MomPriest over at RevGalBlogPals posits the following for this week's Friday five....
For this Friday Five let's ponder the various ways we work out (or not), physically, spiritually, and/or psychologically.
1. Do you work out physically, spiritually, or psychologically? (I'll let you define what that might mean to you)
I do not work out physically -- I'm an Immagunna who never does. Spiritually/psychologically? Daily devotions and weekly sermons put me in contact with the Word which I probe and which probes me in return. I'm in my first call as a pastor, so all the things I have to deal with in the congregation system require me to examine my reactions and motivations and turn them over to God (usually multiple times because I keep taking them back) so, yeah, i think I'm getting a work out here.
2. Are you more inclined to join a gym, or a book club?
Book Club. Definitely. Now that I'm out of seminary I can read for my own pleasure!
3. Are you more inclined to read self-help books like Gail Sheehy's "Passages" or spiritual books like Richard Rohr or Theresa of Avila? And if so, what is your favorite?
Spiritual books. I just re-read Yearning by Craig Barnes (which helps keep all this "not quite good enough" in perspective) and read the Relational WORD.
4. Are you a loyal fan of a sports team? Or do you join the bandwagon when the local team is winning? And, if so, which one?
Gators. 'nuff said. Been a fan since I was in a onesie, back when they could scarcely get a win in a game, much less a season!
5. Or do you lean more toward having a favorite theologian/Spiritual writer or self help author and if so, who? And, why.
I have not settled on a favorite, still reading many.
Bonus: What was the last play-off series you watched and did your team win?
NCAA football and, uh, that would be a no.
