I shared last month in the post Preaching is like riding a bike... on the transition back to preaching full time. I thought it might be time for an update. The transition has been both joyful and nearly overwhelming. Joyful in that I love preaching. I love preparing. I love thinking and praying towards preaching again. The congregation has been extremely graceful. I am having a blast. Overwhelming simply in a workload sort of way. I have added, at minimum, ten hours to an already tough workload. But I am adjusting. Temporarily, it is cutting into blogging time, reading time and thinking time. But, that too will change as everything adjusts.
