Get free email updates as I write new articles:… It’s Alive. It’s ALIVE!!! Screenshot

Well, the new design is live, anyway. I’m working frantically on the editorial calendar. And we’re happily accepting contributions from writers. I’m super excited! It looks sweet. Now it’s a matter of re-vamping the rest of the site to offer elearning, a forum, and curation of some great content from the pastoral blogosphere.

I’d love your feedback on the new look and feel! (And let me clarify – I didn’t DO the design or development – I’m the content and community guy. We have an awesome creative team here!)

On a related note, I’m assuming a new responsibility at Saddleback and will be serving as a Pastor to the correspondence team. We receive about 90,000 emails per year, plus phone calls, letters, and even an occasional delivery of flowers… but rarely candy, for some reason.

I’ll get to work with the awesome team of people who respond or redirect all of that correspondence. Fun stuff!
