It’s hard to believe it’s already 2012, as it seems we were just celebrating, and fearing, the year 2000 a couple months ago. But, alas, we’re already into the second decade since we all sat around our computers that night, waiting to see if it’d crash.
I considered doing a “year in review” post, but decided against it. Instead, I’ve chosen to do a “year in preview” simply because although plenty happened last year, successes and failures, gaining new friends and saying goodbye to others, I find focusing on the road ahead to be much more productive.
With that, I’d like to thank Rod over at Political Jesus for the inspiration in choosing a motto for 2012.
I aim to misbehave…
I aim to speak out even more on issues that are important to me.
I aim to do more for me, so I can be a better husband and father.
I aim to take more control over my life and the direction it heads.
So far, 2012 is looking to be a busier year.
On January 21st, I’ll be seeing Rachel Held Evans in Phoenix at an event hosted by the Arizona Foundation for Contemporary Theology. I had a chance to meet her last year at Big Tent Christianity and truly enjoyed getting to know her.
Then the following week, I’ll be in California for the Emergent Village Theological Conversation on Process Theology. Looking forward to this one and reconnecting with Tripp Fuller and Bo Sanders.
Not a bad start to misbehavin’ in 2012 considering it’s only January 3.
If you can’t do something smart….do something right.
