I’ve now updated the Chaplaincy web site to link to this blog, so if you’ve found your way to here from there, nice to see you!

The veggie issue still remains. For those who don’t know, I gave up meat for lent, and haven’t been able to take it up again since. I’ve tried several times, but it’s either made me feel ill or not been anywhere near as satisfying as I remember it being. And I’m eating far better now that I’m eating vegetables all the time. I had an amazing vegetable sweet-n-sour last night… Mmmmm…. Anyway, the unresolved issue is that I can’t decided whether or not I’m actually going to officially become vegetarian. Bit of a big decision. Life-changing, one could say. Can I really allow myself to be associated with veggies? Does that social label fit my personality?

Hi Matthew… my suggestion is that you stop thinking of yourself in terms of labels (i.e., veggie / non-veggie) and instead eat whatever you feel like eating at the time. If you want to eat meat, go ahead and eat it. If you don’t want to eat meat, don’t. The world is full of people trying to put themselves in boxes, when in reality we should do what we feel we should do!
