Hi, this is Chuck Griffin, the originator and primary author of “LifeTalk” on Methodist Life. I want to let you know about some changes that are coming.
I set LifeTalk up as a daily task in the early days of the pandemic, with articles at first appearing on the Luminary UMC website, where I was pastor at the time. Writing for each weekday was a challenge, but doable as so many of my normal pastoral activities were curtailed by Covid-19.
I was blessed a few months ago to have John Grimm take responsibility for writing an item one day each week, lightening the load somewhat. As we come out of the pandemic, however, I need to lighten it a little more. As our churches open up to more normal activities, I am thrilled to say that I am busier with classes, programs, planning meetings, home visits and other pastoral opportunities each week.
I will now personally write two items a week, published on Wednesday and Friday. I’m also changing my focus a little. These two items will be preludes to what I plan to preach on Sundays, and I will be providing a link to videos of those sermons, delivered at Holston View UMC in Weber City, Va.
If any of you would be interested in writing on an available day of the week, just let me know. You can email me at email@example.com.
Have a blessed weekend!
