If You Can't Beat'em, Join'em!

Well, I'm not trying to beat anyone but I have decided to join the world of blogdom. I have been secretively lurking the the shadows for years now and I am ready to step into the light. I find blogging to be one of the most interesting forms of communication and self-expression that exist. One of the difficulties is deciding just what I should write about. At this juncture, all I can say is that I have no real focus here. I will be writing about missions, theology, apologetics and every day life as missionary.

I expect that some of my blogs will be reflective of that particular day but I want to encourage a Socratic type of interaction between people. I find that I learn best in community. Community is a place where I can be challenged and edified to the glory of God. So please join in discussion and make learning a community effort. Soli Deo Gloria.

"self-expression" . . . "community" . . . are you going emergent on us, Danny boy. Ha! It's good to finally see you in the blogosphere. I look forward to many posts and pictures of the field. BTW, have you seen Kenny's SEC blog?

Jonathan Moorhead said...

I see you have been sucked in! Watch out, it becomes addicting! That being said, welcome to the blogging world!

Daniel said...

Hey Steph! Good to hear from you. My addiction started long before I started. We continue to pray for you.

Daniel said...

Thanks guys for the welcome. Johnny boy, no I have not strayed from the faith..ha..ha.. but I think you have made me think of a good topic. Just what is the emergent movement a reaction to or what is it that we can learn from them(if anything)?

Aaw, dang!! I was hoping for a waaaay more interesting blog. Theology? Churchy things? Christiany stuff? Really?? Seriously?
OK. Your blog, your way. I guess I'll have to call you guys to get the fun stuff!! Hee hee...
Guess I was kinda hoping to hear way more about finding studs in your new lake house, or jumping on trampolines (no pictures please!) or laughing hysterically with old friends over a hot steaming plate of pancakes or muffins in the AM after a weekend spent delighting in memories of old. But OK. Whatever. I just hope you aren't offended by all my comments along the way! ;)
Soooooooooo good to chat with y'all the other night.
Matt & I are looking forward to seeing y'all during the holidays!!
