I'm Baaack

Friday, May 02, 2008

I doubt that very many people actually missed me or even noticed that I have not posted in about one month, but I have decided to resume my life as a blogger.

Over the last month, time constraints have been kind of heavy and blogging has dropped even lower in my priorities. I have also looked at my site some and realized that some of the bells and whistles that I thought were set up were not actually working - for instance, many of the labels did not actually return the articles that I thought they should return. I struggled a little bit about fixing the situation or if I should just hang it up and put up a closed sign.

However, as I thought about it longer, I decided not to do that. When I started blogging, I did so, in part, because I had some goals in mind. Some of those goals have morphed over the last year and a half, but I would still like to work on my writing and my thinking, I would still like to have an opportunity of writing about things that interest me (rather than merely responding to what interests others), I would still like to continue the fellowship that I have found online with some whom I may never meet in person, and I would still like to take a stand for Christ and make a difference for Him. So, instead of shutting this thing down, I have decided, instead, to renew my commitment to blogging during this month of May and do a 30 days of blogging challenge with myself. It is my intention (and now I am stating it publicly) to try to post something every day during the rest of the month of May, 2008.

I am also working on/hoping to complete the following adjustments.

* Re-labeling my older posts so that they can be found easier.

* Adding an items of interest sidebar

* Adding a blogroll (finally - and with disclaimers, of course)

* Establish a regular schedule of posting (e.g. certain things on certain days)

* Adding some specific Gospel messages or links

Anyway, this is my new commitment. We have a busy month ahead of us as a church, but I have discovered that there always seems to be a busy time ahead, so there is no time like the present.

Just my thoughts,

Frank

Thanks, Don.

I have enjoyed your church history notes. I would have loved to have taken that class from Dr. Panosian.

In Christ,

Frank

Whatever you do, don't stop blogging! It is, in my opinion, so important that pastors have a significant role in the blogosphere. I appreciate your posts... and to be honest, it doesn't bother me if you take a month or more break because next time you post, it just shows up on my RSS.

Grace to you.

I look forward to it.

Jason & Sam,

Thanks for the encouragement. I appreciate it. I know that some dates may be kind of skimpy (is that a word?), but I really do want to try to do some every day.

Jason,

Did you put out a musical CD? A friend of mine gave me a CD a couple of years ago from a guy with your name and I was wondering if it was you.

In Christ,

Frank

Hi Frank

I am on the road, so not checking in all the time. My daughter graduated from BJ on Saturday.

Dr. P really was tremendous. There was a whole generation of leaders teaching at BJ for some time who were committed to fundamentalism and full of evangelistic unction.

I have more to offer from Custer and some from Beale later on. Those classes were among the greatest influences on my life.

Maranatha!
