23:5 Meme

October 21, 2005

I don’t like the “tag five other people to do the same thing”. That smells like junk that clogs up email, and doesn’t take into account the way the blogosphere works. A good meme can stand on its own, and I like this one.

1. Go into your archives
2. Find your 23rd post.
3. Post the 5th sentence (or closest to it).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Tag five other people to do the same thing.

“What I think is missing is the whole point of contextualizing the gospel into a postmodern setting: to bring the saving power of Jesus to a people who speak a different language, who think in a different worldview.”

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. Taken from the 23 picture:
    “Our monthly gathering of those who know the truth. Joined together by no particular church.”

  2. I like the way you put this, Jon. I’m not comfortable with the tagging thing either. But, like you, I liked the concept of the exercise. I just wasn’t creative enough to put a bar through the 5th instruction! I’ll have to remember that one. Your 23:5 sure came up with a good one!

  3. Okay… do you have mind control or something? I left your blog, went over to my blog to blog the thing from Feeble Knees’ blog, came back to see that you had blogged the same thing in nearly the same way. What’s up with that?

  4. Your sentence wins. And how is it that I travel around the world via blogs and end up here on a blog that is somehow connected to The Vineyard in Riverside? I’m an old lady in Hemet, used to live in Corona, long ago in Riverside. God leads us where we need to be, eh?
    I’ll be reading through your archives and I’ll try to quit commenting right and left.
    Hugs again,

  5. “oh no”: my post

    “The God who created became the creation in order to recreate the world.”

  7. “It’s got to be a public process for all of us.”
