Well . . . it all started out very innocent. I saw lots of other people doing it and I thought to myself, “This doesn’t look too harmful . . . I should give it a try as well.” Little did I know that I would end up in the state that I am in today. After the first time, I was hooked. I found myself needing the fix more and more. It began to consume all my thoughts – day and night – thinking about how I was going to get my next fix. It wasn’t until this morning, that I realized that I had a problem . . . so . . . my name is Kevin and I am a . . . BLOG-A-HOLIC.
Over the last several months I have been introduced to several blogs – some from family members, some from friends, some from church planters and some from other pastors. Each blog uniquely reflects the personality of the person writing it and that is what I most ENJOY. So here are some of my favourite blogs and why I like them:
Awaiting Rain: This blogger’s name is Bill Huffhine. I am always captivated by Bill’s thinking. His heart is for the church to return to it’s root of being missional (being outward thinking versus inward thinking). He definitely is an “out of the box” thinker. Now, I don’t always agree with what he says but I am always challenged to think about what he has said.
The Bivouac: This blog is written by a church planter that I met recently named Tony Liston. Tony has a HUGE heart for people and for reaching the lost. Tony has planted a coffee-house style church ministry in Iowa. I love Tony’s down to earth style of blogging. He is easy to read BUT it is not FLUFF that he is presenting.
Leading for a Change: This bloggers name is Randy Willis and his passion (if you haven’t already guessed it) is LEADERSHIP. Randy is just finishing his doctor of ministry at Ausbury Theological Seminary. I go to Randy’s blog often looking for leadership insights.
Three bloggers, three VERY different personalities, three UNIQUE styles and yet here I am reading them all. To me, these blogs have become a way to challenge myself in my thinking and they force me to think outside of my “BOX”.
Now that I have got that off my chest . . . time to read another blog . . .
