I've been thinking about doing this for some time, but in all likelihood, this will be my final post on this blog. Life in general, and ministry in specific, are both quite busy right now and I simply do not have the time to keep this blog current (six posts in the last four months might have already given you a clue). Anything of interest that I will link to or comment on will be posted on my Facebook page. And if you really want to hear my take on theological matters, you can join me on Sundays at Zion United Reformed Church (www.zionurc.org).
