Chain Blog on the Topic of Peace

Posted by on Aug 21, 2008 in chain blog | 2 comments

I’ve enjoyed getting to know some of my blog readers through email and by getting together in person. One of the people that I’ve “talked” with through email is Christopher from “Wotsup with Da Man CD” and “Daily Thoughts with Chris Dryden“. (So, do you prefer Chris instead of Christoper?)

A few days ago, Chris(topher) suggested that I start a “chain blog” on the topic of peace. If you are not familiar with the concept of a “chain blog”, you can read my post “Chain Blog – A Proposal” and the first chain blog which starts with the post “City Church – A Chain Blog” (Scroll to the bottom of that post for more “links” in the “chain”).

So, I plan to begin a new chain blog on Monday, August 25, on the topic of peace. Please consider writing one of the links in this chain on the topic of peace and a follower of Jesus’ understanding about and actions toward peace. This can be an individual or communities peace with God. It could be peace between individuals or peace among a community. It could also be political peace – as in, the opposite of war. Someone could also discuss the relationship between peace, unity, fellowship, and community, among other terms.

These are the rules of the chain blog (I will write the first post (link) on Monday):

1) If you would like to write the next blog post (link) in this chain, leave a comment stating that you would like to do so. If someone else has already requested to write the next link, then please wait for that blog post and leave a comment there requesting to write the following link.

2) Feel free to leave comments here and discuss items in this blog post without taking part in the actual “chain”. Your comments and discussion are very important in this chain blog.

3) When you write a link in this chain, please reply in the comments of all previous links to let everyone know that your link is ready. Also, please try to keep an updated list of links in the chain at the bottom of your post, and please include these rules at the bottom of your post.

The last chain blog was very informative and fun. I hope many of my readers decide to take part.

    On the crucial issue of the hour, I’m equally comfortable with Chris or Christopher. I love the latter as that is my name and my mother’s always keen on calling me that.

    I recognise however that three syllables and 11 letters is a long way to go for people in a rush so Chris has been more than fine for me.

    The more I reflect on it the more I love the Christopher because of what the name means and what my particular burden has been be what my name means.

    I am licking my lips and rubbing my hands in great anticipation of what I’m about to receive on Monday!
