Why I finally signed up
Okay, so I've finally decided it was time to start a blog which is something I said I would never do. When blogging first began to grow in popularity I thought it was simply an egotistical exercise, an expression of one's own inflated sense of self-importance. "How arrogant" I thought, "to think that people are that interested in your 2 cents." But then I began to read these blogs and saw the value they had. That's right, I've always been a little slow on the uptake. But I saw that it was a great way to connect to like minded people-and to meet people who don't share your particular viewpoints. More importantly, I saw that it's a great way for a pastor to stay in touch with his people and to encourage them through the week. So here I am, feet firmly planted in the 21st century-though in reality, I suppose blogging is so last century. I'll be sharing my thoughts, views, rantings, ravings, etc. Come have a look sometime. If I say something you like, let me know. If I say something you don't like, let me know. If I say something that makes you angry, let me know and we'll talk about it. You know, no big whoop. Mostly, I hope I'll say something that encourages you, that lifts you up a bit; and above all, I hope that something I say will adorn the doctrine of God my savior.
