Updates and News.

I'm sorry guys, the hiatus has been longer than I said it would. I have had so much on my mind lately. So here is the news to share with you. I'm moving. Zion Lutheran Church in Farmington New Mexico has called me to be their pastor and I have accepted this call. So I will be moving to New Mexico.
I think this means I need to change the name of this blog. I'm looking for ideas, so far I'm thinking "Expository Lutheran." It might fit in more with what I do with this blog anyway with the running commentary. We have two books left before I have gone through the entire New Testament, Acts and Romans. Both great and I have really been looking forward to getting to both of these books so this will happen soon. In the meantime if you are reading this and have any great ideas for a blog name let me know. I think I can change the name without necessarily changing the URL. Someone has to have better ideas of what can be done.
Currently I'm planning on making May 18th the last Sunday here in Utah, taking the next Sunday off and being installed at Zion Farmington the next week. I'm really looking forward to getting to know this new congregation and the new adventures Farmington New Mexico will provide. Keep me, my family, First Lutheran and Zion in your prayers. There is so much that needs to be worked through. I forgot how stressful moving can be.

God bless you in your new parish, Pastor. I hope you'll keep blogging. Maybe your new handle could be "Father Shiprock." Or...maybe not.

Good luck to you and your family Pastor Erickson. New Mexico offers beautiful land to explore. :)
