There is of course the stuff of a vicar’s life and work. Some of that applies to all of us: growing older, significant birthdays and holidays. This being November, there was a particular focus on Remembrance in this World War I centenary year, as well as a nod to the coming season. Also in the vicar’s line of work, I’ve shared my blogging so far through the Old Testament book of Jeremiah (the weeping prophet) 7 chapters to date. But Jeremiah is a long book, so this journey will continue through December and well into the New Year. Staying with the biblical theme, this month saw the creation of a new occasional biblical quote feature for ‘Words from the Word’.
The book lover in me prompted quite a few different posts this month. In particular, there was the Nonfiction November challenge which encouraged posts summarising my year in nonfiction, the nonfiction category I’d love to become an expert in, and diversity in nonfiction. An inevitable outcome of this wonderful challenge was an even longer TBR nonfiction list.
But it’s not all been about books – sharing other passions and concerns via the blog is, for me, an important part of journalling life’s journey – as is sharing events of importance to others in the global blogging community. And with a daily blogging challenge like NaBloPoMo underway, there have also been a few posts that connect with that experience.
So, overall, it’s been a busy and varied blogging month here at More thoughts, Vicar. And how about you? What thoughts have you most enjoyed sharing this month?
