There are several reasons I hesitate to broach this subject, especially in such a public place. One of those is the fact that there are quite likely a number of non-Mennonite people reading this blog. It's not that I mind non-Mennonites reading along, they're more than welcome! I'm just afraid what I have to say won't make sense to them unless I go to exta lengths to make explanations. I guess I will write as if to a Mennonite audience, and if anyone has questions puzzling them, you are more than welcome to ask them - either in the comment section, or by emailing me personally.
Another reason that I hesitate is the fact that, frankly, I don't feel like I have this thing all figured out! I'm halfway afraid I'll get to about day 15 and not know what else to say. Or, worse, suddenly realize I've dug myself such a hole that I'll never be able to get back out! I enter this little project with lots of prayer and uncertainty. God has brought many little things into my path the past 3 months that have seemed to confirm that this is what I am to do, so I'm going to try! Just remember - I don't pretend to have all the answers. This is more about me sorting out my own beliefs than anything else!
I welcome your input. I promise to not be offended with your contributions and, when I get in over my head, there's this very wise man at my house who I'm counting on to bail me out! :)
