I forgot that I might see
So many beautiful things
I forgot that I might need
To find out what life could bring
-Andain, “Beautiful Things”
A new-ish platform for BCOC, this blog, is coming back to life. Resuscitated.
We’ve shared Lenten devotions here in the past, sermons, other articles. Yet, things have been quiet here for a while, but there’s too much to say, and so we’re gonna start saying it. Too much to share. Too much good out there to let it go unrecognized. Too many negatives that deserve a positive counter-move. And too many wonderings to leave them un-wondered. So starting now, Taylor Bell and I want to share our ideas and reflections from living and faith-ing here on this corner alongside you.
Sometimes what is offered in worship inspires us and we want to say more about it. This will give us a place to do that. When one of us prepares something to say or pray, often there is much more behind the scenes than what was appropriate to share in that moment of worship, so it goes unsaid and un-explored. We wonder if it would mean more to you – like it does to us – if you knew more about the scenic view– the interview, article or chapter that fed our thinking that week; the inner argument over why or how a particular thing was chosen to be shared out loud. We want to add the narration to the Sunday/Wednesday dialogue if it holds meaning worth sharing.
In addition to wonderings and theologizing, we promise to share reviews of books and resources we find relevant to our life with you, to justice and peace, to faith and living in community. What we offer up is for the sake of our faith community. It is our hope that what we write will lift your heart, light up your passions, and enrich our fellowship somehow.
