It has been 649 days since my last blog post.
Much has changed since then.
- Our children are 3 and 2, respectively.
- I switched from WordPress.com to a WordPress installation, thereby starting over on traffic and links.
- I am beginning my third year as the pastor appointed to serve First UMC of El Dorado, KS.
- We have a brand new back lawn and a new roof at the parsonage.
- I am a member of the Great Plains Annual Conference.
What has not changed is that I am blogging to contribute to the renewal of the church. My hope is that this will be accomplished by:
- Making resources available which I have developed for use in the local church
- Contributing to a middle way / extreme center theological position online
- Sharing who I am with the congregation to which I am appointed and the annual conference in which I serve.
- Sharing a distinct voice with background of serving as an appointed pastor for six years at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection and currently at First UMC El Dorado.
Will you please share your thoughts, feelings and opinions about what will help accomplish this purpose?
