Cool Announcement #1

Visit Incarnating Christ

Okay, I was going to hold this off a little longer, but I can't help myself. I'm too excited.
I've created a new online social group called "Incarnating Christ" for those who are passionate about incarnating Christ's love to the hurting. To become a member is free. Simply go to http://incarnatingchrist.ning.com/ and follow the steps.
Wondering what it is? Here are some possibilities:

  1. Discuss on the forums theological and practical questions for ministry, including questions like how can I get involved when I live in suburbia? or how should I get my children involved in inner city ministry when it's not "safe"? or what does it mean when Christ told the rich young ruler to give away all he had?
  2. Connect with missionaries overseas. Heather Jamison has uploaded a great video with some of the people in her life in Africa. I have to admit. The beauty of it made me cry.
  3. Share (upload) songs and videos that inspire you.
  4. Create local/church groups to keep each other up-to-date with what's going on in the area.
  5. Share ideas for getting involved locally and globally.
  6. Encourage each other when frustrated.
  7. Write blog posts on a particular event.
  8. Pray for each other.

The possibilities are endless! It's different than Blogger or MySpace because there are so many more options. Go check it out!

I'll have cool announcement #2 up in the next day or two.

What a great idea. I will have to check it out. I love blogging and have only met a few negative people on here. It allows me to express and be myself.

I see we were posting on each others blog at the same time. I love your website and signed up. Thanks.

I saw that in your sidebar and clicked it without realizing you were the mastermind behind it, too.

(You know I'm reading you backwards, right?)

I love this idea as well, but gosh, you know how "behind" I am when it comes to all things--and all people--online. I soooo wanna be an ACTIVE part...now, I just gotta figure out how.

Great idea...and please know, I'm gonna try (after I keep up with blogging my buds a bit better).
