So it’s almost New Years … tomorrow will be New Year’s Eve … and in 48 hours, we’ll be celebrating the New Year … 2009. I’ll be enjoying my family, and hoping the DAWGS can pull out a victory.
I’ve been pondering and thinking about next year – how God would use me, how I’ll invest my time and energy. Over the years, I’ve invested myself into way more activities than I could ever do great.
One thing is certain – I’m excited about continuing to pour myself into the ministry of my family and my local church position at SSCC. I believe God will continue showing up and showing Himself strong at our church in 2009, and I pray that I’ll become a better, more sensitive, and more anointed leader for that incredible ministry.
What about blogging? Has it run its course for me? I have to confess, I’ve tried to keep the discipline of posting routinely here, but it was increasingly more difficult towards the end of the year. Another key component to blogging is being sure I keep up with YOU – with your blogs, your lives, and what YOU have to say. I have gone weeks without having the time to visit the Google Reader, so if you’ve missed me on your blog, I apologize. Then again, I’ve missed so many of YOU as well. (and the reality is, if I’ve missed you, you probably won’t be here to read this!)
That being said, I’m praying for a God-given vision and clear strategy for how I should use this space in 2009. A huge part of my doing this is for my own discipline – to journal, to have something to reflect upon, to have an outlet for me to express myself to clear my mind. But connecting with you, networking, and hopefully – encouraging you in worship, family, and leadership is also a major objective.
To do that properly, I need to ask you … the faithful readers … what would you like to see in 2009? How would YOU like to see this space used? If you continue to subscribe (and thanks to the hundreds who do!), how can I be an encouragement to you?
Sunday Setlists: this has been a huge success, and each week, I read in the comments about how people love it, and have learned so much by observing what other churches are doing. I say we keep this for a while.
FreePlay Friday: this has been my random outlet. Not the most-visited day, by any means – but a chance for me to break off any specific topic and just be “me”.
I’ve considered doing “Tech Tuesday” – and devoting Tuesdays to postings that are more tech-specific – ie. loops, sound, recording, etc.
What do YOU think? What about the old podcasts I used to do … I still get asked frequently “why don’t you ever release new podcasts”, etc.
For the Kingdom,
