was talking with Keck today and he was saying how there was a prediction that all the emerging church blogs would pitter out within 3 years or so of their inception, and I wanted to be skeptical. While at the same time, I know that I have been contemplating a break from blogging for a while.
Then I read Glenn Johnson's blog and Alan Creech's blog and I wonder if its not true.
Have the things that needed to be said, been said? do we need to focus now on the building of healthy church communities and not talk about it so much? in this journey of "emerging chuch" now for the past 5-6 years that I've been on, I am admittedly in a complete different place then when I started. I used to be angry, now I"m at peace. I used to be driven, now I'm content. I used to have big dreams, now I just want to obedient. I used to long for a larger network, now I want to be faithful with a few.
for the 1st time in my leadership journey, i can't see the future. i have no idea what the future of OCC is. somehow i believe that it depends on my own spiritual journey in becoming the creation I am called to be. my seminary president said at graduation: "the greatest need in your church is your own personal holiness", at this stage, I think he is right.
i am quite humbled, quite broken, quite willing to do whatever comes next.
come Holy Spirit, dwell among us.
