Not Entirely Abandoned

I haven’t completely abandoned this blog, but have actually started a couple of long posts and just not finished them.  Doing okay here – over the past almost year of online absence have worked two jobs, developed a couple of additional interests, coped with family pressures and responsibilities, remained active in my congregation, bicycled far less and consequently gained about 6 – 7 pounds and an inch or two around the waist.  Still middle-aged, identifiably male, politically conservative, satisfied with my European heritage, unashamedly and unapologetically Christian.
