So I’m blog-hopping looking for something creative to post today and suddenly realizing how easy it is to be caught up in someone else’s issues. There are discussions and debates going on about a wide range of topics that, if I am reading these blogs correctly, are so critical that the fate of civilization as we know it is hanging in the balance.
Sometimes a topic intersects an area of personal interest. Other times, I think of something clever — okay, at least I think it’s clever — to add as a short comment. But the next day that blog will be off on a different subject which really isn’t something I see as critical to my own personal walk with Jesus.
Many Christian blogs are caught up in discussions that make your head spin. I love surveying the issues and seeing what matters to some people. (A blog like Internet Monk — see the blogroll — will do that for you and give you a crash course in theological hot topics.) But often I feel like this is someone else’s discussion. Maybe I just haven’t reached a level of spiritual maturity to burden myself with certain topics. Or maybe — and this is a BIG maybe — they haven’t written their argument in such a way as to evoke from me a response out of the depth of my understanding and connection to that particular concern.
So…what really matters to you right now? What topic would you like to find on a Christian blog that would hit you right where you’re living at this moment?
Break up into groups of 3-4 and discuss; OR leave a comment! (Or both!)
