The Ezekiel Project
Well, dear reader, I have a project. That's not so surprising, now is it? I do love me a good project. I always have great intentions and start well. Finishing well is a bit harder for me. Especially since I think I may have bitten off more than I was prepared to chew.
An author acquaintance of mine (Lee Warren, you can find him by clicking here) had a great suggestion in his newsletter for digging deeper. He mentioned that he was writing out Martin Luther's 95 Thesis as a way to slow down and think about his faith. What a great idea.
I am reading Ezekiel in my personal Bible study time. Yowza. What an interesting, difficult book. It's quite overwhelming. And downright heartbreaking. I won't spoil it for you, but let's just say, it's quite heavy. The day I read Lee's newsletter, I decided that I would write out the book of Ezekiel. Seemed like a great idea to help me wrap my brain around the images given.
Good gracious, I think I should have started with an easier, perhaps shorter, book. It's slow going, I must admit, but then, that's the point. At any rate, I am finding it helpful. Though, I readily admit to looking up other artist's interpretations of the images. It's not cheating, right?
I am wondering, dear reader, what are you doing to slow down and dig deeper today?
