Admittedly, I’ve not done a great job of updating the blog.  Would you guys believe me if I said I’d lost my password and with it access to said blog?

Those of you who know me well are debating now:  “Well… Brett CAN be pretty disorganized.  BUUUT… he’s also the kind of guy who might get busy with other things and just fail to maintain a blog.”

And now my feelings are hurt because your arguments in both directions were formulated in negative ways.  Why did not even one of you argue, “You know… Brett is so extremely organized and conscientious he probably has a prioritized list of all the important tasks he needs to accomplish between now and retirement, and writing on his blog just didn’t make the cut…

Until today.”

I’ll cut to the chase: I’m not sure what will become of the blog.  I may end up posting on it occasionally (I’d like to do that), though it won’t likely be a top priority for me over the next few years.

I can tell you, though, that Christie and I are publishing our first email newsletter this week.  For those of you who have been with us since the beginning, you may remember our email work reports.  That’s NOT what this will be.  We didn’t feel our work reports necessarily got a good response (a lot of people probably were unable to read to the end).

Our newsletter will likely go out once every month or two and consist of:

  • Primarily one article or story we feel is important to our lives, work, or ministry.
  • A few short paragraphs about other aspects of our life and work here.
  • Some photos.
  • And prayer requests.

We hope the newsletter will be a good blend of interesting and informative.

You can sign up to receive the Harrisons in Geita newsletter by following this link.  Feel free to forward the link to others.  Blessings!

    Glad to hear what’s going on!

  2. Hi James, I’d like to invite you to join the new “Church of Christ at Blogs and Bloggers” group on Facebook.
    Its goal is a community to post, read, and discuss blog posts and other articles relevant to the Churches of Christ, conservative or progressive, …. All are welcome.
    Of particular interest to bloggers is that bloggers in the group are asked to comment substantively on other bloggers’ posts so all can receive substantive feedback.
    Here is a link to the group:
    If the link does not work, search on Facebook for Church of Christ at Blogs and Bloggers.
    I hope you will join!
    Best regards,
    Steve Gardner (blogger at

    • Thanks for the invite, Steve. I’m not on Facebook so won’t be able to take you up on your offer. But I hope the best for the group. Sounds like a great idea!

      • Thanks much. I enjoy Facebook, but I also recognize that it can be a serious time drain, so I don’t blame you for not being on it! If you ever join, you are welcome to join our fledgling group. Best regards, Steve

  3. Hey James! This is Bill Grandi! I was looking back at some old posts due to researching the bike wreck and came across a comment you made so decided to see if your blog was still alive and how you were doing. Looks like okay. Still running barefoot? I’m still riding although I car tried to stop that last November.

    • Hi Bill, I’m still around. But not writing on the blog much anymore. Good to hear from you — and that you survived your recent run-in with a vehicle. I’m not running barefoot anymore, but I’m still in fairly minimal shoes if that counts….
