So, in the spirit of Web 2.0, I ask you a question. I’ve been wondering what to blog about in January and I’m tempted to go in a particular direction…but it’s a big commitment on both of our parts. I hate being mr. negative, but I feel like writing for most of the month on two subjects that in the end I hope will be redemptive, not negative (although it could sound that way).
This morning I wrote list of the top ten traps church leaders/volunteers fall into, and then another list on the top ten traps Christians fall into. I know, because I’ve been in almost every one of these traps at one point or another. There’s no science to what makes the lists: just my observations after years of doing this. But as we start a new year, I know I always like to think about learning how to live differently and more wisely, and the goal would be to catalyze that kind of change through these discussions.
About one trap a day (or five a week) for pretty much the rest of the month.
What do you think? Boring? Too negative? Too whatever? Could we phrase it differently? What do you think? (Curious as to what they are? I’m not telling you in advance. :))
The goal would would be at the end of the month to have had some great reflection, dialogue and hopefully healthier leadership and a healthier following of God among all of us, myself included.
Fire away. The floor is yours. Tell me whether you’d like this or not.
