Reading and Writing

October 12, 2009

One of the things about blogging that seems to be true is that the more you read, the more you write. I suppose it’s true for other forms of writing too. I’m certainly finding it to be true myself.

One of the reasons I haven’t blogged much in the past two months is that I haven’t been reading many blogs in that time period. There are lots of reasons why, but I can certainly see the truth of the statement. Lately, I’ve been reading blogs again and find myself with more to say. Huh.

Here’s a snippit from an interesting post I read the other day, from Craig Groeschel:

When I meet people from our church, they often tell me more with their words than they realize.

They almost always say one of two things:

  • “I go to your church.”
  • “I love our church.”

People who respond the first way generally just attend the church. People who go the 2nd route tend to be the church.

The spiritual connection: Are we attending or being church?

Enjoying the Outdoors

April 18, 2008

I had about 75 pages to read for class today.  It was such a beautiful day, I packed up my stuff and left early to stop at the Upper Rapids of the Niagara to do my reading on the bench right by the water.  It didn’t make the reading easier to follow, but it was a great 1.5 hours in the sun, enjoying God’s creation.  I spent a few minutes just watching the large chunks of ice floating towards the falls.

What was I reading about?  See my next post!
