Top 6 Reasons I haven't blogged in 6 months Sunday, December 21, 2008 |

1. Karis.  My last blog post was June 18th.  Our 2nd daughter (and 3rd child in less than 4 years), Karis, was born on June 23rd.  You do the math.  Although Kimberly, my wonderful wife, had made the transition to 2 kids, now that she was consumed with Karis, it was now my turn to learn what it's like to have to take care of 2 children under the age of 4.

2. For the City - our Fall Vision Series at The Austin Stone Community Church.  On top of launching over 300 missional communities, we raised close to $11 million to build, among other things, a non-profit center in the poorest neighborhood in Austin.

3. Designed, launched, facilitated and taught, with the help of Allen and Joey, Project 297, a pilot training platform for urban missionaries, global missionaries, and church planters.  We currently have 27 guinea pigs... ahhh, I mean, participants.

4.  Hired 4 new staff - 2 church planting residents, a church planting intern and a ministry assistant.

5.  Discovered Twitter.  You can follow me at http://twitter.com/_Stew_

6.  Got an iPhone.  Whatever you think is next level, the iPhone is 5 levels above that.  Trust me.
