Almost famous

On my first day back from vacation, I took some time to go through my emails.

Whoah!

They collect, don’t they.

But this time it wasn’t all bad. I’ve listened to Drew Dyck several times and read his latest book last year. I receive the Church Humor newsletter from Christianity Today that he curates.

Imagine my surprise, then, when I made his weekly email newsletter.

Okay, I indirectly made it.

He posted a screenshot of a tweet I sent to Unvirtous Abbey. Still, someone somewhere is praying with me:

A strange thing

I’ve had a website for about 15 years.

Go back about three posts and you’ll read that exact line.

About three months ago I deleted my website. It was an accident, of course. Since that time, something strange has happened.

If I were to guess, I averaged one post per week.

In the three months since my digital accident, I’ve posted three times.
Is it the pandemic? Am I all written out? No doubt I’ve focused my attention on other projects this year.

What should fill a pastor’s website?

That’s what I’ve been asking myself. As you can tell, I haven’t quite figured it out yet.

How do you find inspiration? What would you want a pastor to put on his website?

Oops.

I’ve had a website for about 15 years.

Do you know what I’ve never done a good job of doing? Backing up said website. This afternoon, that bit me good.

With one click of the mouse I erased my website.

I didn’t cry. I did sigh.

Now, I’m figuring out what I want to do to start over. That’s not always a bad thing. I hope you don’t have to endure the loss of your website, or whatever.

But take a deep breath. It’s okay to start over.

Stay blessed…john
