Just keep swimming

My heir, Asher LeRoy Park was born on November 20 at 2.19pm. As you can imagine, Asher’s arrival has severely curtailed blogging time (well, he and Skyrim). In addition, I’ve had some other writing projects that have had to take priority over the blog.

You can expect regular blogging to return sometime shortly after the holidays. I’ve lots of ideas for posts, but we’re still finding equilibrium, which means that-hopefully-I’ll have a schedule after the holidays that will allow for more writing time. See you then.



With a middle school retreat last weekend and various other life issues intruding on my time to blog, posts have been a bit sparse (which is to say, non-existent) over the past week. You can look forward to more regular posts beginning next week.

In the meantime, why don’t you check out this post from about a week ago over at Paul’s blog. Or go read this article on sticky faith at Immerse Journal. Then continue by perusing the rest of the Immerse website.


So, I’ve updated the About Me section, for those of you who are just dying to read a boring wall of text about yours truly. I’m not promising that this means regular updates. But, I’m on vacation and there is something cathartic about looking back over the past several years and trying to distill who you are as an individual into a few paragraphs.

Two Years

It has been two years since I blogged here, and nearly a year since I blogged over at The Floppy Hat.

A great deal has happened since then. I now hold an MA in Biblical Languages and an MA in Old Testament, having graduated from Gordon-Conwell in May 2010. I am currently the Director of Youth Ministries at Gaithersburg Presbyterian Church in Gaithersburg, MD. Certainly an odd assignment for a twenty-something with two Masters degrees in biblical studies. Mandy and I are also expecting our first child in November.

It has been a busy two years. I tentatively expect that blogging here at Random Bloggings is going to pick back up in the coming months. I feel a bit like I have things to say, and a blog feels like the most readily available place to say them. Look for more information in the coming weeks.
