In fact, I haven’t blogged properly for nearly two years. I was drained of enthusiasm, and didn’t feel I could write with any conviction.
It’s a long story of how and why it happened, but in a nutshell, I was feeling discouraged and sore, and it would have been too easy to turn my hurt into a rant against those who I perceived had hurt me. It’s too easy to be critical of, and spiteful towards, others during conflict – to come out fighting.
So rather than hit out, I just stopped blogging.
But I’m back!
My enthusiasm has returned. I’m ready to write again.
Amongst other things, I want to write about what has happened to me over the last few years, and tell my story, but also reflect on why things happened the way they did. Inevitably, that will spin off in many different directions – so let’s just see where it takes us.
As before, I’ll be working the interface between church, theology and culture, but there will be some fun and factual stuff as well, and inevitably, I’ll be sharing what I’m thinking and reviewing what I’m reading.
I hope you find it useful, encouraging and stimulating.
