IN ABSENTIA

I’ve been absent from blogging for the past couple of weeks for a reason.

For the months of January and February I am serving as Acting Bishop of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod, while their bishop, the Rev. Kurt Kusserow, takes a two-month sabbatical.

We began planning for this time about six months ago, and when the new year finally came around, I soon realized it was going to be a lot to juggle my writing with my other responsibilities. Even though I write for fun, it does require a great deal more thought than just sitting at a desk and typing in the first thing that comes to my head. I do take this seriously.

So therefore, pardon my absence. I will be back on a more regular basis in March, I promise.

But in the meantime, I must devote my time and effort to the people of God in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Be back in about six weeks…
