Hi Mike,

I have been meaning to write this e-mail for awhile, but somehow it just never happened...

I am not sure if you remember me or not, but we met last year at one of the YS conferences in Sacramento.

I just wanted to check in with you because I noticed you weren't writing on your blog for awhile. I am not sure what your reasons were for taking a break, nor do I need to know, but I just wanted to let you know how much I do appreciate your posts. Your blog has introduced me to new resources, new ways of thinking, and just an all round sense of someone older & more experienced then me who is trying to live and wrestle with how to do ministry well.

With the struggling economy it has become increasingly more difficult to travel for large conferences and other training events, which has made me appreciate your weekly thoughts, even if they are just glimpses into various things going on in your life, even more.

Thanks again for your willingness to share your wisdom, knowledge, and journey.

Hey Shawn,

Thanks so much for taking the time to share this with me. It really means a lot. It also encourages me to keep posting. I fondly remember you. I hope our paths cross again in the days, months or years ahead.

I just wanted to say that I greatly appreciated this blog post. Thank you for capturing the notes and sharing them. I am definitely going to listen to Dr. Read Schuchardt's lecture to hear more of what he had to say.

I just ordered your book (presence centered youth ministry...) and I can't wait to read it.

I enjoy your writing style and your honesty. I'll definitely be checking back for future updates. Thanks man!
