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?
As of July 1, 2009 I have completed three years under appointment as a United Methodist pastor. At this point my appointment history is pretty simple:
As I begin my fourth year of appointment, I am looking forward to ordination in 2010 in the Kansas West Annual Conference. I hope to continue to serve God as a United Methodist pastor for many years to come.
On June 3, 2006, Clemmons United Methodist Church in Clemmons, North Carolina was host to the wedding between Nicole Scherle and Andrew Conard.
It has been a blessing to be married to Nicole for three years and I look forward to many, many more…
I have been married to my wife, Nicole, for two years today. It has been an exciting adventure and I am looking forward to many more years together.
