I happen to know that Dave is back home in Iowa at this very moment as I am composing this post because I saw it on Facebook. I for one am glad to see him back in the states and ready (I hope) to resume his regular place as editor in chief of our crazy corner of the blogosphere. It is a relief to be close to being relieved of duty once again. I frankly don’t know how Dave manages to do all that he does for this blog on a daily and weekly basis. I imagine that I will wander around in the background once again trying to remain inconspicuous and occasionally cleaning out the spam comments from the spam queue or something.
I enjoy many of the discussions and interactions that we are able to have here at SBC Voices. I think it gives us a unique opportunity to talk to folks from all over the US and even the world about the things that affect our lives as Southern Baptists, which is why I still keep coming back. I have developed new friendships and been challenged and encouraged time and time again through this little slice of SBC electronic life. And I am glad that Dave trusts me enough to let me “go with my gut” even knowing that my gut may sometimes cause us all indigestion. But when I mess up , I pray that I can learn from my mistakes and take the time to fix what I can. Kind of like our old pal Barney Fife.
