Apparantly here in the country the mouse keeps falling of the wheel and the internet stops working. Hopefully I'll get this finished before it slips off again.
Here are today's Table of Contents:
Chapter 1 - Meet
A Year Acceptable
Meaning and Authenticity
Chapter 2 - Greet
The one and only... Songbird
Chapter 3 - Book Tease
Walking the Bible: A Journey by Land Through the Five Books of Moses
Servant's Quarters: This blog is about my thoughts - I'm a minister in a small New Jersey church, mom to four sons, wife to a great husband, and trying to be an agent of the kingdom of God. Head on over and see if you can get Susan Gillespie to post again... then again she does have 4 sons.
A Year Acceptable : In the Judeo-Christian tradition of the Sabbath and Jubilee years and Jesus' first public proclamation, I am attempting to live 2007 as a year acceptable to self, others, and God. Here is more about the author, "Born in a small midwestern town, I have fondness for forests and lakes but have recently taken to the intellectual and spiritual delights of Boston and England. I work for a church-related institution in a mid-size, mid-atlantic city which is a pleasant-enough-non-place."
A Year Acceptable could also use a gentle nudge to return to the world de blog. Pentecost and fame take up her late May/early June musings.
Meaning and Authenticity: Blogging ministry, psychology, politics and other things that count in Katherine's world. Ministry, pastoral counseling, spiritual direction. Written by Katherine E. who shares these words about herself, "Second career minister. Married late in life. Three great stepchildren. Becoming authentic, learning to love. Ph.D. in pastoral counseling and theology. A good life."
Join Katherine for a thoughtful Susan Howatch quote and a powerful post about Iraq.

NEXT WEEK: REVGALBOOKPALS WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN!!! (and Mesopotamians and other people of God)
Join in the conversation next week as we discuss such riveting questions such as...
Would Jesus create a video montage of his life using MTV editing and the Lion King soundtrack?
When 'Walking the Bible' does it still count if you are wearing hiking boots or does it have to be sandals?
And of course: Why did God have to choose such an ass-hot place to be the Holy land?
Thanks. You've been great. Please don't forget to tip your waiter.
