Blogito Ergo Sum, "Only get people to read if you want to lose all control" edition.
I operate with deeply Protestant sensibilities. I read, work with, and respond to scripture anticipating that it will challenge, even upend, the paradigms that I bring with me to the task. As banal as that might sound (the idea that a 2000 year old book is free to disrupt what we've come to ...
