I mentioned a week or so ago that I'd come across the idea of fake journalling. I first found out about it on Creative Every Day through Alternate Amy. Apparently April is Fake Journalling Month, but I was a bit late to join in. However, the idea stuck with me.
So, from now on, Monday will be fake journalling blog post day for me. I thought it would be fun to explore the gospels through the eyes of a woman around at the time. Not anyone particular, just a woman caught up in everything that was happening.
So where to start? I thought the appearance of John the Baptist down at the river would be a good place. But what would that be like for a woman at the time? The thought that came to me was that the women would go down to the river to do the washing. And now here was a crowd gathering to see what John was doing. Wouldn't that be annoying, really? And so, here's my first fake journal entry.
