I have been taking a little break from blogging the last couple days. This past week has been a whirl wind since “the vote” at the ELCA CWA. Many of my posts and comments here have dealt with issues from the CWA (Churchwide assembly). This will continue to be an important topic to think and pray about and discuss…but I need a little break to process. There are some comments on this blog that I need to attend to and I plan to respond to those early this week…so I thank you for your patience. I am also working on a plan to meet with parishioners in small groups to listen to their concerns and questions while I share more information about the ELCA. I have yet to finalize details yet, but when I do I will be sharing this plan with you here.
These next couple weeks may continue to be a whirl wind for me though:
–Salem’s 125th anniversary celebration is just 2 weeks away…with much to do yet.
–Confirmation, release time and Wednesday Night Live is beginning in mid-September.
–My wife and I are in the midst of home remodeling…which we are trying to finish before the 125th anniversary (we are having an open house at the parsonage).
So there’s much to do…and with that probably much to blog about. But if you see a little dip in postings from the past week you will know why. As I say every year…September is one of the busiest months of the year for me (next to December and Holy Week/Easter month).
In any case (and as always) I thank you for your comments and for stopping by. Your presence here is extremely important to me and to others who visit. Your thoughts and questions cause me (and others) to think. So thank you and God bless!

I have been reading your thoughtful posts. I too continue to process what this means and what are the bigger questions that have not sunk in yet. It is indeed an interesting time to be a vicar. Prayers for you and your colleagues, and your flocks. May God guide us in our journey.
Indeed…we can’t do this on our own.
