connections real and virtual
Conversations are life for me, and had a number of them with people here at The Vine. And, even a few of them are bloggers: Ray Levesque (Salmon House), Kami Rice (The Coffeehouse Journals), Nancy Chan. Ray and his wife Liz are doing a phenomenal work with New Gatherings, connecting those Native Americans (aka those in First Nations cultures) who are following God in the way of Jesus; and for them, it is not helpful to be known as Christians. And I’m told, the Christian label and the Messianic Jew label are also not helpful for that community of Jesus followers.
Hyperlinks are worth a few more brownie points than mention of names, in the commodity of search engine page rankings. So, while I’m somewhat grateful for John Musick (of Bluer) for mentioning my being a part of a podcast with him, and mentioning my URL even, it’d be worth so much more if he would have hyperlinked me.
