The 2-year hiatus is over. Welcome back, John.

Over the past few weeks I’ve had a nudge to get this blog going again. When I went to post something I realized, “it’s been over 2 years since my last post!” Yikes. Sorry about that.

While there aren’t any fireworks celebrating my return to the blogosphere, I will say that I’m excited to get writing again. I’ve changed a few things to this blog as I do so:

*a new layout. gotta keep with the times.

*added some space for my most recent tweets (I’m on twitter now. lots has changed in 2 years!)

*I changed the subheading/purpose for this blog from “Thoughts about God, music and other spheres of life” to be more specific…“Connecting the dots between pursuance of Christ and life as a musician.” Now that I’m tweeting regularly about anything and everything, I’ve been desiring an outlet where I can specifically share thoughts of mine as I walk out my life as a Christian musician. For those who don’t know me well, my faith is the most integral part of my life. It informs everything I do and it’s what I treasure and love the most (or at least what I want to treasure and love the most – I don’t always keep my priorities straight). I’m no expert at how integrate my faith with my life as a musician. And I’m not a “seasoned vet” at this point either. However, there have been a few things I’ve learned over the years, as well as things that I’m currently learning, that I believe are worth sharing for those that are interested.

*I’ve added some others sites/blogs that I frequent regularly. These now include other musicians that I’m close with who are seeking to live out their faith in Christ through what they do. Each of these friends are amazingly talented at what they do, and they powerfully live out the Gospel as full-time musicians. Certainly not an exhaustive list but check these folks out if you’re interested.

I can’t promise how often I’ll write (I did once and that obviously didn’t turn out well). But what I can promise is that this blog will exist, and I hope it’s a means of encouragement and exhortation for you.

With all that said, let the blogging begin (again).
