I’m a dork. I know that. I journal and collect things and hold onto memories and forget lots of other stuff.
And now I’m planning to blog, for about a year, about growing up in the Church of Christ (and about some other stuff). And maybe I’ll go for longer, if it proves helpful. Or I might throw in the towel by Christmas, if it doesn’t.
But I think I’ll keep it up. You see, I’ve been logging thoughts for awhile. And I believe this is bigger than my own middle-aged vision of what the CofC was. I believe it’s about our common experiences (for those of us who grew up in conservative evangelical circumstances). It’s the story of US.
So stop by and take a look when you have a chance, or sign up for the feed. Your input is welcome, but remember to sprinkle your words with some grace. I will too.
By the way, I am not a bitter CofC-backgrounded guy. I’ve had some wonderful experiences along the way. Maybe you have too? But I’ll admit … there were some bumps in the road.
Thanks for checking in. I’ll post again soon, and I’ll plan on including some other voices. Maybe even the voices of some of the womenfolk? Are you okay with that?
