Some time back, my blogging friend Fred Peatross shut down his blog for a while with the simple post, “This blog needs a rest.”
I think this blog needs a rest, too.
Recently it has been the battleground of concepts at war in my mind and heart that have left me drained and empty and angry and cold.
Most of those concepts have to do with “how to do church.”
Yup, I’ve let myself become a grumpy, irritating, belligerent jerk not just here, but in the comments I’ve left elsewhere, over “how to do church.”
I don’t know how to do church.
I really don’t.
I don’t have a clue.
And I don’t know how I could have finished a Lenten fast having gained so much arrogant weight above the neck.
I appreciate the kind words and encouragement so many have left here. I wish I had shown the same grace.
When I can show some grace again, I’ll come back here.
Right now, I believe I need to refocus on Christ.
