I needed a break. The time had come and I needed to get away from work for a bit.
Now I do know that I can't really stop being a pastor, as it is who I am much more than what I do. I just stepped away from the responsibilities in the local church for a bit. This is the time.
The benefit for you, the reader of this blog, is that I often find my Blog voice while on vacation. The things I think about when I can let go of the day-to-day of the local church empowers my internal creativity. This in turn means I have to write it down somewhere, and here seems as good a place as any.
So for now, I dissolve into space to write...or at least for the next few hours watching football and futbol.
