watch what you (don't) write

so after a weekend of speaking at two different venues, someone told me that even though we'd never met she was a reader of my blog posts [thanks da :)]. who knew? i figured that this was more or less just an opportunity for me to jot the occasional thought for internet posterity.

so i guess that i'd better make it more of a habit to put my thoughts out on cyberspace ... who knows who's paying attention.

a quick reflection from The Republic's last event, called Reverie: i had a great conversation with a woman who was walking off to a completely different appointment when she (her words) felt drawn in to our gathering. granted, we had the large pane glass sliding windows open at the coffee shop so that music could waft over the adjacent park, but still - and when she joined our company there, she felt almost moved to tears.

i couldn't have planned or orchestrated that. it was a divine moment for her. and without having to discuss faith or spiritual journeys or religion, she was ministered to by God.

that's what it means to present the Gospel without having to say a word.

we are the message.

  1. Yes, Patrick. You never know who's reading from afar! Great story about being available to others who are ready to experience God, and how stealthily He works. Good on you for getting back to your blog and "internet posterity." It was great meeting you in person. Now to get my other target to get back to his blog :o)
