Site Update and Message

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week. It was fully my intention to get a Saturday Sermon up on either Saturday or Sunday, but Saturday I got sidetracked when I was able to get my COVID booster and then came home to do a smaller home repair (attic railing was about go kaput) and just lost track of time. Sunday, I spent the day wondering where purple made noise, yes that’s supposed to sound like nonsense because unlike COVID shot #1, COVID shot #2, and the flu shot, COVID booster told me to sit on the couch and drift in and out of coherence. Still, though, worth the weird feelings. I highly encourage getting boosted (or just getting your COVID vaccine if that’s the case).

I did a religion themed podcast over on the Illuminati Social Cub with friend and In Your Earholes co-host, Oliver Rockside. We discussed the differences between the US and Canada when it comes to public-facing displays of religion. It’s Episode 37: Border Signs. It’s a fun, casual conversation about how people tend to wear their religion on their sleeves in the US while it’s a more personal thing in Canada.

Finally, I want to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. Make sure to give thank for all of those around you who have helped you and supported you through these surreal times. I, for one, am thankful for my family, my girlfriend, and all of you who have supported me in my blogging adventure. I thank you all and I will be back to writing as soon as my immune system is well-oiled, virus killing machine.

Where Am I?

This week is less a sermon and more of a status update. I’m currently deep in the heart of Exodus, slogging through law after law about slaves, violence, farm animals, eyes, teeth, and countless things that deserve the death penalty. It took some time to get through and I’m still deep in the muck right now, but hopefully I’ll have two posts next week and I’ll be able to get this train rolling again.

Here’s the thing, and it won’t surprise you, I prefer writing about narrative stories and descriptive text. When it comes to laws, and I know Classic Jason, I have plenty more chapters full of laws ahead. I’m trying to figure out how to write about them that is halfway interesting. I may just skip to the interesting and controversial ones and maybe make a passing mention of the boring ones.

I also took the week off because we are in the heart of Oktoberfest season and my girlfriend plays in German brass band. I enjoy going to the fests and partaking of the food and beer. Being where I am in the Bible and having less time to write over the weekend made this past week a non-starter. If I was in the Book of Jonah or Judges (esp. Samson and Delilah) that would be easier to write about and get my thoughts down. As it were, laws just leave something to be desired.

Anyway, that’s it. Go in peace and all that jazz. Sorry, skinofmyteeth1960, that’s partially your line.
