Sabbath studies

It’s almost May! I know this because my to-do list for today is full of items I meant to do this month (get a pedicure, visit the animal shelter, watch a documentary.)

I usually love the clean slate offered by a new month, but I’m intimidated by how little I know about what I’ll be working on in May. My March and April were full of pre-arranged projects (i.e., the Sabbath series you’ll see below.)

What’s next for me on the faith beat? Another exploration of faith-based environmental efforts? A piece about turning to pastors for advice? A first-person reflection on turning 26? (Just kidding – but my birthday is coming up soon!) I, for one, can’t wait to find out.
