I don’t claim that words are the gospel. But the gospel is framed in words, about the Word through whom all things were made and without whom was nothing made that was made. And this place where words meet Word and we find them running parallel: this is what makes me excited; this fills me with wonder.
Words are important. Not just the sacred words, the gospel words, but words in general are precious and powerful things.
This month, I’m joining many other bloggers and taking a challenge to write every day for thirty-one days on one topic. When I began to consider taking the challenge, I asked myself what topic I could write. And I almost immediately answered myself, “Word-Wonder.” I’ve written at and all around about this topic often — as you know if you read here regularly — and I am excited, and frightened, to work at it consistently.
I seem to be joining in later than most — I’ve learned that other bloggers have been planning their “31 Days” for months now. I’ve been planning for a week, but I have an outline, anyway, for the month: this first week’s general topic is “Words,” week two will focus on “Sentences,” week 3 on “Stories,” week 4 on “Songs,” and, for now, I’m calling the last few days “Wonder.” I don’t yet know exactly what I will write every day, but I hope you’ll join me on the journey to find out.
I’ll be posting links to all the posts in this series below, so you can come here to find them, read them, and respond, if you wish.
Thank you for reading!
