This Sunday, we begin a new year on the Christian calendar as we celebrate the first Sunday in Advent. Looking at this as a “beginning” has caused me to think about the future of Oboedire.
When I began this blog, I was a full-time professor in seminary. Now, I am a year into retirement. The difference in status creates a difference in focus. I believe Oboedire needs to more-closely reflect my current reality. So, I am in a period to discern what that means in terms of blogging.
In December, it means two things….
(1) I will begin tomorrow a new lectionary series, this time based on the Old Testament lessons. To differentiate it from the completed three-year series of meditations on Gospel readings, I will call the new series “Ancient Wisdom.” It will come out each Saturday. The previous series is archived, and you can access it as you like by clicking onto the “Holy Gospel” category on the Home Page.
(2) We will complete our exploration of Henri Nouwen’s book, ‘Spiritual Formation.’ This, as you know, is posted each Monday under the “Listenings” category. I want to finish this review before moving on to something else.
Other posts will provide reflections on a variety of themes, with no particular cycle or day assigned to them.
Thanks again for being on the journey. Continue to help build the community by thinking of folks you believe would benefit from these kinds of posts, and inviting them to subscribe.
