My blog has been silent for quite a while. For the past year and a half, I have been serving as the interim (transitional) pastor at Eastridge Presbyterian Church, in Lincoln, Nebraska. That has pretty much taken all of my time! So my blog has been dormant for a while. That’s about to change!
I am going to be preaching a series of sermons on discipleship and the church, and am going to be inviting the Eastridge church members to join in the conversation on this blog. I would love it if others would join in too. You don’t even have to be part of a church. I would love to have your voice be a part of this conversation as we explore what the church is about and what a life of faith is about, and the questions and challenges that come with that.
My next post will simply be posing a couple of questions to start the conversation, and to provide some fodder for you and for me as I begin this process of developing these sermons. Be forewarned – I may use some of your comments in the sermons that grow out of this! But I will not use any names without your permission, or any identifying information. If someone shares a story or a comment that I want to use that I think may inadvertently identify you, I will ask your permission first. Each week, I will post the video sermons online and post a link here to the sermon, so those of you who are not part of the Eastridge worshiping community can hear them.
Because we have some guest preachers and the associate preaching on occasion, there will be weeks that no sermons are posted, but the conversation here will continue.
Please note that all comments on this blog are moderated, so your comments won’t show up immediately. All comments are welcome, however I will delete those comments that are flaming, disrespectful or offensive.
I have not tried this before, and I have no idea if anyone will join the conversation, so it will be interesting to see how this works!
(If you accessed this from facebook, please leave your comments here, and not on facebook, so we have have the conversation in one place. Thanks!)
