This blog was started primarily as a place I could post sermons and link them to our church’s website. My previous attempts at maintaining a blog have not been successful, mostly because I can’t think of anything to write that wouldn’t immediately reveal my own (probably pathetic) need for some sort of therapy, or be an incriminating negative rant of some sort. I also don’t want to wax prolific and gush about how great something is…and writing that isn’t any of that stuff seems to require a lot more effort! So, for now, I’ll just post the occasional sermon.
Oh, about “Number Four of Four” – I confess to being a fan of “Star Trek” in all its incarnations, and “Four of Four” is a tip of the hat to Seven of Nine,a human character who was a former Borg drone. I’m the fourth of four siblings – now three siblings, since the death of my brother, Don, Number Three of Four – but he had a huge influence on me during his life, so I find it fitting that he should continue to have a huge influence on me in his death as well. Technically, I suppose I should call this blog “Number Four of Three,” and while that’s pretty indicative of my often rattled and ditzy state of being, I’m still Four of Four. I think the barrier between life and death isn’t as final as it seems.
