Well, after much thought and prayer, I have decided to fire up the old blog again. It has been some time since I last wrote anything to share out here in the "blogosphere." In fact, my last post was back on December 1, 2011, and since it has been so long, and since I found there is another blog that goes by the name of "Confessions Of A Small Church Pastor," I have decided to rename the blog.
I have also decided to expand the scope of this blog. Originally it came from going through the Bible in a year along with the church that I pastor. Then it shifted to some random thoughts on books and Biblical passages from the perspective of a small church pastor. The blog will now be expanded to not only cover books that I read, music that I enjoy and my thoughts on biblical passages, but also politics, movies, and current events, all from a Christian perspective.
In order to help kick off my return to blogging, I am going to give away two CD's and one book. I will list them along with a brief description at the end of the blog. How can you win one of these? Well, it is simple. For every comment that you leave (and it has to be posted here on the blog, not on Facebook or emailed to me), here on the blog you will get your name put in for a drawing. The more times you comment, the better chance you have of winning. If you have never posted a comment on my blog before, let me know in your post and that is worth three entries for the drawing, increasing your chance to win. If you go back through the blog and post a comment on any blog entry before this date (05/28/12), you will get two entries into the drawing.
Finally, the person who posts the most comments from now until June 30th, will be entered into the drawing five extra times.
So let the reading and commenting begin! The entries for comments begins with the blog and runs through the end of June, 2012. I will notify the winners on the blog on July 2nd, and you will have to email me your address in order for me to send you CD or book, which will be mailed out by July 9th, if I have your mailing address by then. The first name drawn will get to pick which one of the prizes they want, the 2nd name drawn will get to pick between the two left, and the last name drawn will be left with whatever prize has not been claimed.
So, exactly what am I giving away...well, here they are: Book: NO COMPROMISE: The Life Story Of Keith Green (original hard cover limited edition).
CD: REBEL TRANSMISSION by Newworldson. This is my newest favorite CD, and it has hardly left the CD player in the car.
