This note has been a long time coming, but as we approach a new year, I’m tying together some loose ends, and this is one of them.

If Easter is about anything, it’s about being set free. And if Christmas is about anything, it’s about the divine showing up unexpectedly with possibilities for new life.

This past Easter gave me the freedom to change directions, and now with Christmas, some of those in utero possibilities of the past months have been born.

So, with appreciation for all those who have read and responded to my writing here over the past couple years, I’m making it official that the Scarlet Letter Bible project is, for the time being, closed.

Many thanks to all,

Caspar

But God provides what they need to get by. This is Jesus’ remedy for the “if only” syndrome. If only I had this. If only that would happen. If [Read more…]
