One year ago today I wrote my first blog post ever, in preparation for a trip to Israel. I wanted to be able to share my pictures and reflections with friends and family back home. On January 4 I flew out of New York and on January 5 arrived in Tel Aviv, and then Jerusalem.
Since that day, 146 posts in 2010; this is #2 in 2011. This blog has changed since I returned; but I still find that I'm trying to find my "blog voice." It's not that different from my everyday voice, I hope; but what I mean is that I am still trying to figure out what and when to post. Sometimes edited sermons, sometimes mid-week commemorations from the communion of saints, sometimes responses to the day's headlines.
A new year begins: not knowing what it may bring, I will try to stay open, to pay attention, to be astonished. And then, try to find words to tell about it.
