It seems that I’ve fallen out of the blogging habit of late. Not sure whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing . . . but I’m pretty sure it’s something. It’s not even as though I’ve had a boring life of late. I just haven’t blogged it. Here’s a quick (hopefully unboring) summary.

Last week was the Off The Map chat with Brian McLaren. Nothing too earth-shattering there, but it was good to see Rose and Winn, and a few others. I also got to meet some new folks that I’m looking forward to hanging out some more with. It was kind of funny, though, that I didn’t really get a chance to say hello to Jim Henderson at the event, but later that day while enjoying some joe at Zoka with my friend/boss, in walks Jim Henderson. Good man.

Since I mentioned it, part of why I was meeting with my friend/boss, Wes, was for my annual review. Ooooh, big scary deal, right? No, not really. Even given that by standard evangelical forms of evaluation (i.e. numbers of souls saved, butts in the pews, etc.), I’ve done very little of note. I’m really stoked that I’ve got two bosses who have given me freedom to explore and reimagine what success in this context might actually look like. And I’m glad that my bosses are really more friends than bosses. With all that sappy stuff, you’d think I’d have a brown nose right about now, given that at least one of my bosses reads this blog, but I assure you, these words are heartfelt.

Oh, what else? Well, this past weekend Michelle and I went and made a rare visit to a movie theater to see An Inconvenient Truth. It’s a pretty disturbing movie. Partly because of the impact we consumery type folks are having on our environment, but mostly because of the U.S. government’s willful insistence on policies that ultimately hurt everyone. It’s also very sad to realize that there are actually prominent Christians in this country who would publicly refuse to sign on to the Evangelical Climate Initiative. That just hurts my head.

That’s enough for now. I’ll post more later today or tomorrow.
