“The unspoken idea has no chance of blessing anyone other than the one to whom had it.” – Your Truly
I haven’t written as much this year as I have in years past. A combination of business, laziness, higher priorities, and un-cohesive and/or incomplete thoughts.
But I have a bunch of unfinished posts in my “drafts” file. So I thought I’d do an experiment with them that I haven’t done before.
I’ve posted the titles to them below. If any of them pique your interest, cast a vote by replying to this email (or posting a comment on this blog if don’t get my email), and perhaps your interest will help me with some additional motivation.
“A question I am ashamed to answer”
“You can be this good.”
“The restoration of discipleship.”
“Two haunting questions.”
“A sacred weekend.”
“What I would do if I came to your church.” (a series)
“How to approach God.”
“Saving people from their sins.”
“Who stole my church?”
“Small group intimacy.”
“On speaking engagements.”
“The sinner that Jesus condemned.”
“Freezing up and asking the world to wait.”
“When the blessing of the job becomes the curse of it.”
“Not all available parts of the spiritual life are easy to attain.”
“Clash of the (value system) Titans.”
“Unity isn’t unity if there is no mission.”
“The precious worship service.”
“My love-hate relationship with structure.”
“Progressing from listening to talking to doing to being.”
“Brian’s next job description.”
Wow…there are so many. I didn’t even realize. Unfortunately, these unfinished thoughts are a sort of mirror to my life.
I’m completely open to the idea that none of these may interest anyone. I try to imagine that perhaps some of the ideas, thoughts, rants, and revelations that occasionally consume me may be of some use to others. But, as the words that automatically go out at the end of every email suggests, I write these pieces in my effort to “keep it real” and think out loud…as one of the tools that I use to stay in my heart…and to do so relationally.
Let me know, friends. I love you.
