About six months ago, in an attempt to streamline my life and give myself permission to not accomplish everything all at once, I took a soft stop on a book project that I had been working on for the past year. But times have changed and I am once again open to the possibilities. So with my pending departure from Mission Bay Comunity Church at the end of May looming and after some encouraging conversations with friends and some peeps in the biz, I am buying another ticket for the book-writing train.
I am still not convinced that my story and thoughts are all that book-worthy, but this is just one of those things that I’ve always wanted to do, so I am going to carve out the time to do it. My awesomely understanding spouse and I have agreed that June will be my month to finish the book, so during that time, I am going to hole up as much as possible and finish the darn thing.
For those that are wondering about the “next thing” for me, this is just one thing that I’ll be working on in the next stages of my life, but pretty much everything else sits in various stages of “conversation.” While, there is little anxiety for me in this uncertainty, your prayers are appreaciated, both for me, my family and for the congregation that I am leaving.
If you want to read the intro and a little about why I stopped the first time, head on over to “Embracing the Gray” a book writing adventure comes to an end and have a looksee.
