I sat down with the Bishop a few weeks ago and he asked me if I was still writing.
It was a hard question for me to answer, because I full well knew this blog has been neglected in the past few weeks and months.
But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing.
To start with, I finished my manuscript for this book as part of the Abingdon Press “Converge Series.” I even got my Cokesbury catalog in the mail yesterday and saw the cover inside! I’m not ashamed to admit I was a little giddy to be published. Although it isn’t in the Advent section, it makes a great Advent group study (hint, hint).
I also was busy preparing materials for Advent and Christmas for Imagine No Malaria.
So, words have been going down on pages.
But I haven’t done a lot of the personal reflecting that is a part of my blog writing, so in that sense, no, I wasn’t doing the kind of writing that really feeds my soul.
That needs to change.
