Still Here

I’m still here – I didn’t crash and burn on last weekend’s trip to Tennessee. It went rather well, all things considered. I’ve just been extremely busy… and still rather distracted.

I’m reading Karen Armstrong’s A History of God, subtitled “The 4,000-year Quest of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.” I’m about 2/3 through it – I’ll have much more to say about it when I’m finished. For now, I’ll just say that I’m very disappointed (though hardly surprised) that I spent all those years in Baptist and Methodist churches and I heard virtually none of the steps through which modern Christian thought evolved.

I highly recommend the book, and not just to those interested in the Western Monotheistic faiths.

About John Beckett

I grew up in Tennessee with the woods right outside my back door. Wandering through them gave me a sense of connection to Nature and to a certain Forest God. I’m a Druid graduate of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, the Coordinating Officer of the Denton Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans and a former Vice President of CUUPS Continental. I’ve been writing, speaking, teaching, and leading public rituals for the past eleven years. I live in the Dallas – Fort Worth area and I earn my keep as an engineer.
