And now I can talk about it . . .

I’m home. Well, actually, at the moment I’m in my office at work. But even that qualifies as being “home” for me. I got off an airplane at about 9:30 this morning, after having spent some time down south . . . as in Nashville and Dallas/Ft. Worth. I’m exhausted. I had a good time in both locations, but I got more than my fill of southern culture. It’s not all bad – it’s just definitely not me.

I got to hang out with some very cool people in both locations, and I’m feeling very good about having invested my time in that way . . . but the past few weeks have been a nonstop whirlwind, and I’m ready for a spell. I’m ready to try to pursue a normal, sustainable rhythm of life. Especially one that involves seeing my bride on a regular basis. Yeah, that would be good.

While I was away, I mixed mainly with people in my denom – which has its good points and bad points. For the most part, though, it was good. I got to see some of the parts of the denom that I actually value, which is helpful. Seeing real faces and hearing real voices talking about their pursuit of the Kingdom always helps me put the bureaucracy in perspective.

I will certainly admit that I saw and heard some things that left me scratching my head. I’ll stay away from a rant here and focus on the good stuff, though. (I’ll come back to the other stuff tomorrow . . .)
