The Absentee Blogger ...

It's been way too long since I posted, but there's a good reason.

Most of you know that I am a bivocational pastor, with my other gig being that of a newspaper editor. If you will notice, my last post was Jan. 25. That date is no coincidence.

In the small-town newspaper business there is a creature called "Progress Editions." These are extra sections we put out to boost advertising revenue in February, which is traditionally a low advertising month. That week was our first deadline.

This is also the time of year when I engage in what is called "Course of Study," which is mandated in order for me to retain my Local Pastor license.

So, between the newspaper, Course of Study, preparing for worship, and attempting to spend time with my wife, I've had little time to post on this blog, nor on Gathering Wool.

In the words of MacArthur: I shall return.

Grace and peace,
buzz
