It’s been about three months since I posted anything new here. There are several reasons for this, mostly having to do with being busy at work, keeping family a priority, and focusing on another important project (more on that in another post). Anyhow, I wanted to at least say, “Hi, I’m still alive.”
I also wanted to follow up on the Becoming Unwanted series. Thank you to those who commented and anyone who has said a prayer for me and my family. Kim and I are still in Limbo, I guess, waiting for some perspective and unity about what to do next. We miss not having the identity of connection with a church, but we are discovering some new freedom to pursue some personal relationships that we didn’t have time for before.
I should have posted about this before (although most of my readers already know this), but I had the opportunity to write a follow-up essay to the Becoming Unwanted series as a post for Evangelical Dialogue on Evolution.
My post was titled, “Is there an Evangelical Church Home for the Evolutionary Creationist?” It was the first guest post in an 8-part series called “Evangelicals, Evolution, and the Church”. I was glad for the opportunity to share my story alongside those in similar (though not identical) situations. I’m challenged by what the others are sharing, as well as by the comments and questions I received.
My friend, John Armstrong, also mentioned my post in his blog post on March 5 called “Evolution, Science and the Constant Warfare in Evangelical Churches“.
I guess that’s about all the buzz for now.
Until next time,
