Anytime I tell someone my blog address they look at me like I'm crazy. As if I came up with the most obscure, hardest-to-remember web address I could think of. Well, remember I didn't exactly have time to consult a marketing firm when I started this. Plus, I really didn't anticipate the interest that there has been in it (at least interest outside my current circles).
(And as just an aside here... I do so appreciate all you who have been reading this "experiment" of mine. And for your kind, affirming words. Although I have generally not taken the time to answer your comments on my posts, please know that I have read every one... more than once. They, along with your in-person and on-the-phone comments have been very encouraging to me).
All this said, I hereby dub this blog experiment a success and will continue to use it as my online journal of thoughts and essays.
And just so you know I'm not a complete nut case (just a partial one)..... the term "culture and sensitivity" comes from the medical practice of sending a specimen to the lab to culture it for microorganisms and to run tests on the culture to see which antibiotics those microbes are sensitive to. Not all staphylococcus bacteria, for example, are predictably sensitive to methicillin-type antibiotics. Hence the term MRSA: methicillin-resistant staph aureus. Based on sensitivity testing, therefore, we choose treatments that will bring the cure we desire.
This journal is my exercise in sensitivity... in paying attention to culture and to life and to events. Not to make more out of them than there really is, but at least to notice them and be receptive to what God could teach me through them.
Like Jeremiah, a prophet......
