Lately, I’ve been thinking about how I can serve my readers better.
On my blog (and throughout life), I strive to be transparent because I know that transparency is the only way to help others.
Truly, if we are to be an encouragement to one another, we need to be real. We need to draw alongside one another knowing that none of us have it all together, recognizing that God has given each of us beautiful nuggets of truths that we can collectively benefit from, all of which spurs us on toward Christ-likeness.
Following Jesus can be difficult at times (and anyone who tells you otherwise is either greatly deceived or hasn’t been walking with Jesus long).
The truth is, we need each other.
I am called to share my heart with you. I know this much. Yet, I’m still trying to figure out what that looks like and how to serve you well.
So, here’s the thing. We all need community. We all need a place to be heard and an opportunity to hear and help others.
And I thought a forum (added to this blog) might be the place to start.
The forum would be a place to ask those tough questions and get godly council. Yet, I wouldn’t be the only one responding to posts. (I think I’ve already established the fact that I don’t have it all together nor do I have all the answers.) But instead, it would be my desire for the forum to become a community of believers who encourage one another.
It would be a place where my readers could interact with one anther and provide loving support and encouragement through prayer and godly council.
Truly, we’re all in this thing together.
So, what do you all think?
Should I open a forum on my blog? Would you participate? Your participation doesn’t have to be consistent, of course.
At this point, I’m trying to discern whether or not a forum would benefit each of us, which I will gage by the comments (or lack of comments) received. If there’s quite a bit of interest, I will move forward. If not, I won’t bother, and we’ll leave things just as they are. So, be sure to give me your opinion one way or another!
Question: What do you think? Consider leaving a comment. How might I serve my readers better? Would you like to participate in an open dialogue forum on my blog?
