Friday Ramblings

Once again I use up my allotment of “ramblings” before I would like to, but I have been so busy doing nothing today that I really haven’t had time to sit down and write anything intelligent. Yesterday was a great day for writing as I got well into an article that I am really excited about. With any kind of luck I should have it finished and posted in the next day or two. But since it is a long weekend I may just continue my laziness and put it off until next week.

One of the people who posts quite a bit in the forums here in Challies Dot Com but does not have her own blog is about to remedy that. I am happy to say that I should shortly have a new link for my list of favorite sites as soon as she is ready to go. I am have little doubt that her site will soon become one of my favorites (how is that for pressure)!

I have just about all the entries in for the first ever BlogSwap which will take place tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if it turns out to be fun and worthwhile or just a big ol’ waste of time.

I have nothing more to say. This long weekend has allowed me to shut my brain off entirely and my ability to think has been vastly diminished. So enjoy your weekends and check in tomorrow for a BlogSwap.

  • Leadership

    We Need Qualified Leadership

    A few days ago I happened upon the page of an especially mega-sized megachurch. The church is about to undergo a leadership transition from an older man to a younger one and a page on the site lays out the process through which this new pastor was chosen. I read with a morbid kind of…
