adventures in blogland
Okay... so this is my first post. I have been reading blogs for about a year now. I guess you could say I'm fairly addicted. I read all kinds of things but mostly crafty things, stories of my friends and family, and the adventures of parents, individuals and families as they make their way in the world. I've seen what support and encouragement these blogs can bring. I've been envious of those that are gaining in wisdom and clarity through the regular practice of writing and sharing. And... not too long ago when I ended my regular practice of sharing my own writing (I was a pastor preaching weekly in a congregation), my dad asked me, "What about my subscription?" I realized that the sharing of writing and reflection contributed to the larger community and to my self. So here's my contribution to the whole of blogland. My hope is that it is a way of sharing life together - making it richer, wiser, and tons more fun.
