And the band played on…

Posted: 10th January 2009 by ElShaddai Edwards in Faith & Theology, Uncategorized

Just a quick note to confirm that I will be taking a break from blogging for a while. Don’t know if or when I’ll be back, but I’ll leave the lights on for now…

  1. Breaks are good, but please be sure to come back.

  2. Nathan Stitt says:

    I will look forward to your next post, whenever the best time for that eventually arrives. Take care.

  3. John Hobbins says:


    You made so many exquisite contributions to online discussion in these last times. You are a household name!

    Here’s hoping that you will catch your breath and return again.

  4. David Ker says:

    How can I miss you when you won’t go away?

    May your “quit” be like mine.

    It’s not like you have anything better to do in the frozen North.

    Maybe we should blame this on the Kindle.

    I’m not sure I can give a hippo to you if you quit. Maybe I’ll send you a Mickey pez instead.

  5. @Robert, Nathan, John and David: Thank you for the support! I really do appreciate it. I don’t want to say that I’m quitting, but I need to take a break and sort out my goals and motivations for continuing. I fear I’ve been a slave to my selfish interests and that’s not good.

    Another part of me feels like I’ve said all I can say on my current path of focus. I’ve become painfully aware of everything I don’t know and it’s irresponsible of me to write from a position of ignorance (cf. 1 Timothy 1:5-7). I don’t want to be a parrot, mindlessly squawking what I hear or read elsewhere, or a monkey, beating my clanging cymbals to the tune of the organ grinder…

  6. ElShaddai, I understand — but I personally never thought of your postings written out of ignorance, I learn a lot at your site. I’ll leave it at that and keep you in my prayers.

  7. […] It getting busier for me again and I’m not the only one being distracted from blogging. He is Sufficient is now “He is disappeared.” Stan’s apparently fell to addiction. Iyov’s […]

  8. You will be missed, my friend.

  9. Mike Beidler says:


    Know that, if you decide to return, I’ll be waiting to read what you have to say.



  10. Kevin Sam says:

    Hey ElShaddai, I thought maybe you were just going through a phase, and I’m sure you are. I’ve been through those phases and kept blogging though at a slower pace but we all go through these phases. I know you’ll be back. You’re a really great blogger and you’ll be back like gang busters.
