Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

Spring Break

Leave It Behind will be quiet over the next few weeks. I'm going to take a break from blogging and focus on Ben's last few weeks of elementary school, our annual father/son trip, summer planning, and some surprises for Lori. There is also a lot to learn, a few exciting possibilities to explore, and an idea for a second book I need to flesh out.

When I return, the blog will likely head in a slightly different direction. After three years of blogging and investing nearly two years in The Blogging Church, I'm beginning to feel like a band that's been touring for months supporting their latest album - it's time for some new songs.

As I look forward to the next chapter, I thought I'd share a piece over the next few days that I wrote recently for Relevant Leader. When they asked me to write an article about blogging in the church a few months ago, I was confidant I had said everything I wanted to say about the subject.  but it turned out I had two thousand more words in me. In many ways, it feels like the epilogue to the book.
