Dear friends, I have been amazed by the response to my last post “doing Church in a New Key”. I didn’t think there were so many others with the same itch! I have more to suggest along those lines, but it will take me awhile to get it done.
The muscles in my neck have gotten very weak and it’s almost impossible for me to hold my head up. Which means other muscles are wearing themselves out to compensate and that results in a lot of pain. Consequently, I’m wearing a narcotic based dermal patch that keeps me pain free most days – BUT – the result is a fuzzy head and lethargic behavior, and writing is almost impossible many days.
I will do what I can in the next several days, respond to some of your comments, and take my thoughts a little deeper.

My friend the Pentecostal Presbyterian recently emailed us Presby pastor types in Wyoming a little note. Huh. I thought I was the plain spoken one in the presbytery … Christ’s Church all over our nation finds itself in CRISIS MODE … Continue reading →
Summer camp is so cool, but Christian summer camp is utterly amazing. I should know, I was in the business during the late eighties and early nineties. In those days, the Presbyterians in the central and southern parts of Western … Continue reading →
