So here we go…my official entrance into the world of blogging. For me, it is a chance to write briefly and regularly about the things that happen and the insights that come. For you, it is a chance to listen in, reflect, and hopefully connect. For God, it is a chance to listen to him in the mundane and ordinary. For I believe he has been trying to speak to us our whole lives. Our trouble is not so much his silence. Our trouble is our own deafness.
This blog begins a new adventure for me…to put words to how God is working in me. For those that hear me teach on a regular basis, it will be more of the type of thing you know from me, but hopefully fresher. For those of you that do not know me, it will be an opportunity to listen in on my listening. And for both groups, it will be a way to give me feedback, for I love to hear what you are hearing.
Finally, I have entitled this blog Landmarks. Learning to walk with God for me has felt so much like glimpsing landmarks in the distance. It’s like the mountain top in the image above. You see where you need to go, even though you’re not sure how you are going to get there nor what it’s going to be like along the way. The life of faith is like this, always a journey, always into the unknown. It feels risky. It feels exhilarating. That’s where I am most alive as a man. I hope you will come with me.
Onward and upward…
