So, I haven’t posted in a while and there’s not really a good reason for it. Well, I suppose that I wonder if anybody’s actually reading this thing. If no one is, then why post? But nonetheless, here I am again. It must be my insanity resurfacing.
I did want to give a little “teaser” as to what I intend to post in the near future. I’ve been writing a little prayer study for Court and me which she wants me to post. I haven’t reformatted the first one yet to go on the blog, but I’ll do that soon. It’s really nothing impressive, I hope you might read it, benefit from it, and give me feedback and reflections. That should be coming very soon.
Also, I’ll be putting up another photo album, this time with black and white photographs. I’m actually taking the pictures to hang on our living room wall, but I’ll share them when they’re finished. I don’t quite have all of the shots I want, but I’m close. I’m trying to be all artsy, but I’m really quite terrible at it, so it’s taking me longer to do this project than it would other, more creative people.
And finally, I’ll soon be posting (a little farther down the road) on the centrality and indispensability of the Gospel in the Christian life. I’m not sure when I’ll do this or how long it will be. I’m actually rather nervous about it because I don’t want to mishandle something so precious. This may seem like a rather mundane topic, but it has become increasingly obvious to me lately that it is most definitely not mundane. And I hope to explore why when I post on it. To boil it all down to a summary statement, the Gospel is being taken for granted by Christians, with the result that it’s being undervalued, at best, and in danger of being lost, at worst. This is a topic about which I care very much and so I encourage the two (or less) people who read this blog to work through this with me, give me feedback, ask questions, call me an idiot, whatever. But I ask you to work through it with me. I hope it will be valuable both to you as you read and me as I write.
Anyway, that’s what I plan for the near future if the Lord wills. Please pray for my family as we seek to follow Christ with our every thought and action. And pray for me as I work through these very important matters and prepare to share them with others.
P.S. Great news: we finally found a church to join! It’s Sojourn Community Church in the Germantown part of Louisville. We’re totally pumped about it!
