One thing I’m trying to do in this blog is let you inside my heart. I would have said inside my brain, but that is a very odd place. Instead, I’m trying to invite you to watch as I’m being shaped.
As a result, I gotta tell you that I’m in one of those odd in-between writing places at this moment. I had a focus for the month of August. I was writing the signs. During June and July I was reporting on our travels and was talking a lot about community. At this moment, I am between travels and am, I think, tired.
The weekend of September 21-23 there will be more traveling as I head to NYC for an event which remembers the Fulton Street Prayer Meeting which started 150 years ago. A guy decided to start praying. Out of that grew a spiritual awakening in NYC. A couple of us are going to the event and to spend some time with a family from Fort Wayne moving to NYC to live Jesus.
I had several ideas about subjects for posting, and will follow up on them. What I am wrestling with, however, is whether I want to commit myself, and you, to a regular schedule of posts. Something like one day a week on signs. One day a week on cross pictures and discussion of the implications of the cross for daily life.
But right now, that seems far more structured than I want to work here.
So I’m thinking and reviewing and reading. And listening. Listening to the hearts of the people around me who are wrestling with real questions themselves. I want to write, not just for the sake of writing, but for the sake of helping people understand. The other week I realized that I use stories to help people understand what they already know about God and each other.
So maybe I’m just waiting for the next story.
Thanks for waiting with me.
