Since I last updated this post on the Eucharist, I’ve discovered that Google likes posts that are at least 1,200 words in length. As a result I’m going through a lot of my old posts to see if I can find ways to reach that baseline number. Some of them have been quite easy as they were already over a 1,000 words. Some, like this one, will take a fair bit more work if I hope to reach the goal.…Continue readingCommon Eating – The Eucharist
This is another one of the sections that I’ve been giving a great deal of thought as to how I would like to present it. In the regular type face sections below you will see that while I put some emphasis on the stories of the Old and New Testament, there was not necessarily a lot of emphasis there originally. There are definitely a lot of changes to this post, and I think, that as I continue to develop this…Continue readingCommon Eating – Old and New Testament
This post on the meal itself for Common Eating, is probably the one that has changed the most since I wrote it. I originally thought that I wouldn’t bother with any textbook. However, I think I’m going to add a cookbook to the list. Not just any cookbook, but the More with Less cookbook. This cookbook is the greatest contribution of Mennonites to the world, well, greatest after Pioneer Farmers Sausage, and Shmaunt Fat. I also think that I will…Continue readingCommon Eating – The Meal Itself.
One of the important parts of Common Eating as a course, is finding ways for the students to work together. The marking system will definitely involve credit for the ability to work together. The only problem with this is that I have a natural aversion to anything that resembles a group project. This is in part because I am an introvert among introverts. I’m also very independent. On my two choice Enneagram test I scored an 88 as a number…Continue readingCommon Eating – 2 – Marking
Common Eating is an idea for a university or seminary type course that has been sitting in the back of my mind for several years now. Over the next several weeks I hope to go through each of those posts and update and rethink my way through them. I’ll be leaving each new post at the top of my blog for a few days. Any new material will be printed in bold. The original post and the first update can…Continue readingCommon Eating (Meals)
I wrote this post on keeping the ferial six and a half years ago. I’m reposting it with some change in my thoughts. Not that I necessarily disagree with what I wrote, but that I find my approach to some matters a little changed in the interim. One more thing I have noticed since the start of the pandemic. Eating alone on a regular basis, makes it harder to keep my focus on the amounts I eat at each meal.…Continue readingKeeping the Ferial
