Welcome to my blog. Just by reading that first short sentence, you are helping me more than you can possibly know. You see, I begin this blog in hope of holding myself accountable in my recovery. A life of alcoholism is often lived in isolation. By contrast, I hope to live recovery in the comparatively densely populated spaces of AA rooms and cyberspace. Sharing keeps me honest and your apparent willingness to participate in this endeavor (evidenced by your having read this deep into the first paragraph) encourages me to keep at it. Thank you.
My struggle with my God and my faith will undoubtedly be woven throughout these posts. I may no longer be a parish pastor in the literal sense, but Scripture does still speak to me and God is undeniably a key player in the unfolding of the rest of my life. We can both expect She will make her presence known in my writing. Also, as gods go, mine has a keen sense of humor, so we will inevitably be sharing some belly laughs along the way as well.
Now, I am brand new at this blogging thing, so this page will most probably morph into many things before settling on its identity. I am also relatively new to recovery and know better than to even try to project what I might feel and think and say tomorrow, let alone six months or six years from now. So you and I are both in for some surprises along the way. We will, however, never know what this blog holds in store unless I begin. And so I have. Welcome.
