Tomorrow morning, earlier than I’d like, I start my new position in a year-long CPE program at a hospital in downtown SF. When discipline breaks and I let myself think about it, I realize I’m pretty nervous about the whole venture. Its a step up for me in a lot of ways, into a situation where I don’t have any background or familiarity – which is one of the things that makes it different from taking over for the senior pastor during my internship when he went on sabbatical.
I hope I like it and I hope I do well. We’ll see. If not, this’ll be a long damn year.
I might continue blogging in some way about theology. I’ll still be visible now and then as a commenter on other people’s blogs when I feel like I have something to say and a bit of rapport with the blogger.
But the stage of my life, my journey as it were, that this blog was intended to help me move through is mostly over now. I’m not going to be a student again for a very long time – possibly never again. I’ve learned a lot in the past three years, and have also experienced anxiety that I would not have believed going into it.
Maybe that’s just what life is. I’m still somewhat young, so that could be, and I might have just been learning. We’ll see.
If this blog is on Google Reader or another of your aggregators, there’s no reason to delete it. I won’t be doing that, and I might even post again – I’ve got about a dozen zygotes of posts from, in some cases, a long time ago. They might see the light of day.
I’ll definitely be putting more time and work into Escape, which at this point will become my ‘main’ blog. We’ll see how that goes. I get a lot more hits on that blog, but a lot fewer comments. Maybe I can fix that.
Feel free to contact me directly (my email is on my profile) if you have something to say, or leave it a comment on this post if you want others to read it.
