About The Blog
In his book Humilitas John Dickson writes, “Since life is fundamentally about relationships, the relational virtues such as humility, compassion, trustworthiness and so on are keys to virtually all spheres of life.”
It is with these virtues in mind that we decided to write this blog. We have no desire to be the answer for anything. Our hope is to start and be involved in the conversation. We view this blog as an investment in people, in our community, and in working to leave a positive imprint on the world around us.
We believe we are all called to live life to the full and to “go make disciples.” The Greek word for “go” can be translated into “as you go.” Meaning, as we go through the events of our everyday life together we are called to learn from one another and teach the people around us. Whether it’s eating dinner with family or close friends or riding the bus with strangers, there are lessons to be learned and stories to be told in all of the many interactions that form our daily lives.
This is where you enter into the community and join the conversation. We believe that you have valuable thoughts, opinions, wisdom, perspectives, and a voice that is unique, and you are living a story that deserves to be heard. The goal of this blog is not to replace face to face relationships but rather to create a meaningful conversation and further enable community. Together we will choose to ignore the fears of failing, messing up, being wrong, and making embarrassing typos. Instead, we will be bold and vulnerable and share life as it happens, in all of its challenges, grittiness, transformation, and joys.
