  Blogging Pastors Wanted

Mark D. Roberts, whose work I discovered in September, is putting together a list of blogging pastors. He lists the following purposes:

  1. To encourage pastors to blog.

  2. To encourage people to read pastoral blogs.

  3. To help pastors get in touch with other blogging pastors.

  4. To help blogging pastors get out the word about their websites.

Follow the link to view the current list and find out how to add your own blog(s).
 
Comments:
I don't mean to sound rude pastor, but....how do you have time for your ministry when you are spending so much time on all your blog sites and web sites and Internet chat groups? I checked your congregation's statistics....frankly...seems you should be spending all this time on your parish.
 
I work my blogging during office hours and, especially, later at night, don't watch much TV, and type quickly. I also don't sleep too much.

BTW, I'm curious who is wasting time monitoring "all [my] blog sites and web sites and Internet chat groups." My total writing output, per day, probably averages three or four typewritten pages (if anyone types anymore). I read rapidly and post infrequently on most email groups and, if in live chat (usually a couple evenings/week when most people are probably burning brain cells in front of the tube) I'm also working on sermon study, Bible class preparation, or the like and tune in and out depending upon my interest in a particular topic of discussion.

During the week, I preach, lead two or three Bible studies, teach in the day school, visit nursing home residents, shut-ins, and those hospitalized whose hospitalizations I find out about before they are released, do premarital or marriage counseling when needed, and leave myself available for pastoral counseling when asked. I also read voraciously, both online and from computerized books on my PC, as well as from "dead trees."

One thing I don't do is "clock out" after 40 hours.

Hope this answers your question.

Why the Aardvark?
My Raison d’être
The aardvark is a "down & dirty" critter that spends its life rooting yucky things out of their dark haunts and feasting on their carcasses. Nuff said?
