do and wishing I could avoid it

 – seeing the daycare kids trotting around campus, which always makes me smile

 – counting down until Thanksgiving break

 – finally realizing how helpful calenders/planners are

What have you been up to?
