Looking Forward to 2014

My friend, Sean Palmer, wrote a blog post last year talking about the importance of making goals instead of making New Year’s resolutions.

This year, I am following his advice.

I have made several goals and written them down. I am not going to share all of them with you, but I will share one.

I want to make better use of my blog. My goal is to write and post more consistently.

This is where I would like your help: what would make this blog beneficial for you? What topics would you like me to address? For those of you who have been reading, what can I do better?

My desire for my blog is to address issues focusing on the themes of grace and community. I also wish to address how privilege affects all of us; whether we are among the privileged or the oppressed. Since this last year provided a transition from finishing my Master’s degree to starting my new career, I would like to address issues surrounding the economy and job market—specifically here in Abilene.

January 1 is an arbitrary day for new beginnings, yet it is an arbitrary day recognized by most as the beginning of a new year. I am striving to make this year one in which I can make a difference. I want this year to be one in which I help build up the Kingdom of God.

I want it to be a year of loving and serving others.

I want to share my story with you; and have you share your stories with me.

I look forward to this next chapter of my journey. I appreciate all who walk along with me.

God bless you in 2014!

  1. Sweet action Paul! I’m attempting the same goal with my blog, The Commitment Project. Only I’ve tried like six other blogs before. I’m going to make sure that I’m consistent with writing before advertising the new blog too much. But you can check it out if you like. Blessings! Great to see you Sunday
