What is the Gospel? (and status update)

My friend Mike Frye has a great blog called Shewmen and asked me to write a guest article. I chose the topic "What is the Gospel?" and it can be read here. Thanks Mike for that opportunity and the accountability to actually publish something.

Speaking of publishing something, I was fairly quiet on this blog last year. I have quite a few articles in various stages of completeness, some are about faith and some are politics. Some of the quietness came from a lack of time to do final editing. However, it was due in larger part to the fact that as I was writing them in the wake of the 2008 elections and the changes immediately thereafter, I found the tone and my heart to be moving in a direction I wasn't sure was where I wanted to go. In light of this, I backed off pressing the publish button.

I plan to revisit, and probably publish, most of them this year. With some perspective and prayer, hopefully they'll have the tone I wish them to have.

I pray everyone has a blessed 2010.

Post a Comment

Comments are welcome but I do moderate them. This is simply to keep things wholesome for general family viewing. By default, comments will be accepted. The few things that will cause a comment to be rejected are:

1. It is too long even though it may be well-written and make interesting points. It's supposed to be a comment, not an essay. If you have that much to say, write a blog article and backlink to me.

2. It is nasty, impolite or uses language that is unacceptable.

3. It includes a a link that has a typo or is broken in some other way.

4. It should have been sent as an e-mail since it is clearly addressed to me and does not appear to have been intended for other readers.

5. It is blatantly self-promotional. This does not mean it can't be self-promotional at all, but it should add some value over and above the marketing.
