I’ve been trying to get him to start his own blog for some time.
I know it’s true that my very good friend and colleague Jim Somerville is far too busy appearing on CNN and editing his sermons for publication to spend his time blogging, but, frankly, I’d like to have more opportunities to read what he thinks.
And I think the rest of the world might like that opportunity, too.
(Is the peer pressure working yet, Jim?)
So, while I continue my campaign to get him to start a blog of his own, I think I’ll try to ease him in by a few guest appearances right here on my blog.
Jim is well known for his interesting and thought-provoking observations of the lectionary texts but not AS well known for his considerable artistic skills, so today I share (with his permission, of course) a photo taken with his new digital camera. And here’s an official invitation to share his thoughts right here every once in awhile. Until he gives in, of course, and gets his own blog . . . . Thanks for sharing, Jim.
