Last Monday, I started a chain blog about dealing with traditionally divisive issues among the church. (See my post “Chain Blog: Dealing with Divisive Issues Introduction.”) I didn’t know if people would be interested in the concept of a “chain blog” or in this topic, but I have been very pleased and encouraged by the response so far!
So far, six more bloggers (for a total of 7!) have written “links” in this chain blog, and each link is somehow related to the topic of dealing with divisive issues. However, each link is also different from each other.
Here are the “links” so far:
1. “Chain Blog: Dealing with Divisive Issues Introduction” by Alan
2. “Chain Blog: Dealing with divisive issues starts with love” by Arthur
3. “I am divisive” by Jeremy
4. “Chain Blog: Please agree with me” by Jon
5. “Division and our shared humanity” by Andy
6. “Chain Blog: solving the problem” by Bobby
7. “Divisiveness: Acts 2 & Ugly Carpet” by fallenpastor
If you have not written a post for the chain blog yet, but would like to, simply jump over to the last post in the chain and tell people that you’re writing the next post (in the comments).
My first post was really just an introduction to the topic, so I plan to write another “link” in the chain. If you wrote an earlier link in the chain, feel free to add another post as well.
This is a very important issue. I think the church must face this issue and admit that while we are united in Christ we are actually living divided and divisive lives (in general).
Chain blog rules:
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 the previous post 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.
