First of all, Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!
And next, Hello again!
This is weird. I walked away from this blog almost two years ago. I said my farewells and had no intention of ever returning. And yet I could never bring myself to remove this blog’s presence from the Internet. Now I wonder if part of me secretly hoped for or even planned for a return. Who knows?
The time away has been good. I didn’t have any major theological insights or spiritual breakthroughs. Nor did I accomplish some monumental earth-shaking task. I’ve simply endeavored to become what I’ve mentioned in my blog for years — I’ve tried to be a good man.
So why return to blogging? I’m stilling piecing that one together. But here’s what I know.
Two years ago, I was becoming increasingly aware that my voice was only contributing to the narcissistic noise that defines our culture. I wanted to be heard and therefore I knew I needed to be silent.
Now, I just want to live. And for me, an essential part of living is reflecting and writing. It’s a subtle difference, but an important one.
So I’m back. I’m grateful for what has been. I’m content with what is. And I’m excited about what is to be.
