A good post on blogging. Definitely worth your read, and see the comments.
Blogging has me in a kind of quandary. I like it, and I dislike it (love and hate, too strong).
Real community is both what we all need in Jesus, and what the world needs to see from us. It's to be a community not turned in on itself, a missional community, like Jesus welcoming all the outsiders in. Allowing for the fact that conversion normally (and probably always, even if we can't see it) involves a process.
Back to blogging. I guess I'm in kind of a mini-identity crisis, and naturally that involves everything, including my blogging. I'm just not sure what I'm going to do, or how it matters. Having my own blog benefits me in thinking through some thoughts, sharing with others from what God is teaching me, and in having an outlet for writing. If there are any readers, and among them some commenters, that's a bonus. I am thankful for each of you. I do have at least a couple commitments, so I will fulfill them through this blog.
But I'm wondering if I haven't been too taken up with friendships online, to the neglect of friendships in my face to face, everyday world.
But go to the link, above. A most interesting read.
