Most changes aren't permanent, but Change is

It dawned on me that I haven’t posted here in a month, and I realized why. I have less to say in this riff.

My Watchman blog has had much to do with processing a part of my story that in many ways has been reactive. I sensed a need to make a drastic change, and with that came an onslaught of reaction, reaction that required much thought and justification, if you will. I needed constant reassurance that what I was doing was OK, and since I had very few voices providing that, I had to look within to sort it all out.

Writing from this posture came easy, but I believe as a writer, I need to push myself to bring new thoughts.

According to my Gallup Strength Finder profile, one of my strengths is Futurist. My guide told me this is one of the more rare strengths on the grid, and that maybe one in a hundred have this. In Gallup fashion, I want to lean into that strength more. I want to see if I can provide more forward images of what I see ahead, and not just speak from where I’ve been. This may take time, and I may not be able to post as often as I have, but I will see what I come up with.

I am contributing to a new blog called You can point your RSS reader to The Survivor page. My stuff will be there a couple times a month.

Thanks for reading. Who knew this little thing would turn into what it has become.

Power to the Pastors. You’re gonna get the Church back.
