Dear readers, it's been a while!
My apologies. Please know that I have missed sharing ideas with you as well as hearing from you.
I also know that if there were a list of seven deadly sins for killing blog momentum, not publishing a blog for a few months would be at the top of the list. Actually, after a quick Google search, there are several lists of seven deadly sins for online writers. Yikes!
The truth is there has been a great deal of transition over the last few months for me. I recently completed six and a half years of campus ministry at the University of Memphis and will be moving into teaching Bible at Harding Academy of Memphis in just a few short weeks. This transition process left me empty and filled simultaneously as most significant bookmark moments in our faith tend to do. With only so much of me to go around after work changes, being a dad and husband, playing the ukelele, road tripping to see family, prepping to teach, and battling the evils of out-of-control monkey grass in our yard, I had to pause and put writing to the side for a spell.
Now, its time to plant my backside in a seat and get back to the keyboard. I plan on writing more soon and maintaining some level of consistency in the process. I will return to Shame Revolt thoughts and also put out some other thoughts about faith, relationships, and whatever else strikes me via the blog tab.
I've spent some time this year and the previous speaking about the Shame Revolt material and received some great feedback, critique, and new concepts to explore in the future. If you would like me to come your way to have a conversation with your church, staff, students, or other group, feel free to shoot me a message.
As I think about teaching bible this fall I've been looking recently at some of God's covenants (promises) He made with leaders whom He raised up or people He called His own over the ages. They refreshed in my mind and heart of God's faithfulness through the ages for both the faithful and the fallen, angry and peace-making, near and far, you and me.
I look forward to exploring some of what that means for us very soon!
