5 posts in 2 years! Boom!
Yeh – I’ve not yet found my inner blogger – something which I’m hoping to change. I really like the idea of blogging as a means of helping me grapple with issues and think things through (as I said in my first post). But I think I’m also worried about writing something stupid! If you know me at all, you’ll know there is a very good chance of that happening! And so I don’t want to write anything until I have worked out exactly what I think, why I think it, and what objections might be brought by others to my thoughts. All this of course means that I never write anything!
So going forward, I’m going to try and write more, regardless of whether I’m 100% convicted and confident about what I’m saying. Thats not to say that I’ll be glib, or negligent in my thoughts, but rather most of what I write will be processes rather than conclusions. The point is that writing is meant to help me think things through, rather than publish my golden thoughts for the world to read (hence it being a little light on the posts around here!)
I said this in my opening post:
‘So – welcome to my head! I know its a little bit scary and empty in here, but hopefully it will fill up with thoughts, ideas and reflections on the books I read, the films I watch and the games I play. All of these thoughts will be from an unashamedly Christ-centred worldwide. These are my thoughts, and I reserve the right to change my mind and most importantly…. to be wrong!‘
So fist observation – it turns out my head is emptier than I thought! But secondly, I had forgotten that it is ok to be wrong, as long as you’re open to discussion and developing your understanding. If someone disagrees with something I’ve said, I hope they will engage with me on the issue so I can learn – chances are I will have changed my mind about whatever it is anyway!
Well – this is a bit of a pointless post which I may delete, but I just had to write something to spur me on!
Here’s to future blog posts!
