Writing can help keep my mind focused. Sometimes. I do tend to get distracted by semantics and grammar. In this setting, that could be like focusing more on what I'll wear to church rather than my reason for being there. But I've felt a nudge to do this, to try and articulate the mishmash of thoughts on my spiritual growth in a print forum. In January 2013, when I started my first blog, I wondered if it should be for a Christian audience. Sometimes there were just things I wanted to say, but that space didn't seem to be the right one for them. It's not that my faith is a secret; most of the few who've been reading it know me. Maybe it was because I created that one primarily to work on the craft of writing. I really didn't have a plan for it beyond that. So I waited. The nudges kept coming.
I've been reading some Christian blogs. Generally they don't attract large audiences. Maybe that's how it should be. Maybe this space is mostly for me to explore my faith thoughts, and the audience beyond myself and God will be none. But I'm going to put this out there into cyberspace because I need to start somewhere. May as well start here.
