I haven't given up on blogging, it's just that the chemo is pretty much kicking my butt these days so it's rare that I feel like I have anything to say or the energy to say it. So, your continued prayers would be appreciated. The news is still good though - I am responding to the chemo and have high hopes of a return to something like normal in a few months, but the road to normal is going to be a little harder than I had anticipated.
In the meantime I wanted to share with you a new find in the blogosphere. Larry Osborne, pastor of North Coast Community Church in Vista, CA and author of several books is now blogging, or maybe it's just that I have just found him.
I have been to one of his conferences read his books The Unity Factor, Sticky Church and Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God, now republished as Spirituality for the Rest of Us. I would trade his thoughts on spirituality and ministry for 90% of the popular stuff out there today. He is refreshingly contrarian, as the one title suggests, and my best description is that he offers us a vision of life and ministry full of biblical common sense and minus the hype and super-spirituality that characterizes so much of what we read.
I will confess that I also have a great personal affection for him since he was one of the many who wrote a note of encouragement when I found out I had cancer, even though he doesn't know me.
That aside I highly commend Larry's books and now blog to you - Larry Osborne Live.
