A Random Fact from Wikipedia

I titled this blog 'The Warp and the Weft' because I like the image of weaving a life together with God. The strands of God and I so closely interwoven that it is difficult to tell one from the other. It's an image common in Celtic Christianity. God closely intertwined with humanity - symbolized by all that intricately interwoven celtic knotwork (and I thought they just were bored and liked to do complicated drawings!)

The 'Warp' are the threads that are fixed into the weaver's frame (or God in my metaphor). The 'Weft' are the threads that are woven through by passing the shuttle up and down the line (me in my metaphor)

Well it turns out that another term for the 'Weft' according to Wikipedia is 'Woof'. So this blog could be called 'The Warp and the Woof'. Given how warped and how hairy I am this strikes me as an amusing coincidence!
