A Post

Having been called out by my mom to start blogging again, I must respond. I really want to blog regularly, believe me. My dilemma is not that I have too little material, but too much. I have sensed that the content of this blog is changing, but into what I don’t know. I want it to be less “religious.” Not less spiritual, less inspirational, or less action-inducing, but less “religious.” As I persist within a post-religious culture, I become less and less satisfied with circular conversations among “insiders,” instead concerned with how those who feel far from God can feel his presence and the joy that accompanies it.

This is partly why I decided to make this a gardening blog this summer, though I haven’t done a very good job of keeping that up either.

So, I ask, what should this blog be? I’ve been doing it for about 4 years now, and I feel it changing. It’s no longer the sounding board for a deconstructionist and method-happy grad. student, a venue for connection with other people of faith during a dry season relationally, or a creative outlet for a frustrated wannabe writer.

So what is it? Does it matter? Should I hang it up and just write for multi-contributor blogs like God’s Politics and Jesus Manifesto? I really covet your opinion/s.
