Do you remember those “N things about yourself” memes that used to float around the Internet, especially on Facebook? They seem to have fallen out of vogue for some reason. Darren Rowse posted a “7 Link Challenge” that is just the thing to jump-start me out of my funk and back into this blog. But instead of things about myself, they are things about this blog…

Your first post

That would be My very first blog! Short, but it gives a brief explanation of why I started.

A post you enjoyed writing the most

Easter: The story is bigger than sin and hell shows what our best family devotions are like: a little nutty, and fun to re-read!

A post which had a great discussion

14 Reasons to Stop Evangelizing Your Friends prompted a lot of discussion, including some radio time.

A post on someone else’s blog that you wish you’d written

Chad Estes shares a lot of good stories, including Three Preachers and a Sinner meet up at a Party. (My daughter just read this over my shoulder and said, “It sounds like the beginning of a joke.”

Your most helpful post

This was actually a guest post on ChurchETHOS: Social Acceptance: A Missional Metric.

A post with a title that you are proud of

Heck, why not: Frank Zappa shows our evangelism sucks.

A post that you wish more people had read

Listening as a Spiritual Act may be one of the best things I’ve written that you’ve never read.

This was fun! Were any of these new to you?

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. I am new to your blog (and I love the name, by the way), so this post was a great way for me to jump right in and get to know you! I am planning to take the 7-link challenge on my own blog next week.
    I look forward to future posts from you!

  2. So is this the blog equivalent of a “clip show”? 🙂
    Loved the “Listening…” post!

  3. Melanie, it’s good to hear from someone new! And I’m glad this 7-link challenge was helpful. Please share yours once you post it.
    And I hope you’ll jump in and comment again!

  4. Joe,
    Heh. I had to look up “clip show” to understand what you meant. Ahh, like that ST:TNG non-episode during the writer’s strike, when Riker was delirious and having flashbacks. 🙂
    Glad you liked “Listening.” Pass it on!
