Some of you have emailed, messaged, and poked me…wondering where in the heck I went! Well, having finished blogging the three year cycle of the lectionary, this fall I’ve been resting on my previous work. I’ve also be struggling with health issues these past two months which has contributed to my delinquency. But, I think I’m about to turn a corner, and I’m energized to “get back in the saddle” this Advent and begin a new three year cycle of the lectionary—probably looking at lessons which I passed over in the previous series, or looking at the same lesson from a different angle. I’m also in the midst of freshening up the blog—and there should be a “reveal” sometime in early December. To those who have read this blog for a long time, or those that just happen to stumble upon it…thank you so much for taking the time to read what I’ve written, and thank you for your ministries to the Church and to Jesus our Great Shepherd.
