Happy New Year!
I am very grateful for all of you who read this blog, I have thoroughly enjoyed serving you these past 7 years and look forward to, Lord willing, many more. As we enter into the new year there are a few updates pertaining to what the blog will look like in 2015.
First, the blog shall continue. Do not think this message is given to communicate that I am done blogging. I am not. Blogging has been and continues to be an outlet that I find very helpful. It not only serves you well by pointing to Scripture, the Gospel, and godly reformed resources everyday, but it continues to be a very healthy outlet for me to ‘get out’ some of the things I think through. I feel absolutely no pressure to continue blogging, I only feel gratitude for God’s work in this endeavor and energy from His grace to continue blogging. I really do enjoy it, and I am glad so many of you do too. Praise God!
Second and more important, the blog will be ‘less frequent but more timely.’ Let me explain. For the past 7 years I have blogged 5-6 days a week. I am astounded at the mass of material that has been created and compiled over this time, but being a full-time pastor brings demands on my time that make blogging to that extent no longer possible. Therefore the blog will be ‘less frequent’ in 2015. Rather than blogging everyday I’ll aim to post 3 times a week for 2015.
One of natural consequences of blogging 5-6 days a week is that though you do amass a load full of content, it can at times be very un-moved by current issues because I schedule my blogs ahead of time. This naturally leads me away from interacting with the current news events of the moment, and I don’t like that. So, I will no longer schedule blogs ahead but will interact with the current cultural climate and issues going on in the Church and the World AS THEY HAPPEN. My heartfelt desire in this is to be used of God to display Christ from all of Scripture to show that in any circumstance there is grace for all of life.
That’s all, no other updates. Thank you again for sticking around over these past years. Lord willing, we won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
