And so I am now somewhere over the rainbow and involved in a lectionary study group which after day 1 has been such a blessing. I am not an academic and I don't know many of the others here and yet I have felt quite welcome.
When you are presenting academic/exegetical/homiletical papers surrounded by folks who have opened their Greek and Hebrew texts FAR more recently than you AND who won awards in seminary at graduation, rather than on the flag football field, it can be quite intimidating. But these folks seem to be my kind of people and so far I am hanging in there.
Of course, I don't present until Thursday and Friday and there is something beautiful to be said about that.
Listing Straight is here as is Reverend Mother and ShyChiRev. It's good. And I am once again grateful to the BE because if THIS had been my first post-Easter stop, it would NOT have been good for anybody.
