Blogging the Spirit: Adventures in Spirituality
Many bloggers easily incorporate books on religion and spirituality or other creative arts into their regular blogging fare. But I have been hesitant.
In a previous post, I discussed the desire to expand my mostly classic literature blog to reflect the variety of books I actually read. A brief exchange in the comments regarding religion and spirituality has prompted me to reach out and create an informal event occurring on the last Sunday of the month.
Now that I know I am not alone, I would love to share and discuss; to know what you are reading, hearing and looking at that inspires you!
I am proposing that we connect on the last Sunday of the month with any kind of post that speaks, grounds, connects or inspires us.
Books, Art, Photography, Music, Poetry, Liturgy, Creativity
Some suggestions: a book review, a personal post on a particular practice, share a photo or piece of art. Is there a word or phrase or passage from your liturgy or spiritual books that you find beautiful? Does a particular melody or a song connect you to God every time you hear it?
Share what God/The Gods/Spirit/The Big Cheese is for you. If you don’t believe in God or religion and but you are inspired by life share, too.
Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Pagans, Heathens, Druids, Wiccans, Tree-Huggers, Mother Nature Lovers, Those-Inspired-by-Life. Everyone is welcome!
We can find each other with the hashtag #BloggingTheSpirit to use on Twitter and Instagram and other social media. I will also put up a connecting post on my blog at 12am (PDT) on the last Sunday of the month where you can use the comment section to share the url to your post.
Please share this post on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, wherever you have social media, if you or someone you know is interested.
On the last Sunday of the month:
~post to your blog or wherever you have social media and use the hashtag #BloggingTheSpirit on Twitter or Instagram
~Come here for the ‘connecting post’ which will be my only post on that day and share the url to your offering in the comments
~click on various urls that interest you and make connections
