Well, again with the silence.
Apparently I skipped all of November.
Time to remedy that. Time to start posting stuff here again.
I’ll start with a recap of the past year or so, with the intention of showing you why it’s been a quiet year here on truetech.org.
[Six paragraphs have been deleted here, because there is simply too much malice in the world. I never thought I’d need an editorial policy for my own personal site, but maybe it’s time to think about that. Anyway, those six paragraphs are gone now. -Brad]
And I don’t remember if I wrote about this or not, but I’ve also accepted the role of Worship Leader at our church. Each week, I pick out the music, coordinate the musicians, run rehearsal, prepare the computer slides, and lead the service. It’s a lot of work, but I love it and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. 2004 was kind of a dark year for me, with Westwood closing down at the very start of the year. We spent most of 2004 searching for a church where we felt like we fit. NewSong Fellowship Church West ended being that church. Before long, I was asked to lead worship one Sunday morning. Shortly thereafter, I was leading every other week. Next thing I knew, it was every week. Have I mentioned that I love it? It’s like it’s in my blood or something. But it took some time to get up to speed, which is another reason I haven’t been able to devote as much time to this site as I’d like.
Combine all of that with the usual work schedule, the demands of family life, and the ongoing battle against the grubs for control of my yard, and it’s been a busy year.
