In true emerald isle style, what better way to begin this new blog writing experience, than by welcoming you in with a good old cup of tea!
Sit down, relax, and put the kettle on, as we begin this adventure in cyberspace with some personal musings from a modern (perhaps post-modern, though debatable – more on that in a later blog 🙂 ) pilgrim’s personal walk and journey with God.
This God I am writing of is the Trinitarian Hebrew God, called ‘Yahweh’ who is Father, Son (Jesus Christ) and Holy Spirit, and available to each one of us, in a personal, living relationship completely relevant to 21st century living. He and He alone is the true definition of the over-used word, “awesome.”
Around the 13th century, the term “Jehovah” appeared when Christian scholars took the consonants of “Yahweh” and pronounced it with the vowels of “Adonai.” This resulted in the sound “Yahowah,” which has a Latinized spelling of “Jehovah.” The first recorded use of this spelling was made by a Spanish Dominican monk, Raymundus Martini, in 1270.
I am no monk, but I hope that in some small way these writings and written muses in some way teach, inform, provoke (and perhaps even inspire? ) those of you who kindly take the time to read and perhaps even enjoy it.
Like any great cup of tea, it’s best enjoyed fresh and with friends.
Let the great tea and ’emeraldscribe’ collaboration commence!
