A Brief Hiatus

I have been on a brief hiatus from the blogosphere for the last couple of weeks. And I have really missed it. Family, business travel, and every day life have conspired to keep me busy. Too busy for blogging.

But I had lunch today with a dear friend who I respect and admire a great deal. He is about to plant a new church in a nearby area of Houston. Pray for him and his ministry. You don't have to know him personally to pray for him. But as the Holy Spirit brings this post to your mind, remember him in your prayers.

He is one of several guys that I know on both a personal and professional level. He really challenges me to think about many of the ways that I have always experienced "Church". I work with another couple of guys like that. And I have several other professional relationships that have developed into real personal friendships where there is challenge and accountability and a call to continue on the way of Holiness.

I am working on another more significant post. Perhaps I can work on it next week while I am away again on business.

I'm pressing on the upward way,
New heights I'm gaining everyday;
Still praying as I onward bound,
"Lord plant my feet on higher ground."
