After a long hiatus I’ve decided to return to blogging at the Suburban Pastor. Here are some things I plan to write about in the days to come:
- A weekly post on the lectionary passage for the coming weekend (I’ve become a proponent of using the lectionary in my preaching. It’s an incredible resource with a rich history in the Christian tradition. I’ll write more about this soon).
- A weekly post about life in Suburbia. For better or worse, most of us live in suburbia at some capacity. (I hope to use this weekly post as a curation of what’s going on in suburban culture and how it impacts Christian faith).
- Book reviews, interesting finds, and other ideas I discover a long the way (Nothing really new here from what I was doing in the past, but hope to stay more consistent with these posts in the future).
- I am currently enjoying a pastoral sabbatical from ministry. A month in and it’s already been one of the best experiences of my life. I plan to occasionally blog about this as well.
One if the biggest roadblocks to picking up blogging again is the “Who really cares what I think?” question. The fact is I am returning to blogging because it’s a way to discipline myself to stay fresh in my thinking. A kind of journal. Making it public is a form of accountability (with the added hope it’s helpful to some others a long the way).
