I never know if I should acknowledge how long it’s been since I’ve posted when I return from a hiatus…or if I should just try to slip back in, unnoticed.
But my friend Marilyn posted on my wall so the shame is already there.
I’ve been thinking a lot about mission statements and why businesses/people/organizations have them.
This is partly because I work for FOCUS and we have a Main Thing and a mission statement (and often I mix them up). But also because I’ve neglected blogging here for awhile now and it made me think about what the purpose of this blog even is.
This is not some drawn out finale letter, so don’t you worry.
I think I started blogging because I had opinions about things and I wanted to get them out in a safe space. Then I realized that I really enjoyed writing, so that was an added perk. And then it transformed into a nice little community of people who might actually be enjoying what they are reading.
So, I think this will be my blogging mission statement for my contributions on TCG’s blog:
To the best of my abilities I will use the gifts and talents that the Lord has given me to share Christ Jesus, His Church, and the Truth in a way that is encouraging and loving. I will use this blog as a tool in the New Evangelization to speak on Christ’s love and mercy in a way that is relatable and repeatable.
Short and sweet.
And maybe I’ll do these things on a more regular basis.
Thanks for sticking around!
PS: I’ve decided to finalize how I will sign all posts so there is some kind of continuity.
