Hello. I'm back.

Well that was a long hiatus from blogging.  Lots of stuff going on here (all good thankfully!)  Kids are out of school now though, two are at summer camp and now I've got some free time to get back here.

When we last met I had done some posting on repentance.  Hope you found it was for me at least.  Sometimes I think this blog is really more for me than anything else. It helps me to think out loud and connect those proverbial dots. I'm hoping that if I post something really wacky that I'll get a comment from someone telling me that I've officially lost my mind.  I have had some people disagree with me on some stuff (privately not via the comment section).  Nothing huge like I'm spreading heresy or anything but more along the lines that I'm not hardcore Orthodox enough.  That's a fair assessment I think.  Oh well...let us move onward.

So where to start up again?  Yesterday, a good friend of mine suggested I do list of Orthodox Christian books that I like and maybe a little review of them.  I manage my parish's bookstore and am familiar with many titles so I'll give it a shot.  I was going to do a ranking but I have decided that can't rank them because I love many of them for different reasons.  Additionally, we are in the process of moving and most of my books are in a storage facility that is probably close to 150° F. Call me crazy, but I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to venture in there at this time.  I will start with the books that I either just purchased or I can borrow from our parish's library that I've already read.

Let me do some rummaging around and see what I can come up with.  See you in a day or so.
