Learning New Skills
Last night I published my first web site! No applause please. I did it because I live in an online, multimedia, in-the-moment world, and I want to stay fluent in the language. I still value face to face relationships, live experiences, things that take time, and experiential living too. But, I know that I can't freely share one meaningfully, without understanding something about the other.
The bible and history have taught me a lot about this adventure. I remember how the apostle Paul said he was willing to become all things to all people so he could reach some. I get that. That's why I began a web site, I have a face book page, I text, and I do many things that I never dreamed of, so I can be connected to other people's lives in meaningful ways.
You see I'm on a mission to Live Love in real and meaningful ways. Why? Because I follow Jesus. Why? Because it's the most comprehensive, meaningful, effective way to live that I've found. And if I want to Live Love I'll have to use avenues that are important to others, as well as my own favorites.
Well, next on my list is to check out the top of the music charts this week and maybe give a tweet!
FYI -- I'm currently sharing a series called "On A Mission." (Feb 5,12,19) If you'd like to listen to a little bit here's the podcast link.
