Back in March I made this simple commitment: “to add a post at least weekly between now and the end of May. At that point I will evaluate and make a decision about the future. Of course, some weeks there will be more.”
I’ve done that, mostly.
And I’ve had fun doing this, though at times, it has been a labor, as I knew it would be. There have been some distractions and added responsibilities which have made regularity and faithfulness a bit more difficult. But we have kept at it.
So, now what? Should I keep going? The end of May has come and gone. Is this worth the effort? Feel free to tell me what you think (but be kind).
This blog is for discipleship and conversation. How do I see that?
It is discipleship in that I believe my calling is to use whatever means I can to ‘put’ what I have learned ‘into’ others. Preaching is the primary aspect of that, of course, but if there are other channels that God can use, I am ready to take advantage of them.
And conversation? I enjoy seeing how others respond to ideas. I enjoy the interchange, and a blog allows for some of that. (And some of the interchange we have experienced here has been very helpful.)
So, should I keep going? I am encouraged to keep at this, at least until the end of 2007. But I would like to ask a favor of those who read this. If you think I am offering anything helpful at all, would you spread this around? This is not for my own glory, but for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of his church. If you believe this is worthwhile, let others know about this blog. Show them how to subscribe to the RSS feed. Encourage them to check in frequently.
In the meantime, I’ll try to be faithful, putting stuff up here two or three times/week as my schedule allows. I hope you find at least some of it helpful, or at least interesting.
