Our blog has morphed over the years. It started out as a place to post notes/summaries of our weekly sermons. Later, we reflected on classroom experiences at Asbury while working on D.Min. degrees.
In those days, we didn’t do much personal/family blogging. That changed after we started pursuing our first adoption from Korea. Looking at our blog today, you might be surprised to learn how much of a struggle it was for us to decide whether or not to post the first photo of Ethan that we received from Korea (we received six photos but only posted one).
Since then, our blog has been a place to reflect on life and leadership.
In recent weeks, our blogging activity level has diminished. Maybe it’s because Ethan and Sarah’s adoption processes are complete and transitions are well under way. No doubt the extra time and energy that our final year of the ordination process is a (major) factor. Or maybe it’s because we’re not sure where the blog needs to morph next.
So, where do we go from here? Well, I think we’ll still focus on life and leadership. The site is long overdo for a redesign. I’d like to find a better way to organize the 850+ photos on the blog, most of which are buried in old posts. I’d like to reflect more on what we’re reading/learning, especially in the areas of leadership and preaching. So, we’ll see.
