OK . . . I admit I have not blogged for a while, preferring my small intimate group of friends on Facebook, who do not beat me up so badly with nasty comments, and if they do, I know who they are.
But I do want to both acknowledge and celebrate this blog that started June 5, 2001 when I was living in Prague.
The first ten years this blog proved quite popular because it dealt with my global travels and the new emerging movements of young entrepreneurs doing things differently, in particular in the Christian missions world. The last ten years there was less interest in innovation because the church was in a period of refining, getting rid of horrible abusive leaders and systemic problems in the wider church world.
But I feel we are about to enter a new phase – a post-Covid entrance into a world which will again stimulate that entrepreneurial spirit, a moment that was both prefaced by the innovations 20 years ago but also novel . . . and offering new challenges to rise to.
And for that reason, I choose to keep this blog going. To not only track some of the most compelling movements in global Christianity, but to also offer some perspective from the past.
To those of you who have tracked with me for 20 years, and some of you even longer on my 90’s blog, I thank you for your journey with me and being my friend.
Let’s move into the next phase together.
