my own most-read post

This isn’t really necessary since I did only one real post this week but here it is anyways. My blogging has slowed down considerably the last few months. I have a few good reasons (and a few not-so-good-ones) for this but mostly, it’s about time. 

In which I know, I’m sorry, and I hope I was kind ::

I will gather up all these disparate seasons and thoughts and opinions and experiences, and hold them all in my hands with gratitude.

I’m able to find something good in the over-the-top excessive prosperity preachers and the smug theologians and the pot-stirring elitists and the overly passionate kids in the stadium light shows and the evangelistic new mothers and the disillusioned bitter cynics, because I’m all of those things, too. Someday I’ll add the woman I am now, the theology I practice, the words I write so earnestly to that list.

    Holy junk. The bloggess post was hilarious. And the conversation happens so often at our house.
