First Day: Holding Steady

As we begin a new month, the word “steady” seems to characterize the way I feel about Oboedire.  A couple of new weekly explorations are getting off the ground (Nouwen and Bunge) and one other one is nearing completion (Benedict).

I hope you’ve noticed that I’ve suspended the regular posts this week and am writing a special series for Holy Week.  The regular posts will resume on April 9th.

“Ministry Musings” is settling into its Thursday slot.  There may be times when I have not been out recently in a ministry setting, so I will not have anything to write about.  On such occasions, I’ll post a statement or quotation from someone, using the “Gleanings” category.

Readership is also “steady” this past month.  We are slowing growing a subscription base, but in addition to that, our daily visitors are remaining essentially the same.

“Steady” times, quiet times, stable times, are good.  We need them in our souls.  We probably need them on blog sites too.

I think the only thing I’ll remind you about is that the main Oboedire site contains a number of icons (at the top of the Home page) that describe various aspects of the ministry.  If you subscribe to the posts and/or if you just l0g in and read the current entry, you may forget to check those.  Just a reminder that they are there for you.

Thanks for remaining part of the Oboedire family.  And thanks for telling others about it, as well as passing on postings that you think those in your social networks would be blessed by reading.

Blessings!   Steve
