A lack of postage on this blog seems to be due to two main factors:
1) I am a busy stay at home mom who can’t really even keep up with the laundry because there is too much hockey to be played and fruit to be cut, walks to be walked and discipline to be dealt. Blogging is one of the last things I get to on the computer, after email, facebook, blog reading and sermon listening.
2) I’ve been very reserved with what I’ve been willing to share lately because in the past I have, at times, felt very attacked for my opinions and convictions on certain things. Well it’s been a while since I’ve taken a beating and my courage has rebuilt to the point where I feel just about ready to put myself on the line again. Admittedly I am not always one to present my thoughts with the utmost tact or to hold back because I might hurt some feelings. I’m not sure if this is something that needs repentance or not.
I can’t repair the fact that I don’t have a lot of time to blog, and I’m not lamenting the absence of time because it is way more fun to play with the boys and hang out with my husband than it is to blog. Nonetheless, I have so many thoughts swirling in my mind lately, thanks largely to all the sermons I have been listening to by Mark Driscoll from Mars Hill Church in Seattle. He is a wise man who teaches the Bible without apology and God is using his teaching to reawaken an understanding of a lot of the doctrine and convictions that my dabbling in the Pomo/Emerging/whatever you want to call it Church had called into question.
Jesus, God made flesh for the salvation of our souls, desires repentance of sin as we walk humbly as he did. He lived the perfect life we have not lived and died the death we should have died so that we could be made right with God. Thank you Jesus. I pray that I will be able to articulate my thoughts clearly as I wrestle through some stuff. I hope this blog can be a place for me to freely share my thoughts and not a war zone of criticism. Let’s dialogue.
I don’t know anything about podcasts, Clay takes care of all the technical stuff for me, but if you go to the Mars Hill website you can access a ton of sermons. I definitely recommend checking it out and hearing for yourself some really solid Bible teaching.
