Blog Anniversary – 5 Years

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?

New Appointive Year

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.
