I just wanted to let you all know what’s been up. It’s been a while since my last post, and life shifted in many ways that required my attention. I left in the midst of some really hard times and it’s been a struggle to keep up. I had to think hard about everything I was doing and, naturally, some things got lost in the shuffle–this blog being one of them. Now that I’ve finished my first year of grad school and have taken the time I needed to focus on those important shifts (which I will discuss more in later posts), I’m once again feeling that invincible spirit I had before I left California. I’m excited to come back to this with energy and a renewed spirit.
I’ve come up with some format changes that will hopefully keep you as interested as they will keep me engaged. I want to be posting more, but since there’s only one of me, I can’t commit to long posts every day. My graduate student’s schedule will not permit that. So, I will do one longish post each week and have some shorter posts throughout the week. Here’s the schedule:
Sunday: Sunday Night Slowjam. I have a deep affection for slowjams. Seriously. For whatever reason, I find them inspirational and moving. They very well speak to the heart of the human condition. Ok, that may be going a bit far. If anything, they’re nostalgic and as fun as a merry-go-round. I’ll post my favorites here on Sundays nights.
Monday: The Monday posts will follow the format of previous long posts. Some Bible, some philosophy, some personal reflection. I’ll do my best to mix it up.
Wednesday: Poem based on a lectionary text. These will be short and sweet… or not sweet depending on the text.
Friday: Friday Night Post. These will be more of housekeeping and accountability posts. Don’t expect one every Friday. I will make them as I have announcements that don’t quite fit with the other content. They will always be labeled as “The Friday Night Post” with a number so they are easily identifiable.
Hopefully this will keep it fresh. As always, I welcome your feedback, questions and suggestions. Get to me through the comments or the contact page.
Thanks for sticking with me ya’ll. You make a guy feel special!
