Moving forward I'll still be talking a great deal about the church. Most of my posts will look at outcomes and goals as opposed to forms. Primary topics will include edification, discipleship, unity, and missions.
Along with church-related issues, I'll continue writing about the family, politics, education, and culture in general. These topics will be less frequent than church issues, and usually arise when something occurs that is noteworthy nationally. Not surprisingly, many of these topics overlap quite bit.
I recently posted the following on Facebook, "The older I get the more important the unity of the body of Christ is becoming to me. Our differences seem less important while our togetherness seems increasingly critical. Let us unite around Jesus Christ and his gospel." I was happy to see several of my friends "Like" this statement. I sense increasing numbers of Christians desiring unity within the body of Christ as a whole. This excites me. I'll be writing more and more on the topic of unity in the days ahead. My hope is that this blog will be more of a uniter than a divider.
To sum up, it's simply time for a change (but not "change we can believe in.")
