It has been a while since I have posted something, but I guess that goes with being on a blogging sabbatical. Throughout this time I have been checking in from time to time and have been pleasantly surprised with the comments people have still left and the traffic still coming through here. Thank you for hanging with me.
I am not sure if I am back in full force yet, but I am beginning to think that I am about ready to, at least, slowly ease my way back in (kind of like slowing slipping into a hot tub). I have missed writing even though it has felt nice to step away for a while.
Now that I am working my way back some may be tempted to ask “what did you learn on your sabbatical?” I am not sure how to answer that. It wasn’t so much a learning time than it was a time to recoup; rediscover and re-energize. Those things I have accomplished…and it feels good.
I do have much to tell you. And…I have comments to respond to. I will get to all of those. So in the mean time, have a very blessed All Saints Sunday as you remember and celebrate the saints that have gone ahead of us; as we celebrate the saints militant (the newly baptized) that have joined the journey and as we celebrate our saintliness that we have been granted through Jesus Christ. It is indeed a day to celebrate and give thanks.
So as a close friend/mentor used to greet his congregation with: “Good morning sinners…good morning saints“.
Praise be to God always and forever, Amen.
