For those of you who have noticed the silence in my blog over the past few months, I apologize. I was actually rather surprised when people mentioned it to me. For me, this is more of a writing discipline — I'm not sure I realized there were that many people who read the blog. When I taught school, it was simpler. I wrote every day when my students wrote. Now that I am a full-time priest, it's just too easy to let all my writing be channeled into newsletter articles, sermons, and classes rather than my blog. I'm back, and I hope to be a smidge more disciplined.
