It is rare that I post anything but my own art on my blog, but this is a colaborative work that went onto the planet yesterday and it seems to sum up the simplicity of life that I am presently craving. I made the mistake of overdosing in blog this morning and should have known better. Reading others convictions about the state of the church, the emergent conversation, and it's critics has left me in a funk not unlike the personal aftermath of being in a crowded room with everyone talking at once. It is weird feeling passionate about something but not having the ability to articulate it and why should I when there are smarter people than me doing so. It is sort of a pent up feeling though- like my teapot when it whistles.
I doubt that I will be creative today so maybe ironing Bryan's shirts is in order.
So I'm in bed, looking at my computer, sighing.
Eric immediately knows what I'm doing - reading people's emerging (and anti-emerging) church blogs. "I don't know why you put yourself through this," he says, shaking his head. "It just upsets you."
yeah, it does.
