Well, I've found that I need a way to get away from the dissertation (or lack thereof) for a bit and think about things other than preaching and spiritual formation. So this is hopefully going to be a good outlet for me to organize my thoughts on a number of different issues.
Of course, I realize that there is an inherent danger in being a minister with a blog. There are all sorts of things that can be said on a blog that can be taken by parishoners, a board of ordained ministry, or other group and used for some agenda or another. It's a risk I'm willing to take, I suppose, since my conversation partners tend to be a bit spread out.
Anyway, this blog will cover many things: general life happenings, theological and philosophical musings, and - yes - even preaching and spiritual formation, where appropriate.
To all the folks who haven't heard from me in a while, I'm sorry. The dissertation process has been a stressful - and at far too many times a depressing - experience for me. There have been far too many days of "cabin fever" where I have never left the apartment, but haven't gotten any real work done.
For a brief update:

Off to try my new self-care resolution and hit the path at the greenway. Until later!
