The last week

Well then.

It's just about over. Time for something new to begin.

I'm not going to go all contemplative in the blog today, however. I'll post something much more reflective sometime over the next few days. (I'm attending an all day retreat focusing on Contemplative Youth Ministry today -- finishing up sabbatical quietly.)

But this entry simply looks over the last 6 weeks and what I've been doing.
There's a pretty extensive article about my sabbatical in the Daily Herald today. (Yesterday there was one in the Wheaton Sun.)

Here's what I've been up to:

Web Articles for i.ucc.org

Web work

Video Documentary (still in process)

Training and Learning

Book I finally finished reading

There are a few more things -- like movies I saw and TV I watched and some things that are more significant than that -- but you get the idea. If you want to find the rest you can spend a whole lot of time looking at the past 6 weeks of blog entries!

It's been wonderful!

It's been an interesting Sabblogical time. Especially liked the Daily Herald article. And the documentary film! We here at Intron Films couldn't have done any better. Well done!

Hope you can find time to keep the blog going.

Thanks, Peter! I've gotten into a pretty regular blog habit -- I think I'll keep posting as long as my brain allows -
