Good morning, friends! I’ve been away for a bit, but I’m back. I took a short break to regroup and to reflect on the purpose of this blog. It began as a means to grow more confident about my writing and to spread the love of Christ at the same time. It morphed into a ministry (though I was reluctant to call it that). Then I was reminded that God qualifies those he calls. Titles like pastor and father are not necessary to do his work — just an earnest heart that revels in pleasing him. So, my mission remains the same — to spread the love of Christ through the power of story.
Storytelling seems like a lost art form. Much of our families’ history is passed down in the oral tradition. It was a time of togetherness, of joy, of pride. I want to go back to that. That will make this place great. Sitting at the dinner table and talking about our day without cell phones or TVs to distract us seems so far away. I want to go back to that. That will make this place great. Going to church as a family, having a block party where everyone is invited, and attending a church bizarre where we all got along seems like a lifetime away. I want to go back to that. That will make this place great.
There’s no need to do big things in order to make our world better; all it takes is lots of little things. What’s one little thing that you and your family can do to make this place great? We can’t wait for someone else to do it. That someone is you. What will you and your family do consistently to make this place great? Scroll down to the comments and share it with me. We’re all depending on you.
Before you leave, take a few minutes to enjoy my Music Monday selection by David Dunn entitled “I Wanna Go Back.” May blessings abound! <3
