It's been a long time coming. The past year has been complicated and often challenging. My wife has been pregnant, struggling with her church to deal with dangerous lead levels in the parsonage, and finally, we've ended up moving (temporarily) and then our son was born!
He's doing well and my Paternity Leave has started (with a 2 week overlap with Kate's Maternity Leave). We're trying to figure out how to return to our charges, to be effective pastors, and to be good parents too.
Anyway... I should post. This space has helped me think since I started the process. And here's a post. At least one.
I'm not making any promises today. We'll see what tomorrow might bring, but my hope is that I'll keep with it this time.
