Today marks the first birthday of this blog. The first post appeared right here on March 23, 2013. Since then, we have gone through a few design changes. But the topic and focus on the intersections of and thought about the church, leadership, and the neighbor have remained consistent. I believe we have covered a wide range of topics and asked important questions as we have wrestled together. I am grateful and thankful for all of you who have engaged in the on-going conversation in some way, and who continue to do so. I am also grateful and thankful for all of you who are new or are just recently joining the conversation.
I have no idea what lies ahead in the next year, but I am sure that this blog will continue to wrestle with these questions and be a place of thought, reflection, and conversation. The blog has been a great joy for me, and its been a vehicle for me to wrestle on and through while experiencing the challenges related to job searching, discernment, and questions related to roles and vocations. So with that said, allow me to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you for being part of the conversation and for making this first year so rewarding for me!
To celebrate, here are 3 questions I have for you. I would love your thoughts on these. To answer them please comment here below, reply on Twitter, comment on Facebook or Linked-In, or share via E-mail.
1) What is one topic or question that you would love for me to wrestle with in an upcoming blog post?
2) What was your favorite post from the first year of this blog and why?
3) Would you be interested in sharing your thoughts anywhere within the spectrum of church, leadership, and the neighbor as a sort of upcoming guest post on this blog?
I look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks and blessings!-TS
