An Update, Some Changes, And More

Things finally seem like they’re returning back to normal a little bit after my trip to Africa.  I’m finally finishing those all-important follow-ups that need to take place after every trip.  I’ll post my summary of the trip in this space some time soon, after I get the hard copies mailed out to those who prayed and financed our trip.  Thanks for your patience as I’ve processed this trip and adjusted to being back here in the States.

After I get some of the Africa posts up, my hope is to continue to develop material here that will serve the church as it continues to progress into an apostolic family preparing for the end of the age.  The Lord spoke to me about several aspects key to this process while I was in Africa and I hope to share some of those insights when time permits.

One of the new things that you’ll begin to see here is the integration of this blog with Google+.  I’ve been impressed with the way Google built Google+ for sharing and privacy simultaneously and my hope is that I can use it to add a layer of interactivity to the blog.  Some of the content that I’ve been writing that really isn’t about Jesus, the Kingdom, the apostolic church, etc will find it’s way to my public wall on Google+.  If you want to see what else I’m writing about, you can simply by clicking here.

But what I’m most excited about is Google+’s “Hangouts,” which are really large group video chats.  My goal is to eventually have a time once a month in a “Hangout” where those of us who are following the Lord in the ways described here can join a “Hangout” and have face to face conversations.  Google+ has some significant advantages over Twitter and Facebook and I think it might be worth your time to check it out.  If you need an invite to Google+, email me at and I will send you an invite. (By the way, if you add me to one of your circles in Google+, make sure you let me know you’re from the blog, so that I can add you to the right circle.)

Well, that’s enough updates for now. We’ll take a stab at these changes, see how they work, and make some more from there.
