a virtual potluck—y’all come!

Fellowship and community are some of the most sacred gifts God gives us to enjoy as we choose to follow His Son. Grafted in by grace and given full-fledged membership,  you’re either a brother or a sister to everyone in this heaven bound family.

The family that stays together, _________________ together. (We know how some of you love to fill in those blanks!)

There’s a reason for everything in God’s Word and sticking together is no different:

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works,not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some,but exhorting one another so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:24-25  – NKJV


Potluck: Bring your best!

We want to continue the tradition of assembling and sharing.

Instead of asking you to bring Aunt Jean’s homemade banana pudding, Sister Sadie’s fried chicken, or Cousin Verna’s cheese grits, we’re looking for you to bring a load of other good stuff guaranteed to stir up love and good works.

Help us set the table with your favorite social-media tip, website link, or favorite blogger. We’d also love for you to do a 3 – 5 sentence ‘review’ about why you like what you brought. (think of it as your 3×5 recipe card) We’ll catalog your tips, website links, resources or tools along with YOUR review in our resource center.  Our resource center is YOUR resource center.  This is a great way to share what you know.  Let’s enable each other so we can share the Truth more effectively.

Please know that your dish doesn’t have to come from a faith-based source – if it is good tech instruction or advice –we’ll serve it up and we’ll use it for the glory of God.

In fact, that’s exactly what we’re fixin’ to serve today. For some this may already be an RSS/inbox favorite, but if it is new to you –  we hope it’s a rich and filling discovery.

Just type what you are looking for in the search box and in you  go.  Take the jump, be immersed, and you will stay ahead of the curve.

What are you bringing to the table today? What do you have to share?

    One of my favorite sites is eHow.com. If you want to figure out anything at all, you will likely find it here. You can type in “how to use my Google Reader” and they will go through it step by step. I’m on this site more than I’m in my kitchen! :)

    Toni – I love eHow, too! I am all about EASY. Although I need another analogy – ‘time in the kitchen” well…you know…that time is not too hard for anything else in my life to beat.

    I also really like About.com – type in the what you need in the search and you get a whole list of options to explore. Good to go in there with a specific ‘mission in mind’ or you could tumble down a rabbit hole for days. (And of course you don’t need to ask me how I know this…)

    Here’s one of my favs–The High Calling: http://www.thehighcalling.org/

    Review: Visiting The High Calling is like going on a daily retreat. It focuses on the intersection of work and faith, and their motto is, “Every day conversations about work, life, and God.” It includes a network of social media writers and bloggers who share the vision. It’s a great place to explore and discover encouragement for the journey and address work, faith, life, culture, and attitude. (P.S. My blog is part of the network.)
