I have started my third month serving as the pastor at First United Methodist Church in El Dorado, Kansas. It has been fantastically busy, fun, exciting and full of opportunities and challenges to have a baby, move to a new home and start serving as the lead pastor at a new congregation in the past three months.
While I am still continue to make the transition to our new home, it is time for me to start blogging again. I know, it has been months. However, I plan to begin with a few posts a week and see how it goes. While I have a lot of ideas about what to write about on this blog, I want to write what would be most interesting, helpful or intriguing to you. So, what will it be?
What would you like for me to write about on this blog? What would be interesting to you? What would you want to share with others? I am looking forward to beginning this blogging adventure with you again.
Here are some posts from Thoughts of Resurrection one year ago, that I think you might find interesting. Take a look…
Digging through the archives of this blog, I found a few posts from a year ago that I continue to find value in today. I invite you to take a look back with me.
I published the first post on this blog five years ago. At that time I was using blogger.com as the platform and was thinking about using it as a tool to communicate with the congregation for whom I cared. A lot has changed since then, but some things have stayed the same:
- I hope that people in the community and congregation where I serve will be able to read this blog to know me a bit better.
- Writing helps me process things
- I am humbled that there are people that actually want to read what I have to write.
- There is an ebb and flow to my blogging.
Looking ahead, what kind of posts would you most enjoy?
Here are a few posts from a year ago, I hope that you might take a look at two or three and add your comments. Enjoy!
I am spending time with family this week and am taking time away from the blog for the rest of the week. I hope that you will take a moment to enjoy a few popular posts from the recent past:

After a week and a half, I finally managed to put up the rest of my notes from SXSW Interactive. I suppose that shorter blogging breaks is indicative of more regular blogging. I have several weeks worth of posts in mind and I hope to be more regular about blogging.
I’ll get there…
