The Last Post on Any Day a Beautiful Change

For real.

I'm closing up shop... this shop, anyway.

After more than a decade of blogging here at - otherwise known as any day a beautiful change - I'm ready to close this space. I am not entirely sure if/when I will delete this site.

Why now? I get more traffic than ever, after all.

Why now? I love this space and can't even begin to articulate how much it has meant to me.

When it comes down to it, this blog did exactly what it was supposed to do: it turned me into a writer. It's been a long time since I've been an especially active blogger, and it seems like time to acknowledge that by turning the lights out on this space. It feels more than a little neglected.

I've contributed to three books since the blog-eponymously titled Any Day a Beautiful Change, and I'm contracted to write two more.

It's time to retire as a blogger. It's time to just be me, the writing pastor.
Don't despair, avid fans and longtime lurkers. I have imported all of the archives to my site. I will continue to post on the blog platform there - occasionally new original posts, more often links to writing elsewhere.

So really, it won't be that different. But it won't be any day a beautiful change. 

And oh, how many beautiful changes there have been.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this. I mean it.
