Thank you for your patience. Since retiring from parish ministry, I have been intentional about what I embrace and what I let go for this present season of my life. Writing ELOGOS is one of those things I want to continue. But I will be changing it. It will evolve much like I am evolving into this new personal time and the present age for all of us. ELOGOS started about 25 years ago as a quick, short, pithy devotion based on 1-2 Bible verses for college students who had no patience with hitting a down key to scroll on their first generation cell phones or pagers. The phones have dramatically changed and so have I. There is much more fluidity to life than stability.
So for this season, I will continue writing ELOGOS. It will happen as frequently as I can make it happen. I can't promise every day. I may surprise myself. It will not be based on the Biblical lectionary texts for the upcoming Sunday. That is a part of the fabric of parish ministry that I have stepped away from. I will use different mediums for my place to swim a bit in the present waters of light, mystery, and wisdom. I have no idea what that will look like, but that is the fun of it.
If I have disappointed you and lost you already, I wish you well on your journey of faith and thank you for letting me walk with you for however long you have been reading ELOGOS. Do feel free to unsubscribe or send a message to that effect and I will do it for you. Three volumes of past ELOGOS devotions are still available in print or Kindle from Amazon. The ELOGOS website: elogosdailydevotions.com has about 5 years worth in the archives if you wish.
For the rest of you, Thank you. Let me know what you think, feel, ponder. I will do the same.
