After a Respite, From Law to Grace Returns

Following my trip to Phoenix for the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention in June, where I planned on live blogging, but instead ended up spending most of the time in my hotel room sicker than I have been in a long, long time, I thought that I would get back to blogging straight away.  For good or for bad, that did not happen.  In the last month, I have taken a much-needed respite from blogging, not only to regain my physical strength, but also my spiritual and emotional strength.

Even after a week of teaching 23 5th & 6th graders at the Big Apple Adventure Vacation Bible School last week and a trip to Albuquerque for a Baptist Convention of New Mexico Executive Board Meeting/Vacation with my family this week, I am strangely re-energized and ready to start writing again (that after spending the whole day at Cliff’s Amusement Park and going on a few rides that I shouldn’t have).  Most of my blog posts have been written between 10:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. (as this one is).  Since my illness in Phoenix, I simply did not have the stamina to stay up and write late into the night.  Even though I don’t consider myself old, my body just doesn’t want to bounce back like it did just a few short years ago!

However, after spending summer vacation with my focus on my family and after catching up on much need rest in the evenings, it’s time to start engaging with the world of religion, politics, and culture — both inside and outside the Southern Baptist Convention.  So, From Law to Grace will be back on Monday with a new look and a new attitude.  Thank you to all of my readers — those who have read from the beginning since last July and for those who may have just discovered my blog in the last few days.  I truly appreciate everyone who reads and comments, especially those who may not always agree with what I write.  May God grant each of us grace for the journey!  God bless.

      Bro. Dwight,

      Thanks for the encouraging words. Unless someone comments, I never know who is reading. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment this morning. I hope to share more thoughts on the outcome of the Phoenix Convention in the weeks to come. Have a great day and God bless,

    I hope you will continue “double posting” – we miss your submissions over at SBC Voices.

      I will be more than happy to “double post” as well as submit original posts just for SBCVoices. Sorry for my lack of contribution over the last month or so, but I think I am ready to “get back on the horse.” Hope you are doing well. God bless,
