I'm Still Here ...

Just wanted to let you know that I am still around, despite the lack of substantive posts for about 3 1/2 weeks. The holidays were a particularly busy time, as usual, so I never got in any time to even post our holiday letter or even a note to say I won't be posting. Oh well. There should be some good stuff over the coming week. I have an update on my church situation, some thoughts on wealth, a summary of my holiday whirlwind tour and some other miscellaneous ramblings. I may even post my holiday letter, posthumously as it were. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, I've added another link to the left. Paul Frederick (Pfredy)is a good friend of mine and a frequent commenter here and he's just started his own blog. He was a member of my church until about a year and half ago or so. In fact, he was one of the four men I referred to back in June whom I respected greatly and had left our fellowship over the past couple years. Paul's decision wasn't entirely made with respect to his dissatisfaction here, but I believe that played a significant part in it.

Paul and his wife Carla moved to Columbus several years prior. The first time I heard Paul speak (Paul, it was back when TC was leading the church and you spoke at a midweek at the old Parke Hotel. Shared your conversion story, I think.) I knew that this man was more than he appeared to be. He had an appetite for and understanding of God's work that I still envy to this day. Over the years, the more time I spent with Paul (too little over all in the time he was here, to my shame) the more I learned and the more I loved him. When he left our church, one of the first of the four, it said something to me. The past two years or so have been real enlightening to me and I can remember sitting and listening to Paul, just wanting to understand what he obviously saw so clearly but seemed to elude me.

It was a real blessing to me when Paul began to be a frequent commenter here, both because we can keep in touch and because I value his insight. Not only that, but he's pretty much the only regular commenter that actually knows me outside of the cold faceless internet. I have a few other regular readers that do, but Pfredy's the only regular commenter. He'll also be the only person linked at the right that actually knows me as well. I'm looking forward to reading his thoughts on God and life.

Well, now that things are back to normal here with the new host, I need to do some house cleaning. Several sites on the blogroll are no longer active for various resaons, so I've removed them. My friend Paul (pfredy)... Read More
