Still Here!

Oh hi! Despite appearances, I am still here. So far, 2019 has been a major juggling act. I’m still doing the same academic work I’ve always been doing, but the format has changed a bit. Along with that comes some growing pains which have led to a LOT of mental and emotional exhaustion. And overtime. Far too much of that.

One thing I have managed to be consistent at is studying the Bible and listening and learning a ton from my favorite podcast, The Bible Project

I have sooooo many thoughts and topics swirling around in my head related to faith, and I can’t wait to write about them. This has been a process of evaluating what I do in my everyday life that really lights me up and what I’ll need to let go to make space for more writing time here. I’m really excited about the choices I’ve made, and I promise I’ll stop being so cryptic about it soon!

In the meantime, what Scriptures are leading your way? Learning tools? Life stuff? Hobbies? Let me know.

  1. I am in a transition space too and look forward to reading about your journey. Sounds like you are being called to some new thinking.

  2. I lead a life group and the attendance has not be that great. It’s something I deal with every now and then. We have a large group but sometimes only three show up. The other day I was feeling resentful about this. I was sick with a fever and I still took my butt to the meeting. But then I keep thinking of this verse:

    Matthew 18:20
    “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

    It’s not the number. It’s not. I also lead a high school group and I need to remind myself of this verse there too because many of my 10th graders do not drive yet so their attendance is dependent upon their parents bringing them and a lot of the time, they opt not to. It’s not about the number and it’s not about me.

  3. We’re searching for a family church, one that hits our various needs: liberal theology (harder than one might imagine here in MA!), justice-oriented, good preaching, family-friendly community. You know, a unicorn. Otherwise, trying to find time for the things that make me happy vs the things that just kill time.
