As of 3pm on Wednesday, April 25, I am wearing a yarmulke. I will be done next Wednesday, at the same time. This is for the purposes of fulfilling an assignment in my inter-religious class. The options were following kosher or halal food laws, or wear a head covering. As I am addicted to the kind of food I am addicted to and want it when I want it, so I chose the headdress.
I have to wear this yarmulke for 7 days…all day…everywhere I go. Tonight’s small group meeting. When I take a trip to Starbucks. When I preach on Sunday. I’ll look something like this:
Whoa! I cannot believe how Jewish I look!
Other than the hopes of getting a good grade on the reflection paper I have to write, I pray that God will show me something in the midst of this experiment. I don’t exactly know what God can show me doing something like this, but I am always open the workings of the Spirit in my life.
If I were one of the literally ones of loyal readers of my blog, I would expect updates on anything interesting learnings or experiences.
(FULL DISCLOSURE: I am, like, 1/64th Jewish)
