A synchroblog with a twist…

Posted by on Oct 12, 2007 in blog links, synchroblog | 5 comments

Glenn from “re-dreaming the dream” and Erin from “Decompressing Faith” are planning a synchroblog for Monday, October 15, called “What Would Jesus Do… With the Church?” (You cann read Glen’s post here and Erin’s post here.) A synchroblog occurs when many different bloggers publish blog posts on the same day about the same subject. I have participated in two synchroblog (here and here), and I enjoyed each one.

Glenn and Erin have added a twist to this synchroblog. They want to go beyond writing about something, and actually do something:

In this synchroblog, not only do we ask you to address what you believe Jesus would do with the church; we also ask you to examine the implications for your own life and ACT on it. It is easy to sit at our computers and rail against the church; it is much more challenging to assume personal responsibility for change.

Therefore, we would invite to this synchroblog anyone who is willing to put “shoe leather” to a complaint, correction or change you would like to see for the church, whatever your interpretation of ‘church’ happens to be. It doesn’t have to be huge…simply anything you’re willing to commit to for a period of 30 days.

Please write an initial post for October 15th. Then, post periodically over the following 30 days (October 15-November 15) with any additional thoughts and reports on your progress.

I hope that I will be able to take part in this synchroblog. I’m going to talk to family about the topic this weekend, and together I hope we can come up with something to write about and do differently. Perhaps others of you will be able to take part as well. If you want to take part, just leave a comment for either Glenn or Erin on their posts.
