Remember those days when I used to blog? Me too. Those were the days. The days when I had time. The days when I got to sit in front of a window with the birds chirping and the sun streaming in.
To be fair it rarely looked like that. Honestly my blogging efforts were done in stolen moments while life swirled around me. I’ve been happily writing lately but for the most part it’s sermons and newsletter articles which never make their way here. Now in the midst of this worldwide pandemic I find myself opening up my blog and offering thanks for it. The art of blogging, of sitting behind the screen without having the instant read of what people are thinking has helped prepare me for this moment of ministering to those I cannot see. It was a season of both preparation and reflection. One I’d like to get back to if I can.
This week though I leave you with the fruits of that season of preparation. I’ve been doing a mid-week meditation for the gathering where I serve and I leave the link with you now if you’re interested. In a way it’s like a blog online. Maybe more of a reflective podcast to be honest. Either way it has been heavily influenced by what I learned here and I expect that I will use both mediums from here on out as we continue in this season of unexpected challenge.
I hope this blog finds you well. I hope it finds you safe and healthy. Take care of yourselves friends. Take care of yourselves and I’ll see you again soon (in this space most definitely!).
