UNITE

What is UNITE?

Too often there is are divisions in the world.                                             0511-0805-0411-3121_People_Holding_afdafHands_Around_the_Globe_clipart_image

  • Rich/Poor
  • Educated/Not Educated
  • Black/White
  • Funny/Serious
  • Attractive/Not so attractive
  • Haves/Have not’s etc. etc.

Sadly, divisions can also take place with people of faith too.  (i.e. Non-Christian vs. Christians.  Denomination vs. Denomination. Doctrine against Doctrine.)

I read an article the other day that states….

98% of what Christian bloggers write is only read by other Christians.

My first thought was….“Oh no! I am a Christian blogger!”

And it stated…..Instead of evangelizing as initially intended….Christians can get caught up in our own talk, dialect, online club, non-Christians can’t relate to. 

And as much as I am one.  Turn to.  Read.  And love my fellow Christian bloggers. I don’t want my blog to be just another social circle.  Another place that excludes people.  A world where only “certain” people feel they can fit in.    

I want something more. I want a blog that is an open door. I want a blog that includes people of all denominations, all sects, all cultures. A broad array and spectrum and wide variety of people. 

Because I often wonder, how different are we from each other, really? After all, geneticists say all humans are 99.9 % the same.

And as I read God’s Word, I see.  Jesus did a few things….

  • Jesus stepped outside the church. The place Christian’s often feel most safe.
  • Jesus crossed all boundaries of economic status, religion, and race.
  • Jesus challenged us beyond the “us vs them” mentality.
  • Jesus, instead of waiting for non-Christian to enter the Synagogues of His day….Jesus went out and fearlessly engaged with “them”.
  • Jesus mingled with “unrespectable” people. Jesus found points of connections with “the least of these”.  All people.
  • Jesus didn’t just reside in Pharisee and Sadducee circles.
  • And ultimately, most importantly, above all else……..Jesus loved…...

And it is this great commandment that plagues my thinking….my heart and desire to help bloggers unite.  Whether….. 

  • A life long Christ follower.
  • A church pew warmer.
  • One who straggles in only on Christmas and Easter…..or….
  • One who never goes to church at all.
