Did you know I have a blog? I do! Well… sort of. By that, I mean it exists in the cloud somewhere, but I usually forget it’s there. If you’re a faithful reader, you can be forgiven for wondering if I forgot my login information, considering my last post was published in February.
Every now and then, my blog reenters my consciousness. This time, it happened when I quoted from Nadia Bolz-Weber’s (far more active, far more popular) blog in a recent sermon.
It’s February, which means if you haven’t done so already, it’s time to make your way to the store to purchase an overpriced Hallmark card for your spouse/partner, children, or grandchildren. Don’t forget to pick up valentines for everyone in your child’s classroom, and a Dutch Bros gift card for their overworked/under-paid teacher. While you’re at it, you may as well throw in some heart-shaped sugar cookies and dark chocolate as a gift for yourself, too.
For last month's musings, I somehow managed to sift through the ridiculous number of articles and posts I saved over a four month period, intending to winnow them down to my top five... "the best of the best." I eventually settled on my top six. Fortunately, this month was much easier to sort through, thanks to my newfound determination to keep up.
So, without any further ado, here's some of the things that had me pondering last month!
At the end of each month, I link to some of the formative pieces I read throughout the month. Throughout my hiatus from blogging, I was still tagging pieces of interest with which to (hopefully) engage on the blog. I won't post all of them here, as it'd take months. Still, here's a sampling of some of the blogs, articles, etc. that have had me musing over the past few months.
*Yes, I know that on October 19, I'm using the term "Summer 2015 Edition" very loosely...
It's that time again! Time to reflect on some of the formative pieces I read during the month of April. Here are just a few of the blogs, articles, etc. that have had me musing the past few weeks. What caught your eye this month?
The Lenten season and the events of Holy Week have kept me very busy at St. Giles, so blog posts have been hard to come by lately. For this, I apologize.
It's time, once again, for Monthly Musings - articles, videos, and other items that caught my attention and had me thinking during the previous month.
What articles have had you thinking? Feel free to let me know in the comments.
At the beginning of each new month, I plan to post some of the blog posts, news articles, and videos that have had me thinking recently. Some may have had me cracking up. Others may have left me in tears. Others I might see as being an insightful commentary on the state of the church, a life of discipleship, life in the south, or Oreo Cookies. What sort of insightful commentary might there be about Oreo Cookies, you ask? That's an excellent question. I'll let you know when I find it.
So without further ado, this month's Monthly Musings:
I'm a husband, father, news junkie, theatre lover, enneagram enthusiast, bi advocate, amateur foodie, wannabe barista, and an ordained pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA).
