I’m excited to share with you about a significant development that will take place on this blog with the publishing of a special post tomorrow. Not only am I excited about the post itself, which is enough to get excited about, as I think you will see tomorrow, but also because it marks the launching of a new initiative that has been in my heart for close to a year now.
The initiative is called “The WORD in 3D”.
This blogging venture is distinct in that it is entirely Word-centered/Scripture-based, and it is unique in that it is collaborative in nature, engaging three bloggers per post.
Here’s how it works.
After seeking the Lord for wisdom and guidance, I select a small portion of Scripture as the basis of the post. I then invite two, or possibly three, Christ-honoring bloggers to join together in creating a three-perspective post. (If only two, I will be the third blogger for the post. If three, they will do the writing, and I will simply be the host and administrator of the project.) Each blogger will then independently write between 300-600 words of Christ-centered reflection on that Scripture portion. When completed, these will be compiled together into one post, lightly edited, if needed, and published.
In this way the WORD, referring first and foremost to the Lord Jesus Christ, and secondarily to Scripture, will be seen from three diverse vantage points, giving the picture a depth and clarity that could not be obtained otherwise. It will be kind of like viewing the WORD through 3D glasses!
It is my intention that these posts will become a regular feature on this blog, being produced, on average, every six weeks or so.
There is considerably more that I could say about this venture at this point, but I want to keep this post short and sweet. For those who are interested in finding out more, I’ve added a permanent page to the blog that is a more comprehensive “About” page for this undertaking. There I answer the basic “Who?”, “What?”, “When?”, “Where?”, “Why?”, and “How?” questions related to this initiative. You may access it here, or on the header bar, if you would like.
As passionate as I am about my regular blogging, this initiative excites me innumerable times more. I am excited to fellowship and work together with my brothers and sisters on these projects and to see how the Lord Jesus works in and through them. He is all for mutuality and the body working together, and He has promised to be in the midst when two or three come together in His Name. I expect and anticipate His presence and blessing in and through these projects as they unfold. Once published, these posts will also be open conversations that, I believe, will inspire those reading to add their perspectives and comments in as well.
I am greatly anticipating the publishing of the first project tomorrow. I’ve had the privilege and blessing of working with two wonderful brothers on it. Tune in tomorrow, for the pilot post, and then join in the conversation!
Love and blessings!
