Ready to Ramp

I’ve hit the ground peddaling, trying to finish my WIP The Pirate Queen in the coming days. And after it’s finished, I’m so filled up with God and the things that he’s ordained as missional in my life, I can’t wait to get the spiritual wheels spinning in 2009.

That in mind, I’d like to ramp up the missional language here at Words to Go. So I’m going to offer to you a few weeks out of the year designated as “Ask the Expert” week. I’ve sent interview requests to several authors who are considered “giants of the faith.” But I must add that, in having known most of them for many years, the fact that they’ve humbled themselves to the priesthood of Christ is what has elevated them spiritually. They are not “celebrity” driven leaders, but are simply Christ followers, sold out to obedience to Christ. The first “Ask the Expert” week will have as its topic prayer. Each author/communicator will offer us bits of wisdom about a prayer subject that’s near and dear to her heart regarding prayer and how prayer has changed her for the better.

Additionally, you my friends and fellow bloggers may chime in with your comments on that day. Once the authors are confirmed, I’ll post the dates and reveal the big mystery of who I’ll feature each day. If you don’t mind, please help spread the word in blogdom for those interested in biblical discussions—you’ll want to when you see the list of names.

Fun, fun, fun and even a little deep, deep, deep! This week, I’m going to delve into a subject that for me is personal, the subject of being good versus being obedient to God.
Tomorrow’s blog is entitled “On Being Good.” I look forward to your comments and, please, feel free to chime in with any thoughts or personal stuff. I’m a big believer in being the Confessional Church and that means that I have to unpack my life in all of its flaws with an awareness of my “nothingness” without Christ. I encourage dialogue that speaks to our own flaws rather than others; that’s where we begin to glean from a pure well of thought, filters removed.

Ready to ramp!
