Taking another break from things UUA-related, I thought I would update everyone on my thinking as far as classes are concerned.
For those of you who don’t remember, I have a biographical essay and research paper due in Church History and a project in First (Old) Testament.
I have picked the subject for the biographical essay; Heloise.
However, I had been having a really hard time trying to decide what to do for the research paper and the project. Then it came to me. “I am black and beautiful, o daughters of Jerusalem, like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon.” For those of you who don’t know that is Song of Songs 1:5. Once that line came into my head I decided…I’m going to do the research paper in Church History about the African connections in early church history. And I am going to talk about the women who might be black/African in the First Testament. yee haw!
So if anyone reading this has any books to suggest or articles that might be of interest to me, drop me a line. I’m already looking stuff up, but it helps to have more than one mind thinking about this kind of stuff.
