a pot full of thanks for blogs & bloggers

We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. ~II Cor 4:7 MSG

Thanks for resisting the conditioned response, to the holiday shopping bell or that familiar frantic push for the early bird special, long enough to dip a ladle in today’s pot full of thanks for blogs and bloggers.

Since the gospel is the stickiest story ever told, committing to write a blog is one of the most powerful channels to get that story heard.  Brian Bailey, author of The Blogging Church, says the case for Christian bloggers comes down to one point:

“Blogging is simply a new way of telling stories. In the same way that we seek out new modes of worshipping, preaching and reaching out, we must find new methods of sharing stories.

The message doesn’t change when the methodology changes. If the methodology fails to change, however, we begin to distance ourselves from the people we are called to reach, and we risk becoming irrelevant.”

While writing, @stickyJesus how to live out your faith online, God linked our hearts to many anointed bloggers, some eager and willing to share their stories with us and all of you. When you read their blogs, you catch a glimpse of God moving and working across this time and space. You see Him using these men and women to bring truth, hope, and light to the  serving, suffering, and lost.

Today we give thanks for these bloggers and their contribution to @stickyJesus.

  1. Scott Williams: Husband, father, thought leaders, author and LifeChurch.tv pastor.
  2. Jenni Catron: Executive director of @crosspoint_TV and founder of Cultivate Her. Wife, blogger, avid reader, always tea/never coffee, passionate about leading well.

  4. Marie Wikle: Founder of Spreading Joy Corporation, a nonprofit dedicated to communicating the joy of giving around the world.

  6. Jamee Rae Pineada: Involved with a Christian recovery ministry that uses ten Bible-based principles to transform lives.
  7. Meredith Gould: Abbess for the Virtual Abbey…we believe spiritual life transcends boundaries of time and place. Our online community prays the daily office on twitter.

Because we really want to share their sticky stories with you – we’re giving you a special incentive. (The good news here is that you don’t have to push, shove, or knock down anything to get it off  a shelf – it’s merely a click away.)
