Stuff I’ve Learned Through Blogging

1.  At least 10 other bloggers are saying the same thing.  I am not nearly as “cutting edge” as I thought I was.

2.  There is nothing new under the Sun.  I have found that people were writing and developing a “rural church” vision before I was born.   Their books and articles have been invaluable.

3.  I will offend someone no matter how unoffensive I try to be.

4.  Nuance does not translate well through the blog sphere.

5.  People reach “Rural Route Church” with funny searches like. . .”looking for a real cowboy”.

6.  Vanity can be measured by how many times one checks his/her “stats”.

7.  People like their point of view.  Really!

8.  Having the ability to edit or even delete people’s comments is a very good thing.

9.   Always check your facts before taking someone to task.  Embarrassing apologies could follow in the wake of a hasty post.

10.  There are a lot of people who are sincere in their desire to follow God’s call to a rural route somewhere.  I’m just glad some of them were able to stop by here every once in a while.

Coming Soon

I will be creating a new blog focusing exclusively on Rural Church ministry.  The launch date is January 1 and will highlight multiple authors and contributors.   (Hopefully some names you will recognize)  I would like to thank all of you who have stopped by Rural Route Church over the past couple of years.  I’ll see you in January!
