Life always is changing. This blog is going to be changing soon, I think. I believe perhaps it will be more interesting soon. It's pretty darned interesting now, especially when I post regularly. 🙂
I,Don Follis, will continue to be the writer, but the name will change soon. It will reflect a new ministry I am beginning a new ministry called Pastor to Pastor Initiatives. My new web site is up, but it isn't finished yet. I already am coaching 9 pastors. Very fascinating stuff, this coaching. And what a tremendous need I am finding.
This new ministry will augment a ministry in which I am currently involved. I do pastoral care with Vineyard pastors in the midwest region (Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin).
In fact, I may rename this this current blog and call it Pastor to Pastor initiatives. But maybe not. I am just not sure. Right now I am looking at all my options. Hang with me, and pray for me that I will have lots of wisdom on what it is I am supposed to do … what will be best, that is!
I am not going to decide for a week or so. If you look at my website, you will find a link to a blog that is different from this one. It has a different look and uses a different provider. I thought I would try integrating a new blog with the website. It's all through godaddy, the company I am using to build my website.
One problem, not a huge one I suppose, is that the editor with this blog (typepad) is better than the editor with the godaddy blog (Quick blogcast.)
Right now I am doing a lot of storming and thinking and pondering. After I decide what exactly I am going to do, you will know. I won't decide this week because I will be with 8 pastors I coach at a class in Wisconsin (Tuesday-Sunday) – Green Lake Conference Center. I may post while I am up at Green Lake, but I am not going to make major changes on the blog, unless I get a moment of utter clarity.
I doubt the content will change much, even after I decide. I'll just post more frequently, and I hope you find what I post interesting. I think you will. I suspect I will post more about my coaching with pastors and the current state of the church in the United States, but even that remains to be seen. Even if I call it Pastor to Pastor Initiatives, you certainly don't have to be a pastor to read it. 🙂
There you go. I've just told you a whole lot more than you ever wanted to know. 🙂
