End of the Semester and Blog thinking

I'm sure you have noticed that I'm blogging less often this past couple of weeks. Well, I am up to my neck (eyeballs?) in schoolwork, have varied life happenings, and, generally, I simply have less time to blog. So I'll be blogging a lot less over the next month. Summer is coming, though, and I am very much looking forward to a summer off, some travel across the country, and time to relax, and integrate all of the intense happenings over the past 18 months.

And what good is blogging?

Ages ago in  "blog time" (that's about a month) Beth wrote a blog entry, called "Blogging as Professional Development." Not too long later, when I was talking with Cindy about my upcoming work next year as an intern at Fairfax Community Church, and expressing the (at this point, mild) stress of thinking about writing sermons, she said I had no

Search Terms

One of the things I like to do is collect the search terms that people use to find my blog. Sometimes they are not at all surprising (like people who are searching for me, or they might know that my blog name is 'pearlbear' and they are searching for that. Other things are much more surprising.

Identity Blogging

I think, by now, if you are someone who is reading this blog regularly,  you've probably figured out that I am both an African-American, and a lesbian. If you are relatively new to this blog, you might not yet have figured out the gay part (since there is a picture of me on the side, the African-American part is pretty obvious.) Of course, if you are a friend or family member of mine, you've known this all along.

Jewish Mysticism, and bloggy miscellany

I'm taking this great class, called "Introduction to Jewish Mysticism" which is fabulous. I've been posting reflections that come from the readings and discussions of that class on my ministry blog. The latest reflection is about the ten sefirot, or emanations of God, from the Kabbalah.

The virtual meets the real (or is it the real meets the virtual)

Two "events" (I use the term lightly) occured in that world of ones and zeros this week that are worth a mention. I bet that most of you won't care a whole lot one way or the other about either of these, but they are both really interesting object lessons in how the digital world and the real live flesh and blood world interact in very interesting ways.

Guest Bloggers

I have some brilliant friends who will likely never blog (or at least aren't now.) So I thought it might be a good idea for me to provide them with a bit of an audience for their great stuff. So I'm going to blog for them. That is, they will email me their text, and I will post it for them, under their names. Expect the first of these guest bloggers soon, who will give us really good insight into the new issues around Palestine and Israel.

If you are one of my friends (old or new) who would like to guest blog, drop me an email.
