Emerging, imploding and recovering

Ok, this is primarily for my benefit but also so that my friends out there know I’m still alive…sort of.

I have my finale to my knowledge and experience series in my drafts - -it will be along shortly. It’s THAT GOOD *sarcasm*

I have TONS of thoughts from the gathering - working titles include:

*emergent incarnates hope - - I’m not kidding
*art, incarnation and artifact
*dangerous dreams
*yes you can get altitude sickness even if you live in the mountains
*sprouted bagels, knit caps and communities called seven
*yoga on a tennis court at a Baptist retreat center - - I’m not kidding
*how I lost at pac man but conquered BIG BIBLE HILL (insert scary echo)
*Tony Jones is a real person…I think
*Emergent types make really cute babies

ok…so hopefully that piques your interest and served to remind me to get writing.

I’m feeling better. At least I don’t have the chills and aches and electric skin (have you ever had this? where your skin feels electrified? man, it’s freaky) - just the head cold. Sadly for me, deadlines do not wait for sick people so after 14 hours of sleep from Sat-Sunday I had to get to work on the lit magazine I design….yeah, that’s been REAL FUN *sarcasm*.

Yesterday Shayel started back up with school - she was SUPER excited, I was too - but not looking forward to dragging my sick self outside for a 2 mile walk and then again at 3 for another 2 mile walk…yeah, not so fun.

I have a “to do” list that is frighteningly long and that doesn’t even begin to include everything we need to do for Revolution and the Undercroft.

And my final comment about my life right now - I need to buy groceries.

the end.

    Hey Mak, I can’t wait to read about the gathering you went to. I have been reading up on the Emergent Church and all that jazz. I just ordered Brian McLaren’s the Secret Message of Jesus.

    I just posted an article on my blog about divorice from Christianity Today that I found interesting. I could not tell if it would fit along with post modern emergent thought processes, but I’m curious to see what you think about it.

    later sister!

    I didn’t know you were sick, and yes, I know the skin experience you describe. How you ever managed to walk that much I do not know, bless your heart.

    Looking forward to your coming post!!!
