Now that school is out for me, I am excited to be able to get back to the figurative notepad and write more about the things that I believe matter in life, which unfortunately does not include the hand with which one passes a “communion tray” or what a pastor does with his remaining vacation time when he ditches his church for another church among several other things. In this vein, I intend to begin a series starting this week, entitled, “Just a Thought,” which shall consist of several small blog posts written by yours truly (and whomever else whose fancy is tickled by the opportunity) that are designed to make one think outside of his cultural and religious box and to ask the all important question, “Why?” None of these posts shall be treatises by any stretch of the imagination, but I hope that they will inspire you, first, to think about the subject that is being addressed in a way that you might not have thought about that particular subject before and, second, to encourage you to begin to ask questions yourself and to seek for answers that are not bound solely in culture and tradition. I know that many, particularly those in the church, are scared at the thought of people asking questions and thinking for themselves, but I personally delight in the thought and think that these things when guided and bound by the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit will be a very healthy practice for the church. I hope that you will be encouraged in the coming weeks and that your encouragement will spill over into your churches. Soli Deo gloria.
