It has been a long time since I have had the time or inclination to post to my Faith2Face blog. I certainly need to go back over previous posts and tidy up a little, especially as WordPress have so magnificently improved the platform. I also need to explore these improvements to see what works best for this blog.
My absence has been primary because I have been out of the pastoral ministry for the last five years and focussed much more on administrative matters in the Church. This does not mean that I have not been “Facing up to Faith” – indeed, quite the opposite – my day to day decision making and leadership direction has had to be firmly grounded in my faith and trust in Jesus as Lord of my life. Available time has been the main inhibitor. Nonetheless, I have kept up the practice of posting a short prayer, arising from my early morning devotions, on Facebook each day. I am a little overwhelmed by the response to these prayers which, while primarily relevant to my own life, seem to have touched the mark in many other people as well.
You can follow my Facebook feed (which also includes all the ordinary posts like family events, my favourite music clips etc) here.
I do get invited to preach in local congregations and so my first “new” posts will be the messages which I bring on those occasions.
