I look forward to each issue of Sojourners, but I must admit dismay when I started to read the articles by James Jones (“Priests in God’s Garden”) and Ched Myers (“Pay Attention to the Birds”) in the December issue. The articles were rife with allusions to Bible verses by numbers rather than by words.
I teach English literature. What would happen if I tried to discuss a Shakespeare play by saying, “Notice the nature imagery in Act I, scene 3; Act II, scene 6; Act III, scene 7”? Eyes would glaze over. Jesus was a master storyteller. Please emulate him in Sojourners.
