1 Year Later: “…

1 Year Later: “On the 15th of May in the Jungle of Nool, in the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool. He was splashing…enjoying the jungle’s great joys when Horton the elephant heard a small noise…”

Last year on Horton hears a who day, Katy-who put forth her first “Yop” in the form of a post on WordPress. I wanted a place to talk about my practical theology, I wanted a place to think through (in my verbal-processor way) my deep and not so deep thoughts on life, the universe and everything. My topics tend to express my life as it is–covering theology, parenting, technology, fantasy, love and money. It doesn’t (yet) cover my deep need to engage more with the arts, it doesn’t discuss self-care or yoga or cute stories from my children (my parenting thoughts have been more philosophical). So there is room to grow, there is more to me than I’ve been letting myself do. But so far my 171 posts in 365 days (some of them being reblogs from other wise people) have had 2, 228 views and 92 followers. That is a post every 2 to 3 days, approx 13 views per post, and about 1 follower for every post I’ve made…

What else is to say but thank you. Thank you for journeying with me…..
Each contribution you have made–whether it was a read or a like, has helped!

About katyandtheword

Pastor Katy has enjoyed ministry at New Covenant for 7 years, where the church has solidified its community focus. Prior to that she studied both Theology and Christian Formation at Princeton Theological Seminary. She also served as an Assistant Chaplain at Trenton Psychiatric Hospital and as the Christian Educational Coordinator at Bethany Presbyterian at Bloomfield, NJ. She enjoys working within and connecting to the community, is known to laugh a lot during service, and tells as many stories as possible. Pastor Katy loves reading Science Fiction and Fantasy, theater, arts and crafts, music, playing with children and sunshine, and continues to try to be as (w)holistically Christian as possible. "Publisher after publisher turned down A Wrinkle in Time," L'Engle wrote, "because it deals overtly with the problem of evil, and it was too difficult for children, and was it a children's or an adult's book, anyhow?" The next year it won the prestigious John Newbery Medal. Tolkien states in the foreword to The Lord of the Rings that he disliked allegories and that the story was not one.[66] Instead he preferred what he termed "applicability", the freedom of the reader to interpret the work in the light of his or her own life and times.

One thought on “1 Year Later: “…

  1. Congratulations and Happy Birthday! What an accomplishment. You’ve given me some goals to work toward.
