New Year, New Blog ... yadda yadda yadda!

A big shout out to everyone reading this blog (all three of you) for a very blessed New Year! Last year was certainly a roller coaster for me. January - May: Vicar of Gathered by Christ. May - October: Mercenary Presbyter preaching for the highest bidder (crass as it may sound, it's better than "unemployed"). October: Interim Rector of St. Luke's, Franklin Square. November: Minister of Visitation at Calvary United Methodist Church. Now? Still in search for a full-time call to a significantly extended interim rector's position (when I say "extended interim," it's with the existential understanding that all rector's positions are interims ... some are just longer than others!).

OK, so what's with the "new blog" thing? I've started another one this weekend where I'm posting my sermons and homilies. It's found here.

I just found that posting sermons with all the flotsam and jetsam in my brain was a bit too confusing. And, considering that I am currently in a search for a new and ... drum roll please ... full-time call, it made sense to put the sermons and homilies in a separate space.

So check out Proclaiming by Word and Example and leave me some feedback on what you find there. Homiletics is an interactive sport and I welcome anyone visiting to "lay it on me" and let me know what you think.

Prayers for your search for a full time call. I'll certainly check out your new blog. A good thing to have, so people can "interview" you by reading your homilies!

Thank you for the prayers! I had a friend suggest putting the sermons on a separate blog, especially while I'm in an active search.
