I created this blog when I arrived as pastor in Piqua. To be honest, I was bored one night, and on a lark created a blog. When the set-up program asked me for a name, I had no idea what to type; so I typed in the name of a favorite novel and didn't give it another thought.
Nor did I give much thought to how long this project would last or what direction it would take. Now, seven years later, as my time in Piqua draws to a close, folks have asked: are you going to keep up your blog?
Well, it never occurred to me not to keep it up. I enjoy it, it seems to serve a purpose and I do hope posting my homilies and other thoughts does some good for someone. So, for the time being, I'll keep it going.
But maybe a new name?
For some time I've thought the vanities I've been casting into the bonfire were my own--that's a good description of being a pastor. Beyond that, I'm not sure the title makes much sense. But then, perhaps it doesn't have to.
Anyway, what do you think? New name? And if so, any nominations?
