Would it work? Who would read it? What’s the point? Can we really keep it updated? Who cares what we think? Is there something more productive we could be doing with our time?
Those were all questions we asked as we researched the creation of a blog and as we fumbled our way through creating what you now read. Yes, a blog. Honestly, we don’t know what this will look like in a few weeks or even a few days. While we completely recognize that there are thousands of blogs, we will attempt to do something very specific. The sole purpose of this blog is to help us (all of us) grow in our understanding of how to be an intentional disciple of Jesus Christ. Ideally, each post, each video, each picture and quote will further clarify Christ’s call and how we should respond. As we grow in our own understanding of the high call of Christian discipleship, we want to share those insights and truths with you.
We live in a world that desperately needs to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ; the full gospel, not just the parts that we like or seem comfortable. It is a daunting task, but one made easier when we accept the profound grace, wisdom, and power that the God offers us through the Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the invitation to grow in lasting relationship with Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit.
This blog will not be authored by just one person, but instead a group effort. We want to encourage you the reader to respond to the posts, challenge what has been said, and provide your own insights.
A blog? Yep, we’re doing it and we are excited to see where the Lord takes us….
