A Gracious Separation

Every other Friday, I blog at the Presbyterian Leader. Please go to the link to read my post and the wonderful work of my colleagues: http://blog.thepresbyterianleader.com/2012/05/gracious-separation.html


About Andrew Taylor-Troutman

I am a pastor and a preacher, a writer, a husband and a father. My professional and personal lives are deeply involved with story-telling: stories that are silly and poignant or profound and commonplace. Stories that are tear-jerkers and belly-shakers. Stories about my son, Sam, and the congregation I serve, New Dublin Presbyterian Church. Each in its own way, these personal narratives shed light on the great story that God is writing with humankind and all of creation.

    Hey friend,

    Sorry your first post was lost. My best advice is to find a subject that you enjoy. Writing every other day or so is a big committment, and it is much easier if you are discussing something that you love. Trust that your audience will find you.

    Also, I recommend setting aside a little time everyday to write. I am a morning person, so I typically sit down at my computer for an hour or so with a cup of coffee. Even if you don’t feel inspired, try writing a little anyway. Sometimes the wheels were start turning and you’ll take off down a road you didn’t even expect.

    Hope this helps! Best of luck to you. Let me know when your blog is up and running. I’d love to read your work.

    naturally like your web site but you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I’ll surely come back again.

      Hey friend,

      I appreciate the feedback. I agree that mistakes can be distracting. I will look back over my writing and try to correct the spelling errors.

      Thanks again for your patience,
