The Storyline Blog was created to help you live a better story with your life. And for us, that means gaining mental clarity by remembering priorities and executing a plan to live into them.
By mental clarity, I mean honing down on what really matters in life. That is, when the credits roll, what will have truly mattered.
For us, what we feel matters in the end are, among other things:
• To have developed a close relationship with God
• To have participated with Him in the work He’s doing
• To have loved the people around us
• To have contributed positively to our communities
• To have nurtured our souls
• To have lived in faith and not worry
• To have told great stories with our lives
• To have been part of a greater, global community
So the Storyline Blog is all about remembering why we are here. We are a group of Christians who intend to write about life, about priorities, and relationships and faith. We do not want this blog to be a smash hit, but rather a place where a quiet community of people can interact, be inspired and encouraged.
To do this, we’re assembling a group of capable writers who are living great, clear stories themselves. You can learn more about our first round of writers on the “Contributors” page. But do know the group of contributors is growing. We intend to grow this group slowly, by watching writers and bloggers who are contributing consistent, good content to the world.
Though we will have guest contributors, I’ll still be posting on this blog at least twice each week, and often even more.
We know there is no shortage of Christian blogs out there. And the last thing we want to do is write content that “sells” or “attracts the most readers.” Rather, we want to write content that feeds and encourages souls (not that the two are mutually exclusive). We want to be a small café, as it were, where people come for breakfast and a long stay over coffee.
My initial questions, upon the launch of our new blog are:
What do you feel is missing in an online Christian community?
What could we offer on this blog that will feed your soul?
