And we are off…

Well…here I am…my first post written here at WordPress.  It feels weird to be writing here considering thefact that I have been with Typepad for over two years.  But I still have not “officially” moved here yet, but it is looking like I will.  I am still calling WordPress my “lake cabin”…for the time being. 

I think I have the blogroll completed and my favorite websites done.  I am still tinkering with the design yet.  So far I am liking what I am seeing with WordPress…and the best thing is that it is free (unlike Typepad).  I know Typepad is doing some work upgrading their site, and maybe I am just impatient during this time.  But it also might be that I can still do my ministry in the blogosphere without paying for a blogging service.  So I guess you can call my move here good stewardship (leave it to a pastor to find something theological in nearly everything).

Ramp project
The ramp project here at Salem is off and running.  The contractor arrived yesterday (Monday) and removed the railings.  Today they are tearing down the windbreak wall near the main door (I will post some pictures later).  I knew this project was coming for some time, but part of me was feeling a little nervous and uneasy as they started “destroying” the ramp.  Doesn’t make sense does it? 

So…with all this going on we are in the process of transforming the fellowship hall (downstairs) into a makeshift sanctuary.  And we kickoff our worship move this Sunday with our congregational meeting and potluck.  It is bad enough being upstairs in worship smelling the food that is downstairs.  Now we will be within 10 feet of the food.  Can you say “distraction”?

Well…I think that will do it for my first WordPress post.  I will be deciding by the end of the week if I will be making this move permanent.  But like I said it is looking like this will be my new home.  I apologize for the inconvenience.  It is like changing ones email address and asking people to change their contact information for you.  Anyway…thanks for stopping by over here and I hope to “see” you soon.

Take care.

  1. Well, if you put your thinking cap on, I think you can come up with a sermon about tearing down something to build it up again – only better! (Ramp example!) Congratulations and Happy Blogging!
