Lately I have been in a writing slump. I don’t know if you are supposed to admit that on a blog that you want people to visit and read, but there it is. I have fought it off for awhile, but over the past few weeks it has become quite obvious as can be seen in the posting frequency. It is very strange to have absolutely no desire to do something that at one time provided you such enjoyment. Blogging and writing were a passion for me, and I couldn’t wait to sit down and write. I still enjoy writing and blogging, but I just seem to go blank and lack the energy to go through with the posts when I get started.
Over the past month, I have been teaching a class on the Pentateuch. It has been exciting, challenging, and refreshing all at the same time. I took classes on the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament) for my master’s degree, but find that I am learning (re-learning?) a lot of stuff I either didn’t notice or didn’t catch the first time through.
So I thought maybe my blogging and my class could come together. I could use the passion from one to reignite the passion in the other. So I am going to share some stuff that I am learning as I prepare for the class, write the sessions, study God’s Word, and reflect on what God is teaching me as I teach the class.
