batch003-039When I began to write my blogs eight years ago I had very little idea about what I was starting. I was not even sure that I would continue to write these posts for any length of time. Since then there have been a number of times when I was ready to give it up. (I think everyone who is honest will admit the same thing, especially about this kind of writing!)

Then Facebook and Twitter developed and I began to use them as well. Now I blog, at least four times a week or more, and I also post on Facebook and Twitter almost daily. While I find this medium to be fraught with dangers of both mind and heart I also find that they can be used for great good. I remain, for now at least, a committed blogger and also a user of the more popular forms of social media.

Yesterday I met with several people in Atlanta who I first “met” via the social media and my Internet blogging/writing. These are unique times when I realize that this expression of my person and mission is important for me and my calling to serve others as a visionary teacher of missional-ecumenism.

I am constantly striving to do all of this better. I ask for your input and prayer. I also value comments and questions.

For some of you there is a feature on my blog site that you may not have noticed. You can choose to “Follow” my blogs and every time a new one is posted you will get an email that gives you a link to the new post. If you like to get email reminders then use this feature and you will be notified by mail each time a new post goes up on this site.

You will also notice that you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter if you like these forms of reading and commenting. I welcome civil, honest and charitable comments whether I agree with them or not. You may actually find your own voice and serve others if you decide to respond.
