I’m back, but not quite ready for blogging

Scott Wells in front of the Cologne Dom 2009-10-12 14.33.10My “scheduled outage” was a vacation Hubby and I took to Paris, Cologne and Bonn.

We’ve been back almost a week, but I’m not quite ready to blog again. I only have so many observations — church-wise — to make, and besides a project at Day Job is quite consuming right now, and plans there fill my thoughts even at home.

But the real “problem” is that I’m not sure what I have to say, and would rather be silent than try and fill the void. (Vaguer and more frivolous thoughts may go to Boy in the Bands.)

  1. Sounds like a great trip!

    Still would like to hear any thoughts that have come to mind on Hymns for the Celebration of Life.

  2. Not sure what to “say” here? Here are some ideas.. (1) why did you first decide to blog about Universalist Christianity in the first place? and have your reasons changed from when you first started in 2003? (2) I have not heard you comment much on organized Universalist Christianity (especially the newly founded Christian Universalist Association), what do you think about organizations like this? Are they worth it, or are they just temporary winds that eventually blow out? and (3) I’m curious about your thoughts on the art of giving sermons.. do you favor scripted sermons, or extemporaneous? or in between? and do you think the art of giving sermons is outdated or that it must change? and here’s idea # (4) – why not just blog with no plan? just talk. start blogging about your spiritual thoughts, your spiritual concerns, your spiritual interests, do a spiritual memoir or journal, etc. If all else fails, why not post Bible readings or hymns or passages from classic Universalist writers? what makes you mad about your faith? what makes you joyful about your faith? etc. etc.

    Just some ideas. Hope it helps.
