Crossroads are coming!
It’s several months now since I started sharing Sunday reflections on my blog. Most of you are already regular readers. And I appreciate your comments and suggestions.
A number of you have even subscribed to singlehumanity.com which enables you to receive the link directly in your email box whenever there’s a new post. For those who still want to subscribe, it’s simple and free: give your name and your email address –and you are done.
Others still have become members of the Facebook group: Your Word is my Lamp, which is a platform for sharing reflections for our growth both in humanity and in faith.
Something new: Crossroads
Besides Sunday reflection, I would like to propose to you another series of reflections which I collectively call: Crossroads. What is it?
These are reflections based on sentences, phrases or even words of the Bible that sparked something in me. How did that come about?
Well, it’s a long story of enthusiasm, decision, action, dropping and picking up again.
I had always wanted to read the Bible in a continuous manner, from Genesis to Revelations. I actually made several attempts that led nowhere. Nevertheless, the desire remained alive in me. But then I realised that perhaps it wasn’t enough to have just the desire, a strong motivation is necessary. And I got one.
Since I like pen and paper I said to myself maybe the Bible can be a good source of ideas which I can use in my writings. It’s handy to have some reserve of ideas, useful especially when you are attacked by the disease that writers know well. That’s how I found myself back on the job sure to go through till the end, though sustained by a utilitarian motive.
I had underestimated the all thing, thinking I would glean just a few ideas here and there to be conserved in a small note book. Oh boy! In fact, I was in for an adventure. It was a positive surprise, though.
Today, I’m proud to have skimmed through the Bible, and thereby, fulfil my long-cherished desire and also satisfy the little writer in me.
The reflections are personal inspirations. No study. No consulting commentaries. I receive the word of the Bible as it comes and I give my personal response in form of a reflection based on my feeling, thinking or experiences. That’s why I talk about Crossroads: the reflections are a meeting point between the word of the Bible and me.
I hope to post, besides Sunday reflection, one item per week of the Crossroads series. So check it out on my blog: singlehumanity.com. Feel free to subscribe. You can also join the Facebook group: Your Word is my Lamp.
See you at Crossroads,
Evans K. Chama
