Reflections from my 100th blog

Blogging has allowed “us” to “talk” on a semi regular basis. You can hear from others throughout the week instead of simply on Sunday or whenever you see them.

I put “us” in parenthesis because it is primarily built of our local church membership. However, there are a minority of regular readers outside of PSM. There is even a smaller minority of daily searchers. These people find the blog because of words they put in a search engine. The hottest topic I have here on the blog is “James Dean Hair“. Everyday, I get at least 1 or 2 visitors looking for something related to James Dean’s hair. That is fairly comical to me.

I put “talk” in parenthesis because commenting on blogs is a very weak version of talking. Electronic communication (especially email) is brutally misunderstood on a daily basis. Throughout the last 5 months I have deleted several comments. If I have deleted one of your comments, then please don’t be offended. Maybe I misunderstood your comment. Or maybe you misunderstood my post. Most likely you were correct in your writing and it was simply going in a direction that I didn’t want to go in.

However, having said all that, we all love it or we wouldn’t keep coming back. Day after day. By the time you read this we will have had over 23,000 visits to the blog since July. As I write this, we have had 739 comments! That is crazy.

I want the blog to be a safe place for you to think, laugh, meet and get to know other people. Ultimately, you should see Jesus rising through the text. If not, I have failed and wasted all of our time.

So, let “us” keep “talking”.

  1. So, let “us” keep “talking”.

    “OK” 😉

  2. gosh pastor where else can a person go and “really” BE and just let others understand how you feel?? I do feel safe and HEARD here. Thank you all for being there…………it is a Marvelous place to visit with other Christians 🙂 “so let’s keep on “talkin”

  3. Thanks Pastor for this forum to vent. Some days I feel like Zorro with my literary sword ready to defend some arcane concept that seemed correct when I wrote it, only to find later I was in a corner defending useless trivia. Like yesterday, I still have the feeling my passion misplaced my intent, and I never really communicated. Oh well, at least the sparring was invigorating and life has a sparkle to be enjoyed. By the way if you missed this morning’s sunrise, you are meeting the day without God’s message of splendor

  4. i awoke to see one of my favorite persons on TV – Joyce Meyers! now that is one who shoots from the hip “so to speak”
    YES, the sunrise was Miraculous! ……………. God made such a wonderful world with all His Glory — u can see it everywhere!

  5. I do enjoy your blogs Pastor. It is linked under my favorites so that I will be sure to read it each day. Even though I don’t comment on every blog … I read it and the comments and it does make me think … pray … and even begin other conversations. Thank You.

  6. Upon your “reflection”, I offer my thanks, for as I have come so accostomed to, the the ripples of your God inspired words, have curbed my mind to reach a form of cultured insight, as it never has before.

I want to hear from you! Let's hear it....ready....GO!!!
