The Musings of An Ordinary Pastor

Another re-post from over 4 years ago. I post it again as THE CAPRANICA re-launches its regularity as a reminder of what this blog is about. I am an ordinary pastor. That is, I know myself well enough and I have been around enough extraordinary pastors to be well aware of how ordinary I am. The content, regularity, and writing style found here at THE CAPRANICA all document the degree of my ordinariness. Actually, I enjoy being...

A Re-Post for a Sort of Re-Launch

For many months now I’ve been wanting to take up contributing to my neglected blog presence. As the mayhem begins again, I start with a re-post (from over 4 years ago) of an article on why an ordinary pastor, like me, should regularly blog. Wouldn’t blogging be persona non grata in the life of the truly ordinary pastor? Maybe a few years ago, but no longer. I would suspect that the majority of pastors blogging today are...

The Cap is Back!

The Capranica has successfully moved. Thanks to the help and expertise of one excellent, Chad Martin (who you should look at using for professional photography!), we are now located at a domain name all our own. What has changed? Umm, well, not much really. I hope to be posting more (although I’m on vacation right now and really should be relaxing and not blogging ““ just ask Kel). The entire site with all the thrilling...

The Capranica is Headed to a New Land

The Capranica has been hosted at its present address for about three years now.  In the next week, I’ll be moving the blog to its own domain address:  thecapranica.com. That means that we’ll be suspending activity around here for a few days.  You’ll see an update here once the move is...

Blogging and The Ordinary Pastor

Wouldn’t blogging be persona non grata in the life of the truly ordinary pastor? Maybe a few years ago, but no longer. I would suspect that the majority of pastors blogging today are among the ordinary variety. It helps that more than 99% of the pastors in our country are ordinarily flavored, so you would expect that the same percentage of pastors blogging will be ordinary pastors. With that in mind, why should a pastor blog? I...

What Then Shall We Post?

What would you want to see more of on THE CAPRANICA?  We’re making a few plans around here to begin rounds of more regular posting.  But I thought I would first ask my audience of 3 to give me some suggestions of what you would like to see. See the poll on the Home Page and give me some of  your feedback.  I’d love to know (I...

The Musings of An Ordinary Pastor

I am an ordinary pastor. That is, I know myself well enough and I have been around enough extraordinary pastors to be well aware of how ordinary I am. The content, regularity, and writing style found here at THE CAPRANICA all document the degree of my ordinariness. Actually, I enjoy being ordinary. Obscurity is often bliss. Normality, more than often, is a blessing. The front-lines of the ordinary contain enough excitement, challenge,...

The Optimized CAP

I’ve been plotting on THE CAPRANICA. I have a host of ideas and issues I would like to blog about, but have wanted to give the blog a bit of a lift before wading into them. So, last weekend and this I’ve been tweaking (prolly will keep the tweaking up for a few more weekends). The two new items are a new comment thread plugin and a plugin that optimizes THE CAP for the iPhone (or iPod Touch). Intense Debate is the...
