I'm not ignoring y'all and I do have a number of things to blog but first i have to write a book proposal.
It's simple. All I have to do is write a 100 -125 page book summing up the most important stuff we've learned over the past 11 1/2 years and the implications for pastoral ministry and leadership at all levels, the new evangelization, the formation of the laity, the discernment of charisms and vocations, and the fulfillment of the Church's secular mission to heal and transform the culture. No worries.
That's one of the main reasons that I am going to be home a good deal more over the next six months. That and re-writing interviewer training, revising Making Disciples yet again, and developing a graduate level course on the theology of the laity for Sacred Heart Seminary starting the day after Memorial Day.
Don't worry. The tempter will tempt me and I will blog. Always more fun than working!
But I could really use your prayers for the book. I am a slow and tortured writer - and even though I will be drawing upon the writing charism of my old friend, Mark Shea to help break my writer's block, it's still going to take a lot of focused effort.
Focus? What's that? Its much less demanding to run in panicked circles!
