Three years ago I gave up blogging for Lent. This year I am moving in the opposite direction. it has been over a year since I have regularly posted here, so for this season of Lent, I will commit to blogging each day.
Except Sundays, of course. Sunday’s aren’t counted as part of Lent.
I know that six posts a week is way more that optimal blogging. Consider it making up for lost ground.
Feel free not to read them all.
I had already made this plan when I came across Jeremy’s latest at Hacking Christianity, “Would a Missionary give up Swahili for Lent?” Here’s the Len Sweet (@LenSweet) Quote that secured my commitment to blog this Lent:
Good luck with saying in the past 500 years “I’m sorry, I don’t do books.” Good luck with saying in the next 30 years, “I’m sorry I don’t do Internet.” As the book was the delivery system for learning and faith development, the Internet will be the delivery system for learning and faith development…
What’s the first thing a missionary does? Learn the language. This is the language of the world we live. I’m sorry if you don’t like it. You could go “okay, I don’t like Swahili.” Well, if God has called us to be ministry now in this kind of a world, so you don’t get to choose: you have to learn a new language.
So it looks like I’ve got a lot of writing to do over the next 40 days. If you’d like to help, send me a topic or a question for me to answer. Either comment here, twitter (@steveheyduck), find me on facebook, or email me at steve (dot) noncon (at) gmail.com
