The Reasons for My Absence

By now at least a few of you out there have begun to wonder what’s become of me lately.

I posted no commentary last weekend, no midweek Bible study either, and to be honest, I won’t be able to post again Sunday either. The reason? My laptop’s main logic board bit the dust this past Saturday night, and now my only computer access is here at my favorite UPS store in Atlanta’s Inman Park neighborhood.

So I’m sending this on this Friday afternoon to let you all know that a second-hand computer and monitor are on their way. Almost all my files are backed up, but they’re in Open Office format, which keeps me from seeing all the files. So I can’t post anything until after this coming Tuesday when the computer arrives, and even then I’ll have to manually restore everything because my thumb drive isn’t big enough to hold the entire contents of the drive. Oh well….

So, I want to thank everyone for their patience with my situation; all 11,000 of you, and I’ll be adding plenty more once I get up and running again.

This brings my to my closing remarks. I have had to empty out this little ministry’s bank account to buy all this stuff. Also, the thing that’s taking me so long to get all this done is the lack of personal transportation. I’ve been riding buses and lite rail since 2006, when my last vehicle died of old age. It wasn’t a big deal, with me being an ardent environmentalist and all. But I’m 63 now, and I’m getting old in a hurry, so my need for personal transportation has become acute as of late. My disability check (I’m a stroke survivor, have PTSD, pacemaker, etc.) isn’t big enough for me to do all this by myself.

If there are some folks who would please give what you can, even as little as a dollar, anything would help. I spent part of my grocery money sourcing this desktop PC and monitor, plus all the funds to pay the Internet and Web hosting bills
(I have 2 websites, pcmatl.org and authorrevpauljbern.com), plus the money for the light bill. Please go to https://www.pcmatl.org/contact-us to make whatever donation you can. This is the first time ever that the very existence of this on-line ministry has been threatened. Please give what you can. Thank you very much…..
