Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff Part 1

I went back to VA for the week after Easter. It's been an adventure. I got a lot of reading done. Thank heavens. My brain needed both the fun and academic reading.

I'm almost done with Lamb:The Gospel according to Biff.
It's one of the first books I've read in awhile where I actually laughed out loud.

I'll write more about the book later, but the book has been making me think about Jesus' humanity. We, as modern readers, have three years of Jesus' ministry documented. Even in those three years, and four gospels, there are holes.

What was his childhood like? Did Jesus know that he was the Son of God? When did he know it?
It's one of those things that almost two years into seminary, and I question Jesus' humanity/divinity more and more.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

My East Coast brain hurts. It's Good Friday, and it's snowing. That's just not right.

I saw this on one of the blogs I read, and it made me laugh. The author does make a good point, the church knows it's audience.

Unlikely Theologians

Well, I've given this a lot of thought. I am surrounded by unlikely theologians. There are many authors, songwriters, and movie directors that would say that they are NOT theologians...I disagree.

I've been reading Lamb: The Gospel according to Biff by Christopher Moore. I am soon going to read A Song to Sing, a Life to Live by Emily Saliers and Don Saliers. Dr. Don Saliers recently retired. He was a seminary professor at Emory; Emily Saliers makes up one half of the Indigo Girls (my favorite band. ever.).

However, the theologians that have been taking up a lot of mental space are the ones with fur. Yes, Dogs. Dogs have taught me a lot about theology. I know this will sound strange, but read Moltmann and think about a dog. Moltmann makes so much more sense when you think about a dog.

I have had 14 collies in my lifetime. (Well, there are 2 that my mom has now that I kinda consider mine. I haven't lived with them for long periods of time, so are they really mine?…
