But I still try to ready my favorites and today I liked something Jordon said about churches and accentuating the positive:
I wish there was more local church weblogs. Telling stories and posting some pictures of the church in action, discussion in community, and just showing what communities of Christ followers are actually doing in the world, rather than ranting about it. ... Stories are so important and need to be told. I don't think that our ranting about what is wrong will change that much but telling stories of hope, joy, and engagement in our communities just may.
What he says makes a lot of sense to me. It's too easy to focus on the negative, which often leads to a sense of helplessness.
