Our family talks a lot at meals. Sometimes we even talk to each other.
I like to watch and listen as the conversation jumps from one topic to another and as three conversations happen all at once. One of my girls sometimes carries on a conversation with herself.
Occasionally I attempt to get a word in. My comment or story often has nothing to do with the current subject(s). I just want to say what’s on my mind. So if, for example, I want to share our puppy’s latest entertaining antic, I’ll interject, “Speaking of the dog…” Someone will almost always observe, “We weren’t talking about the dog,” which is my cue to point out, “We are now!” and tell my Hobo story.
In a similar way, I want to get a word in and share my stories – about God. What I post here will be my way to join (interrupt) the conversation and convey what is on my mind about the magnificence of God, the wonders of Jesus Christ, His gifts to us, and our life in Him.
The primary discussion circle is our church family, but others are welcome. The content will be directly related to the Old and New Testament Scriptures, and usually associated with texts I am currently preaching. It will occasionally include other ideas and issues catching my attention or gripping my heart. There will be links and resources that will help you further explore and contemplate what we talk about in Sunday’s sermons. Various thought, discussion, and application facilitators will be added as we develop the site.
If you want to join the conversation, comments are welcome. Your interaction with others is a form of fellowship. Enjoy sharing the blessings of the Word with one another. All of the biblical precepts for constructive and gracious communication apply. I may jump in occasionally.
So, “blah, blah, blah… yada, yada, yada… didja hear… didja know… what’s up with that… type… text… talk… twitter…”
(Ahem) Speaking of God…
“We weren’t talking about God.”
We are now!
