Welcome to “When I Survey . . .”

This is an old blog with a new name in a new place.  If you have been a loyal follower of Retired Pastor Ruminates, welcome and I’m glad you found your way over here.  Everything that was there is now here, and I think you will be able to find things easier.

Why the name change? Several friends and colleagues have lately challenged me on whether there actually is such a thing as a retired pastor, and if there is, am I one of them.

I have given this some thought, and have decided that they are right.  Although I no longer serve a congregation I still have a ministry to offer the church in my thinking and writing and conversations. I am not a retired pastor.  It has taken nearly seven years for me to come to this conclusion, but it feels like the correct one.

Why the move to WordPress?  I think it gives the blog a cleaner look and I have more options about what I can do with it.

If you are new to this blog, welcome.  Have a look around and come back often.  As always this is a free blog without ads.
