While I was away in Canada, I stopped by the Freeway Café (Hamilton, Ontario) and visited with good friends Pernell Goodyear and Nathan Colquhoun. They are so graciously helping me ungrade my blog. Coming this fall, I am changing the blog’s title to “Reclaiming the Mission .com” There wil be no need to change your link if you currently link to “the great giveaway.” I am changing the blog away from the title of my book “the Great Giveaway” and instead moving it towards its subtitle as I seek to widen the discussion and scope of this blog. I hope to continue with two to three mini-blog essays a month on topics on emerging ministry issues, postmodernity and evangelicalism. I also hope to blog two or three times a month on personal stuff I am seeing, participating in and receiving as part of pastoring Life on the Vine, teaching at Northern, and speaking at various events which I am doing more of these days. Hopefully you’ll tune in and chime in as we continue the discussion as to how to go forward as ministers of Christ in these new N. American contexts and theological currents called post-modern, post Christian, post secular. Look for the new look on the blog upcoming this fall. Thanks to Nathan and Pernell … they are true friends I could not do without.
