Hi there…my name is Eric…
OK…enough of that…<“we all know you haven’t been around for a while”>. I hope it doesn’t worry you that I was just talking to myself. Maybe I need a longer post Easter vacation. Maybe I need some more coffee (which doesn’t sound like a bad idea). Maybe I need…well…we could go on for a while here so I won’t bore you.
In any case…Easter is done (at least the day of Easter is, we are still in the Easter season) and my vacation is over. Now I am back in the office and I was greeted with another death in the congregation. Nothing quite like being thrown into the fire right away. But hey…the life of a pastor.
I spent the morning attempting to clear off my desk (notice the word “attempting”) and now the call of this 70 degree day is tempting me to leave the office.
Wow…this post has turned strange very quickly. Maybe I DO need some more coffee 🙂
Anyway…I just wanted to check in with you and share a couple things that you will be seeing here shortly:
(1) I am working on an adult class on Paul’s letter to the Romans. I have always been intrigued with this book and decided I wanted to dive deeper into this with some people.
(2) I am continuing my preparations for my educational event that I will be attending in June at Virginia Theological Seminary. I have a case study to write, a book to read and a couple congregational projects to do. And this is all due on June 15. I need to get to work. I hope to share some insights with you here.
(3) More ponderings as a pastor (me) serving in a rural context. Now that the program year is coming to a close in a month or so, I am hoping to do some more writing.
OK…enough rambling for now. Hopefully you long time readers aren’t too worried about me. And hopefully you first time readers aren’t being scared away. I am really quite “normal” (whatever that means).
So with that…God bless your day…and I hope to see you again soon 🙂
