I was once a very organized person… You might doubt that if you look back at the date of the last blog I posted here! Christmas Eve? What have I been doing since December 24th!
It seems I have 1) forgotten to put updating this website on my calendar, 2) not bothered to check back here even when I got a notice from WordPress that someone recently followed this site, and 3) haven’t had a minute to stop to think about how much I really like being connected to all of you this way!
It’s been a busy season – and promises to continue to be that. I’m preaching tomorrow on our human need for Light in the Midst of February. Then in the next few days I’ll be leading a faculty webinar on Valuing Diversity – and giving a presentation to college administration about using smart classroom technology. All three are things that I just love to do: preach, teach, and use technology!
I’ve also been participating in some webinars about online courses. One of the things that has surprised me is how many of the “experts” have been doing it for such a short amount of time. They talk about 3 years or 5 years as if that were a lifetime – when I’ve been creating and leading online workshops and courses with BeADisciple for, I think, eight years!
Which leads me back to my three favorite things: I have a session of the Spiritual Gifts course for Lay Servants and Lay Speakers opening on Monday morning. While I don’t preach to participants there, at least not very much, the teaching and technology are fully present!
What is it that you love to do? Do you get so busy doing it that you forget things like updating a website – or even the people you really love being connected with? If so, I invite you to join me in grabbing a cup of tea, taking a little break, and breathing deeply. Who knows what fun things might be waiting for all of us in the next few days!
