When I started blogging again, I was worried about pigeon holing myself into one specific topic or set of issues. I think I originally got away from it because although theology and biblical life application are among my greatest interests, they don't encompass the scope of my day to day life, or the zillion other things I'm interested in.
I think as young Christians, we inadvertently accept a lot of unnecessary guilt about indulging in the things of this world. Of course, we need to keep our hearts and minds focused toward the things that are eternal, but I also believe God created us to love the world we are living in, and to find even Christian community in activities and events that are accessible and attractive.
So that said, my mom, middle sister, and I recently started an overwhelmingly beautiful study by She Reads Truth on the book of Proverbs. We are walking through the book of wisdom over the course of a month and approaching our study topically instead of chronologically, which is a new approach for all three of use and wholly enlightening. We come together each week to be a little wise, and a little broken, and a little curious - completely vulnerable and accountable to one another.
Then, we plop right down on our couch and watch the Bachelorette. Is the show stupid? Yep. Do we have nicknames for every single person and talk about their odds all week? Absolutely.
We are daughters of the King AND we are women who like reality tv. The heavenly and the worldly live in each and everyone of us.
So let's abide in Christ, and abide in each other and our world in an authentic way. Let's leave the guilt; and let's be holy and fun.
