Work is very intense right now, and is the big reason for me not blogging much. I worked 16 days straight (fifteen with overtime), had a day off, and then worked another seven overtime shifts. But as much work as there is, it is very enjoyable. A very complex plant trying to start up is very exciting and full of surprises. Sometimes learning what shifts everybody will work is hour to hour and not day to day. Unique problems arise, and problem solving is the order of the day.
Church is also in startup mode. We've been occasionally meeting with a group that is "planting" a church, and the much desired fellowship is picking up. There's a much greater emphasis on people than programs and we're enjoying that too. I miss blogging and I believe my writing has suffered a good deal over the last year or so. Even Friday Night Potpourri isn't regular anymore. Until the startup at work is successful and things smooth out into normal routine, it looks like I'll be a working fool. And that is welcome after so long without gainful productivity. I'd love to drop some more theological posts here in the near future, but life things may be more the speed in the foreseeable future.
