New name but same journey

I thought I would link this blog more closely with my name so it can be found more easily!  What I still need to work out how to do is to transfer my old blogposts to this one – don’t worry, I haven’t deactivated ‘trainfilledthetemple’ yet.

My general goal is to write at least a blogpost a week.  I want to reference, while I am writing, a brilliant blog that I found yesterday while spending some time surfing the net (we have to ask how useful this time is, but I believe it happened to be time well-invested yesterday!) that many of you may know: Jonny Baker’s blog.  http://jonnybaker.blogs.com/ He has been blogging for about nine years, and has many links on his blogroll, go to it quickly here: http://jonnybaker.blogs.com/jonnybaker/blogs.html.  He is linked in to the Pioneer network of churches, and is part of a community called Grace, in London.

While I’m not in the ’emergent church’ myself, I find it great that church nowadays is looking to be more mission-oriented, and actually to ‘start’ in mission, rather than to start in ‘church’.  A great little illustration of this is here: http://churchfromscratch.org/  Watch the video ‘It’s time to stop starting with church’.  Baker described this as ‘come to us or go to them’.  Enjoy!

About stayingfaithful

I am looking for anything that relates to life and to a fuller life. I am bored by the normal and the natural and interested in the supernatural. There must be more than this. We were put on this earth for more than a nine to five prison, as someone said a few years ago.
