potluck friday: 5 fab men to follow

For our potluck Friday post, we’re keeping it simple . . . real simple. This list could go on for a mile but we are going to start the discussion by posting 5 #FF peope online we appreciate. If you do the same in the comment section, by the end of the day, our mutual communities will be infused with more light, more wisdom, and more truth. If you use the Follow Friday opportunity effectively, this is a great way to build a very targeted community that you can trust, learn from, and swap resources and knowledge with.

This #FF list applies to Twitter but we highly recommend you friend them on Facebook, “like” their fan pages, or drop by to comment on their blogs. You’ll be blessed.

Today’s 5 fab are all inspiring men of God.

    Of course these are our TOP 5 but the list goes on and on and on . . .

    Here’s a short list of our #FF “more than honorable” mentions. We love and celebrate men who take the time to LEAD the conversation for Christ online! May Our Father’s Kingdom come online via “our leading men!”

    Thank you for including me in this list it is quite humbling.

  • http://twitter.com/JeffHolton Jeffrey Holton

    Toni, thank you so much for this. I am honored to be included in the company of some men I know, some I’ve wanted to get to know for a long while, and some whom I’ve never heard of but on your influence will go looking for now.

    (And one who recently stopped following me, not that I’m mentioning any names. *kicks @corepastor gently in the shin to see if he’s paying attention*)

    Also, I’m not sure how I missed out on following you, but I’ve just remedied that situation. Welcome aboard!

    P.S. IMHO, you might want to remove @DonaldMiller from that list and replace him with @donmilleris. I’m pretty sure that’s who you meant.

  • Toni

    Thanks for stopping by to chat Jeff! I’ve always LOVED your sense of humor and that you are a pro at keeping it real online. Kinda makes me wanna be one of those Christian folks, ya know? … :)

    Following/Unfollowing: I’ve accidentally unfollowed people, I’m thinking (giving grace) that’s what happens some times with othere believers online. It’s interesting to watch the whole Twitter thing and the different perspectives on following. Some people are oblivious to others, and just yak away all day, while others actually take a few seconds to engage—that goes a LONG way, in my book. As we live more and more online, I’m thinking some cultural norms will settle in. Hoping believers can support one another w/o condition and give unity to the true reason we are all here —> eternity. Love seeing more LIGHT online each and every day!

    Thanks for clarifying @donmilleris. I’ll go in and fix (love fellow eagle eyes!) Be blessed!

  • Toni

    I’d like to add one more to mix. Scott Couchenour’s Twitter profile reads, “Burnout Executioner. Evangelist of serving strong in ministry leadership.” Scott is a certified life coach and blogger and a great encourager. He’s “committed to your success as a ministry leader and “believes life rhythm and self care are not only absolutely essential, but definitely possible.” Read his blog at http://servingstrong.com, subscribe to his PowerMail, and follow him on Twitter @servingstrong.
