Well, it’s home stretch again for the Spring 2012 semester at UCF. Unfortunately, when school gets busy, my blog must be pushed to the back burner. In the meantime, I’m always tucking away little notes, photos, emails, or links for future blogs.
I chuckle to myself when I read blog-help articles that address this particular complaint: Not having anything to write about. In my mind, there is no such thing as running out of material. I’ll trade your all-the-time-in-the-world-but-nothing-to-write-about for my everything-in-the-world-to-write-about-but-no-time-to-write any day
Today, I just wanted to say hello, and say something that Joe Elliott (lead singer of Def Leppard) says at the end of each concert I’ve attended, “Don’t forget [me], and [I] won’t forget you!”
Upcoming blogs include: Q&A with NPR’s Melissa Block (All Things Considered), local music, mentoring, sign language, support groups, excellent blog comments, social media, tangent (my band), Archbishop Lazar and the Eastern Orthodox Perspective, video blog on the Love of God, evangelistic tracts, 3rd Wheel Educational Drumming, several book and movie reviews, personal poetry and fiction, church advertisements, a response to two of Frank Viola’s blogs, an overview of the top ten blog posts from my first year blogging, and much more. And of course, I’ll be continuing the Why Chan Can’t Erase Hell series.
Please feel free to send me your thoughts or blog suggestions (along with any relevant links or source info) if there is a certain topic close to your heart, and perhaps I will write about it. I might not get to it until next year, but better late than never, right?
I’ll leave you with the wonderful prayer a blog reader emailed me from the Book of Common Worship…
How great is your love, Lord God,
how wide is your mercy!
Never let us board up the narrow gate that leads to life
with rules or doctrines that you dismiss;
but give us a Spirit to welcome all people with affection,
so that your church may never exclude secret friends of yours,
who are included in the love of Jesus Christ,
who came to save us all.
