VC Weekly Worship - Epiphany 2006
I don't even know how to describe it.... It was simple, profound, moving, meaningful, normal, and hopeful all at the same time. I would love to reflect more on it... to talk about how it was a great start to what promises to be a very significant corporate spiritual practice for our community... or about how it was a wonderfully collaborative effort of many people using their gifts... or about how edifying it was to be in St. Elizabeth's worshiping in the footsteps of where others have worshipped for the last 103 years... or the wonderful food and hanging out afterwards... or so much more, but I'm really tired... drained actually.
I'm sure some readers would love to hear about "Why"... why is this organic network of house churches having weekly worship services?! I could ramble on and on about that, but it would be best to just listen to what Kevin, Janet, Thurman, and I shared yesterday at the gathering. We had a "Town Hall Meeting" where we addressed that question and more. The audio file is here (21 MB, 43 min.).
Some other folks might be curious as to "what exactly are you doing"? Well, here's our skeletal structure of our liturgy (the whole of our gathered time, our "work of the people" - which is what "liturgy" means):
Peace to you. Much Peace.

BibleGateway.com - Genesis 1:1-5
I'm back. This is a scripture that I've been reflecting on today. It is one of the upcoming week's lectionary readings and approrpriate for this New Year.
This New Year is full of vast expectations, hopes, dreams, and excitement... a few fears and worries (to be honest), but mostly good things.
Lots on my mind today... grieving for a friend's loss of a child (his neice and god-daughter), thinking about connectivism (a learning theory), trying to get back in the swing of school, excited about our upcoming VC weekly worship gatherings, and generally reflecting on the most significant events of the past year... something I'd like to spend some time on later.
I'm glad to be back blogging. Taking a break was good, though to be honest, I feel significantly "gun-shy" (which is a poor metaphor).
I've also been thinking about switching to WordPress... but need $166.00 for 2 years of hosting, which I don't have. Perhaps Ryan Hale could cut me a better deal? I'll have to ask (or maybe I just did).
Peace to you all as we ease into 2006. I excited to discover what God unfolds in and through us this year!

I Need a Blogging Break
I'll be exploring that funny little place where Technology and Faith intersect over at my school blog, if you want to join in on that conversation.

Blogging Policy and Ethic
Here are some links to how others have dealt with such things:
Leave It Behind > Brian Bailey: Fellowship Church Releases Blogging Policy:
Quotes I pulled from the above link -
"Personal Website and Weblog Policies
Some Fellowship Church employees who maintain personal websites and/or weblogs, or who are considering beginning one, have asked about the church's perspective regarding these sites. In general, we view personal websites and weblogs positively, and respect the right of our employees to use them as an avenue of self-expression and outreach.
As an employee of Fellowship Church, you are seen by our members and outside parties as a representative of the church. Therefore, as in all areas of daily life, a church staff member's personal website or weblog is a reflection on the church, whether or not the church is specifically discussed or referenced. If you choose to identify yourself as a Fellowship Church employee or to discuss matters related to the church on your website or weblog, please bear in mind that, although you may view your site as a personal project, many readers will assume you are speaking on behalf of the church.
In light of this possibility, Fellowship expects our staff to observe the following important guidelines:
Notify Your Supervisor.
Include a Disclaimer. - I work at Fellowship Church. Everything here, however, is my personal opinion and is not read or approved before it is posted. Opinions, conclusions and other information expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of Fellowship Church.
Respect the Church and its Staff.
Respect Your Time.
Respect Our Beliefs.
Follow the Employee Handbook.
Use Common Sense."
"Sample Blogger Code Of Ethics
1. I will tell the truth.
2. I will write deliberately and with accuracy.
3. I will acknowledge and correct mistakes promptly.
4. I will preserve the original post, using notations to show where I have made changes so as to maintain the integrity of my publishing.
5. I will never delete a post.
6. I will not delete comments unless they are spam or off-topic.
7. I will reply to emails and comments when appropriate, and do so promptly.
8. I will strive for high quality with every post – including basic spellchecking.
9. I will stay on topic.
10. I will disagree with other opinions respectfully.
11. I will link to online references and original source materials directly.
12. I will disclose conflicts of interest.
13. I will keep private issues and topics private, since discussing private issues would jeopardize my personal and work relationships. "
I am not suggesting either of the above. I would probably tweak both. I blog because I care about relationships. I care about connecting with the world around provocative and interesting ideas and topics. I blog because I want to build up (edify) the Body of Christ locally and globally. I blog because I need a place to reflect and have people interact (agree/disagree/push/pull/massage) things I think and say.
In an effort of full disclosure:
I am a follower of Jesus Christ
I am a pastor at Vineyard Central Church
I am a Teacher/IT Artist at Cincinnati Christian Schools
I am a husband to Sarah
I am a father to Cloanna
I went to Asbury College, Wilmore, KY
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, minor in Christian Ministries
I went to Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA
I am working on a Masters of Arts in Crosscultural Studies, concentrating on Contemporary Culture
I live in Cincinnati, OH (Pleasant Ridge)
I grew up in Paris, KY (near Lexington)
I care deeply about what people get from my blog. I care deeply about the students I teach and the people I pastor. I want my words to be ones of encouragement and hope, passion and peace.
"Carson Williams' two-story home is decorated top to bottom with 25,000 Christmas lights -- but that's just the beginning. He used software to program them to 12 minutes of Christmas music. The result is a dancing display of synchronized lights that he says you have to see to believe."

If I Have Offended
I have not intentionally tried to offend or to be offensive.
I mean for my blog to be a place of encouragement and confession, committment and reflection. I may, from time to time become emotionally engaged and passionate. I don't apologize for that. It is who I am and I believe actually a good thing. But if in my passion I have spoken harshly then I am sorry for that.
That said, if I have offended - I beg of you, please please please come talk to me about it. Atleast leave a comment, send an email, call me up, stop by .... something. Please, let's talk this through face to face. You would help me grow and you may see something in me that my mere words could not convey.
I hope I'm clear. If you are offended by anything you see here - ever - please let me know (constructively if possible).
Blessings to you all,
