From 2006 to 2014 A Simple Desire provided commentary to the daily scripture passages of A Sip of Scripture found on Third Way Cafe, a website created by MennoMedia. Will Fitzgerald started the blog late in February 2006. After the first year he was joined by several other contributors. Over time however the primary task of writing came to rest on two people, Will and myself. And then . . . there was just me.
During 2014 I came to the realization that it was time for a change. Prayerfully I sought to discern what that change should be. I wanted a biblical foundation to work from, one that had both tradition and the potential for new insight. And so it was that I decided starting January 2015 to comment on the Revised Common Lectionary. However the lectionary cycle actually coincides with the liturgical church year, and that starts with Advent. So at the beginning of Advent 2014 I started commenting on the lectionary scripture passages in addition to daily scripture passages from Third Way Cafe. And as of January 2015 I wrote solely on the Revised Common Lectionary.
I have been writing on religious and spiritual themes for close to 20 years now. And I have not stopped yet. Here you will find then a mix of old and new postings. No longer daily, but often enough I hope to keep you thinking and pondering. You are welcome to comment as you feel lead, or just sit back and read my writings. Blessings!
