Why Pensées II?

Many people between the ages of thirty and sixty — whatever their stature in the community and whatever their personal achievements — undergo what can truly be called a second journey ~ Brennan Manning

This is me.

The second journey begins when we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the morning program ~ Brennan Manning

 

I started Pensées when the word “blogging” was barely known. I was part of a very eccentric, off-beat crowd. I started it because I had just been traumatized by the oppressive shaming and shunning of fundamentalist groupthink and I had nobody to talk to. So I talked to cyberspace. In the tiny and shrinking world of Christian fundamentalism I got quite an audience. It seems like more people were feeling what I felt than I realized. And so my blogging took on the tone of fighting against fighting fundamentalists. It was good and necessary, but it was the “morning program.”

I’m passed that now. I’ve taken down most of what I’ve written, but I have left some here in the archives for memory’s sake. Pensées II is the afternoon agenda. More diverse and hopefully more mature. But it didn’t seem right to detach totally from my past. I am who I am: the good, bad, and ugly. So, instead of starting a new blog, I’m just adding the roman numeral II, spiffing it up a tad, and reviving Pensées.

Enjoy.
