Long Time

It has been quite a long time since I have been on the blog. Even though I have reasons, I won't waste your time with justifications for my lag.

I will say, however, that I have missed the extra writing immensely.

In the coming days, I will be making a few changes as I reboot. First, I will be removing the comments feature. The only reason for this action is that I know I have done a dreadful job keeping up with approving and responding to blog comments and questions in a timely manner. I think I even offended some folks in the process.

Second, there are some thematic changes that will probably be taking place. Among them, I will be using this blog as one of several means of communication with our church membership. As a pastor, if I have something worth sharing with my folks, I may also post it here as a way of communicating with larger communities beyond.

Finally, there will still be some publishing of teaching notes via the blog, although it may not parallel what I am preaching and teaching on Sundays and Wednesdays. If you are interested in hearing the Sunday sermons, they are available for free as streaming audio or for download by visiting the media page on our church website, or by going to iTunes.

For those who have been readers or feed subscribers over the past few years, thank you for your patience. I look forward to once again using this online space as an opportunity to advance the gospel and God's mission through His church, as we the church grow in grace. That's the progress we're looking for.
