Beginning In the Beginning

Artists Mel and Miriam Alexenberg celebrated their 52nd year of marriage by collaborating on the "Torah Tweets" blogart project. During each of the 52 weeks of their 52nd year, they posted six photographs reflecting their life together with a tweet text that relates the weekly Torah reading to their lives.

Unlike the biblical narrative that begins “In the Beginning,” a blog begins at the end. A blog displays its narrative in reverse chronological order with the most recent post appearing first. This blog was created to reverse the order of the blog posts in the “Torah Tweets” blog to begin in the beginning.

The Alexenbergs invite other couples, individuals, and families to join them celebrating their lives through creating their own spiritual blog.

Bible Blog Your Life: Link Two Narratives

PHOTOGRAPH GOD: CREATING A SPIRITUAL BLOG OF YOUR LIFE
teaches how to Bible blog your life by linking your story to the Bible’s story.     

Bible blogging invites you to discover creative ways that your narrative relates to the biblical narrative.   It presents opportunities to use your imagination for discovering how the biblical narrative provides fresh insights for seeing the spiritual dimensions of your story-line.

Seeing your life as a narrative gives meaning to it.  A blog is a web log that can help you discern the significance of events in your life by joining them together in a narrative sequence.   You can make spiritual sense of your life by creating a blog that tells your story through sequences of photographs in dialogue with creative texts inspired by biblical verses.   

The biblical narrative is a rich and multidimensional look at an ancient world that is amazingly accessible to the contemporary reader.  It brings to life fascinating people and their complex interactions that have been the source of enchantment for readers from generation to generation for thousands of years. 

Although the Bible focuses on a particular family, nation, time, and place, it tells stories that resonate in the minds and hearts of people from diverse cultures through translations from the original Hebrew into hundreds of languages.  But it is more than a storybook.  It uses its stories to help each of us come to see humanity in its multifaceted relationships to God, spirituality, and morality. To Bible blog your life, you need to turn biblical stories into mirrors in which you can see yourself. 
Our grandson at the Sea of Galilee
"From generation to generation, they will dwell in the Land of Israel where the wilderness will rejoice over them, the desert will be glad and blossom like a lily.  Her wilderness will be made like Eden and her desert like a divine garden.  Joy and gladness will be found there, thanksgiving and the sound of music." (Isaiah 35:1, 51:3)
