So here I am, trying to navigate through the ins and outs of posting on Coe Church of Christ's webpage. It is going okay, thanks to Barb. Big thanks! It strikes me every time I'm on the page how much it changes--always for the better. I trust my postings won't change that!
Webpages are always changing, always under construction, being updated and altered. Although it would be nice to have it functioning at it's best immediately, I know that isn't the way life works. Ministries change, and events come and go like the days on the calendar. Ummm...the calendar that needs updating already.
Maybe that is a good metaphor for us. We don't remain static. We change whether we want to or not. In fact, it's good to change, or better put...to grow.
Scripture speaks this truth. We are to grow in our spiritual life, and in that context our fellowship within the Body, our prayer life, stewardship, and wisdom will be changing (growing) as well. The writer of Hebrews tells us to "leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity...and God permitting, we will do so" (6:1-3).
Anyway, if I haven't bored you yet, let me tell you a little about what you will read here. First, the opinions you read are mine and may or may not be the opinions of the leadership of Coe Church of Christ. But because we read the same Bible and come from the same Restoration Movement background, more than likely our opinions will be in agreement. That being aptly stated, if I write something brainless or not deeply considered beforehand in the future, the imprudence is mine and mine alone.
Don't expect perfect grammar...I's jus writin as I's thinkin.
I'll share with you the books I read, interesting quotes I've come across, and of course the Scripture that effects my heart and mind and allows me to grow.
My opinions are subject to change. Hopefully they change as I personally leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity.
Feel free to comment, agree, disagree, or tell me I'm nuts, but I reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason. (abusive, rude, profane, or anonymous comments) so keep it affirming to Christ. You know who He is...the One who reads and judges everything we write...think...ponder...speak...
