Wow, I didn’t see that one coming.
Reading, blogging, and thinking about church has been like my hobby for the last couple of years. I have been sincerely interested in the things that I read about.
Today, I suddenly feel done with it.
It feels a little scary, because I should be interested. I wonder what it might be like to just walk away.
I’m not upset or frustrated, just suddenly disinterested. Blah, blah, blah.
I don’t really want to quit blogging. I would really miss the interaction. But church has been mostly what I write about.
Today, I thought that I could tell you about the fact that I tried brown beer for the first time in my life. It was much better than I expected, quite smooth.
Or I could write about the challenge to pastors that I read this morning. Have you really done your job if your congregation isn’t equipped and capable of functioning without you? That is kind of interesting.
At the moment, I don’t really care about how anyone does church.
Maybe I’ll feel different about it tomorrow.
Disclaimer: I really am okay. This isn’t a cry for help or a threat to quit. It is just kind of a pause and perhaps a warning of a sharp turn ahead.
