Food For Thought
1. My relationship with the Bible? It has been difficult, I often have gotten frustrated while reading various passages. I have largely read it piecemeal, but am looking forward to reading with new eyes gained from this course. I read somewhere the idea of separating the God OF the Bible from the God IN the Bible and this has helped me a lot.
2. The word “beneficial” is throwing me off when I try to think of beneficial practices I have been inducted into. If I change it to “not beneficial” I can come up with a huge list! I am thinking that following this thought of mimetic desire to conflict to scapegoat to release via the atonement, Father James will lead us to the idea of opening ourselves to being induced to new habits in relation with God. With this, I am sure that an act of communication from God would have a massive impact on my life.
