I still love blogging, although I am reading far more than I am posting.
I do feel a little side-lined, though. I simply don't appear to have the energy to invest in new stuff with everything going on at the moment. I don't seem to be able to write stimulating threads which attract links from other blogs and I'm certainly not doing very much at the cutting edge (any edge really) of alternative worship. I have been doing this for nearly three years now, so number of readers per day no longer matter, just that some read here regularly and value it (as I know some do).
But I am ministering to people and trying to be faithful and hold integrity with the values of 'emerging Church' (things like community, holding an honest connection with life in the real world, working with people where they are rather than where a Vicar might want them to be and so forth). I am also dropping the usual quantity of clangers. Life is real and pretty full on.
I have been working really hard (honest your Grace) to get boring, lifeless institution stuff out of the way as speedily and efficiently as I can so that I can do life-enhancing people stuff too. I think I have some bloggable material on this when I can get time.
I refuse to offer this as an apology although I long for time and space to do more alternative worship and make communities.
In this place of hard work and long days I would value the encouragement of knowing I am not alone.
