I am leaving after church tomorrow, with my family, to head first to Lynchburg, VA, then to Palm Coast, Florida. I will be spending Christmas with my son who works at Liberty and attends Liberty Theological Seminary. He is the father of the two cutest grandsons in the entire world. We are taking the van to haul the presents.
On Christmas day, we will depart for Palm Coast where my family has a reunion every year – which we’ve not attended in quite some time. Normally, I am at our Christmas Eve service and by the time that’s over, it’s just too hard to make it down to Florida. But this year I turned the Christmas Eve service over to my two associate pastors and we are going to be on the beach instead of in the SUX (that’s our airport designation folks – I kid you not).
A wonderful thing is going to happen at that reunion, something that has not happened for us in a long time. My wife and I will be with our four children and our four grandchildren all at once. Since our eldest moved to Boston, we’ve not had everyone in one place at one time, so this is going to be three days of wonder!
Anyway, I intend to ignore SBC Voices for the most part. I may post an article if the mood strikes. I will almost certainly not engage in discussions or comment moderation. Contributors, fire when ready! All I ask is that you not step on other’s articles. If someone else posts an article, give it at least five hours or so until you post another one. Two articles a day is my goal, but sometimes we’ve only had one.
If you post an article, you are on your own for comment moderation. Try to be fair – like everyone accuses me of NOT being.
People sometimes submit articles to me. I will try to put them up, but no promises.
Again, I will probably be lurking, and perhaps writing something now and again. But I’m am officially going on vacation at noon tomorrow and SBC Voices is not high on my priority list over that time.
ONE MORE THING! The last couple of days have been tumultuous, but what I’d like (barring some kind of huge issue that springs up) is to keep our eyes on the manger until after Christmas. Devotional posts are traffic poison, but that is fine. Christmas thoughts and reflections would be great. Let us focus on Christ and his Incarnation, instead of Calvinism or Cessationism, or even Duck Dynasty.
That is a request, not a command.
Starting the 26th, fire when ready!
