I am no stranger to blogging, but I ring in the new year with a enw blogging resolution. I want to just blog, to share my life, stories, and thoughts with friends and family. Life is a season of change for me, in these recent years: I graduated seminary with an intent to do a Ph.D., I’ve traveled and seen a good bit of the U.S. that I hadn’t seen, met many fantastic new folks, fell in love, became engaged to be married, felt a sense of calling to ministry, and now anticipate the possibility of training at a Divinity School….and…not small “and”…I live in Alaska. How did I wind up here? Well, this blog is my attempt to keep everyone (friends, family, and anyone who wishes to eavesdrop) up to speed on the life and times of Jon Erdman. In the process, hopefully I will also get myself up to speed on what’s been happening in my life.
My original blog, The Theos Project, is still a project-in-process; but it is my theoretical blog, the space where I can get theological and technical. This blog is the space for friends and family, for me to write of my comings and goings, of hikes in AK, of work, of fishing, and of all the odd kinds of trivial life things that happen when you least expect them. I want to take 2011 as my year of blogging. I’ll commit to it, to at least two or three posts a week, and we’ll see how it all goes. So, here’s to the new year, of sweating the small stuff.
