Ok ... I know I've said it a few times this year, but I'm going to try to post things here. I've already got some ideas forming in my head, however, it's quite difficult, especially after being away for so long, to get back into the swing of things.
Over at my xanga account I've been pretty active! I've done a 30 day exercise, participated with BEDA (with the exception of Sundays) and now that August is winding down I'm in the middle of one of those 10 day exercises. Basically, the blogging juices are running.
Now, for Revelife, my initial idea was to post things that I found particularly insightful from scripture/church/every day life. I tried to do something every day, however, that was a bit taxing. For some reason, keeping this up, and xanga and my other SoMe projects was becoming more a task than a hobby. So, I've decided that I want to post thoughts/insights, however, I don't want to post with a particular audience in mind, I just want to share with you what I've seen and perhaps we can start the conversation from there. I DO want to keep my Xanga blog updated so I'll try to see if I can find a balance between the two =)
Dear Revelife, I have been really bad last year, I stopped blogging, I stopped showing up, but I'm alive and well and I am back ... kinda. =)
You see Revelife, I have been thinking a lot about community and how it works and while I love the idea of a Christian blogging community, it really scares me that a lot of people who are in this community have either a watered down of a completely wrong version of what Christianity is and who Christ is.
But Revelife, it also made me think that if the Christian community is like that then we really need some work, some serious work, so that we are truly a light to the world. I mean, what use is salt if it has lost its savour, it's good for nothing. Nothing!? Yes, nothing ... and that is sad.
So, while I cannot say that my time away was spent on planning ways to reach out to the Christians and to help educate those seeking ... while I cannot say that I've been thinking of elaborate schemes for outreach ... I can tell you that I am very curious about the community now and would like to read the thoughts of the people who I've met on here and to form those bonds again.
