StuckI think I may have given up on the Bible in 90 days.I am a good week behind myself (and I didn't start till 7th Jan, which puts me behind some of you anyway) . When last I looked, I had just finished Joshua,- and I can't imagine I'll have made any progress without actually noticing, somehow! Given the heady excitement of running the parish on my own for a month, while Wonderful Vicar spends time with the Church of South India, I don't forsee being much more regular in my reading for quite a while. Could one of you give me a good reason not to abandon ship at this point??? I don't want something that is self-imposed to become an unreasonable burden, but fully realise that my always dubious relationship with the Bible will not be helped if I give up when I've actually got a blogging community to keep me at least vaguely on track.
I will at least take The Message with me to Venice next week. Who knows, perhaps waiting for budget airline flights may turn out to be just the answer to reader's block. I'm definitely not experiencing this as a spiritual process to date, but rather an educational, "this-is-quite-interesting" sort of thing. I do know, though, that expecting the unexpected is a pretty good fundamental premise in encounters with God, so my mind is still open, I think/hope.
