Finally, we are about ready to launch a service that I have been dreaming and talking about for nearly three years. This new venture is an outgrowth of my life’s purpose of encouraging people who are discovering new ways of being the church and helping them to become a demonstration of Christ’s kingdom. Right up front, I want to confess something. I am trying to figure this out for myself. I don’t have formulas or a list glowing success stories. I do a journey, friendships, a network, and some life lessons that I want to share.
There are three groups of people that I have in mind who I think will find this new service helpful… those who are asking questions about the institutional church or have left it, those who are experimenting in new ways to be the church, and those who are recovering church leaders.
The services will include a web site which is an umbrella site for three blogs, a resource network, and a social network. The three blogs will be directed toward the three groups of people that I mentioned above.
I am very excited about the team that has come together to produce this ministry and to provide input. They include a web developer who has done a wonderful job with the site, a commercial graphic artist who designed our logo, site buttons, and header, and a who’s who of insightful communicators who also happen to be some of my favorite people and are going through the very transitions of which they write. I will unveil the team later this week.
Am excited about the possibilities of this new service to help a lot people who are a journey that bears similarity to what so many have been going through. Essentially, it is a community for the rest of us. I look forward to all of the new friendships, the exchange of ideas, and the collaborations that will grow out of it.
Okay, I am sure that you noticed that I have not revealed the site. That is because we want the various blogs to be populated with fresh new content, but here is a reminder. We will be going live next Monday, June 1st.
