A friend recently asked on Facebook whether "Barebones" was the name of a seventeenth-century Baptist preacher or a description of the recent content on this blog. The simple fact is that, although the family and I are doing pretty well and fall well within the tolerances that define "normal" reactions to this sort of thing, I've just had very little heart for blogging since the accident. I'm preaching; I'm ministering to people; I'm giving leadership to the church—I'm heading into a service right this very minute. But after being spent on those things, there just isn't enough passion left over to blog for right now. I've interacted in a couple of comment conversations, but that's been all that I've had the heart to muster lately.
Important opportunities stand before us as Southern Baptists. I've nowhere nearly run out of things to say. I'm just not quite back to doing this blogging business.
So, more barebones on Barebones for a while, at least.
