New blog series coming up

Greetings. I can’t even remember the last time I posted an update on this blog. The new series I am about to start will be my reflections on the demise of Wildwind Community Church, a faith community I planted in 2002 and from where I retired from ministry in 2016. I have not spoken publicly of this to any substantial extent since leaving Wildwind, and the first of my posts on the topic will explain partly why.

The vast majority of my posts are now going to my counseling page, set up for my private counseling practice, at If you’re interested in that kind of thing, you can subscribe for new posts right there on that page.

Unfortunately I can’t give you a date on the series. I can promise you it’s in the works, and I know it’s time for me to start trying to put some thoughts together about it. It’ll be here when it gets here. So far in two years I haven’t been able to find the words to do this, and I know I can’t force it. Even now the thought of writing these pieces feels daunting.

I haven’t received hardly any “unsubscribes” from this list in the two years since I stopped posting regularly, and more have continued subscribing, even though things are getting so old. I hope that means some people are still benefiting from this labor of love, as I can honestly say that I have never written on any blog, or spoken from any pulpit, things I did not deeply believe, much of which I still believe today. My inability today to live fully into those words was always a feature of my ministry, not a bug. I don’t see that ever changing.

More on what all of that means coming up in this series.
