When I was asked by our office administrator to write something for the Pastors Blog on our website, I said to myself, “What on earth is a... blog !?!?”
I must admit that I lost my appetite for writing as soon as I sounded out the word “BLOG” to myself. I began to wonder if to “blog” was to prattle on about nothing, or if it were a means by which I could share the boring and intimate details about everyday life with my church family—but then I remembered that’s called “Facebook.” Thus, I did what most people do when they want to find useless information about things they don’t understand, go to “god” Google—notice that it too begins with a capital “G” and then an “o” which spells “Go”! So I went to Google the god of human information/misinformation and I found a great little website called, “What is a Blog: for blogging beginners” and let me tell you I now have the complete knowledge of how to enter the “blogosphere” realm. For instance I learned that a “blog” can be on a separate website or an existing website. I learned that a blog is also called a weblog which consists of entries or posts appearing in reverse chronological order with the most recent entry appearing first (a daily Journal). Blogs may often include features such as comments and links to increase user interactivity.
Cool!! I also learned that the genesis of a “blog” began in the 1990’s where individuals would post information on a daily basis about their lives and opinions (told you it smells like Facebook). I for one do not want to share boring information about my life or lack thereof nor do I want this forum to become merely an intellectual exercise to show you my “vast knowledge” of spiritual matters and have you share yours. I want this page to be encouraging to the Body of Christ. I would like to share with you some of my relational journey with Jesus Christ. I want to share with you some of my daily struggles, concerns, my joys, victory’s, and even some of the questions I have as I attempt to live out my Christian life in a world that is growing more and more hostile to an intolerant attitude of absolute belief. It is my prayer that we will grow strong in Christ together as a Church family and that we will be found faithful until the end.
For the King of Kings, & His Revolution of Love, Pastor Con
