INTERPRETING MAL'S EXPERIENCE THROUGH THE EYES OF NAOMI

Been thinking about the similiarities between the experience of Mal in and after the battle at Serenity Valley (pilot episode) and the story of Naomi from the biblical book of Ruth.

Call me no longer, Malcolm (which means ‘follower of St Columba’)
Call me Mal (which is Latin for ‘bad’)
For the Almighty has dealt with me badly.
I went away full
But the LORD has brought me back empty;
Why call me Malcolm,
When the Lord has dealt harshly with me,
And the Almighty has brought calamity upon me?

What do you think?

What I'm reading is really good- and I am impressed. I'm marking the last 2 chapters with pen and will try and send it through b4 half term.

I'm linking your blog 2moro- hoping to get some hits to you.
