About the name of the blog....

Visiting Israel -- even as a tourist -- was one of the most spiritually energizing activities of my life. That's a whole `nother story but I say that just to tell you that I have, in fact, seen a real olive tree, in a real Holy Land, and can now grok what Paul is writing about here:

and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root (Romans 11:17b NIV)
I'm not ethnically a Jew, but what Paul is saying that we who have taken up the cross of the Christ are now spiritually fed by the same root; that is, the Lord God.

I may be wild -- but I'm happy to be connected.
