Summer Lovin’ – Has Me a Blast

Summer_ScheduleI’m writing this in late April… just a reminder that I often set posts in the queue well in advance of their publication… It make blog life manageable… As does imagining the week’s blog schedule like newspaper features. (Besides, I’m away when this is being posted – – trying to live up to this picture!)

Through the summer, we are changing the schedule of the features.   Tuesdays and Thursdays we are going to lay off the video postings for youth as well as adult training and let our stock in these refresh and rebuild for the next academic year. (We will, however, carry through these days with the states tour.) Youth ministry content-y stuff will continue on Mondays and Wednesdays and quoteables on Fridays… But, on Saturdays and Sundays we will take off- so no funsies or prayer based on the weekend lectionary. And, we will take a full week’s break over the Fourth of July.

I’m hoping that there might be some special weeks of content during the summer (but as of ten days ago there weren’t developedm so who knows?)  We will hold this pattern until Labor Day when we will reclaim the standard schedule – –  only to revise it around October’s start of the Year of Faith.  (Yea, there really is planning that far out.) The hope is that during times of lower readership (God bless ‘ya, you are all out and about with workcamps, youth conferences, and vacations) we can maintain the blog but also reserve some energies for work related writing and vacation times myself!

My friend Gene will tell me that this is the most boring-est post ever and he’d be right.  But, I am attempting to share that you need a plan for stuff… even your breaks! <image source>
