Within 24 hours after Abram was born, I was already taking notes on something I wanted to write about birth and bodies, maybe a little theology…I suppose this is a sign that my head was clear, or maybe that I am a work-a-holic, or that the whole “theological reflection” model really took root when I was in seminary.

That said, this is a post in multiple parts: if birth stories make you queasy, you may decide that you’d rather skip The Details and go on the reflection, Spiritual or Embodied
