For those that subscribe to and/or regularly follow my blog, you’ll notice that it has been a while since I’ve posted something of substance (or at all for that matter). The hiatus has been somewhat intentional, in that I needed a break. Blogging became a chore. It became something I felt that I had to do, rather than something I wanted to do. So I intentionally took a step back for that reason.
That said, I had anticipated a return to regular blog posts a few weeks ago. A great deal of reading and another completed chapter for my doctoral thesis means that I have lots of material to share––lots of quotes, musings, and (hopefully) insightful analysis. However, as much as I’m bursting at the seams to share, I just haven’t had the time. I’ve been busy. Here’s a bit of what I’ve been doing…
I led a group from our church on a trip to the York Rescue Mission. I’ve included videos from a couple of news outlets related to our trip.
I’ve been busy promoting, hussling and doing anything and everything in my power to fill seats for our church’s first (hopefully) annual professionally produced Christmas program. I’m extremely excited to announce that the performance is ‘sold out.’ All of the tickets have been claimed. Every seat will be full.
I’ve also made some significant changes to our church’s online presence. I’ve updated our website, been rethinking our Facebook page (and to great success, as we’re averaging over 1,500 views per week) and as I’ve added weekly summaries (which now include audio from the weekend’s message).
I’ve also been tied up with some consulting work; some freelance graphic design work; and, of course, spending some much needed and oh-so-essential time with Crystal and the kiddos.
All of that to say, in the coming weeks, I hope to return to some semblance of normal, as it relates to blogging. So stay tuned. But in the meantime, enjoy the few, sporadic updates and have a very Merry Christmas!
