I've Been Moved
I've been moved....
I have decided to begin to send you, a few of my closest friends and relatives, some personal thoughts from my heart. Most of these will be musings from being in God's army announcing the Good News and forming the redeemed into congregations. They will not be exposés of methodology nor theology. I will write what my heart is feeling, if I can get it into words.
I do not know how many of these short, extremely informal essays I will write, nor how often I will be in a creative mood and heart willing to share.
But, (oh, you are not supposed to start with a "but," however I am known to back into what I want to say) I feel my inner self yearning to speak with you who know me better than others I have journeyed with on this planet.
Except for a novel, still unpublished and not submitted, I have not allowed that inner voice to express itself much through my fingers to the keyboard of whichever computer is nearby. The hundreds of pages of articles, reports, and proposals do not really give me the same feeling as the expressions of heart and spirit that will be poured periodically into this journal from a soldier to Africa. Somewhat the difference between a six mile run and the resulting afterglow.
Well, lets see what flows.....
