“They say writing is just pushing a feather, but I notice that they hang swords on their hips and feathers in high honor on their hats. Writing occupies not just the fist or the foot while the rest of the body can be singing or jesting, but the whole man.”
These words from Martin Luther are a goad, spurring me on towards the discipline of writing. Hopefully, this blog will be a means to keep me writing as I press on through pastoring, studying, and teaching, in addition to loving my wife and baby girl. Be prepared, though: singing or jesting may very well show up more often than writing.
I’m CJ Bowen, Pastor of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis, Maryland, and this is where I push my feather.
