New Group Blog
A note to my Calvinist friends: for me, the phrase "Old-School Non-Calvinism" is very tongue-in-cheek. It makes me smile because of all the labels that people I know try to slap on me. This week I have been called a Gnostic (on-line), and a friend came into my office at church ... while we were talking, he told me I was Arminian. Another good friend likes to tell me my thoughts are Semi-Pelagian. They are wrong because I don't hold to the distinctives of those teachings. I really hate labels, so when someone comes up with a non-traditional label, like "Old-School Non-Calvinism," it makes me laugh and I enjoy that.
I am looking forward to getting to know the commenters/friends that the other members will bring with them and the new people that will come around and get to know us all. I hope to learn something from my experiences there, as I have learned a lot from doing this blog here. I have really enjoyed "Rose's Reasonings". That has a lot to do with you all that read and participate here. I enjoy you all.
I will continue this blog. One thing about being a member of a group blog, I do not have to be the sole provider of reading material. It is really a small commitment.
I have had the priveledge of designing the graphics for the new blog, and that was a lot of fun for me.
Blogging really has taught me a lot. I have learned some about theology, human beings, and on-line graphics. Web graphics are a lot different than, say, opening up an Adobe illustrator or a Photoshop file and moving things around, adjusting type to get the desired look. No, with on-line graphics, one must deal with html code! In other words, you go into a big mess of type and try to figure out what it means and how you can change the look of what is on the page by changing a word or a percentage etc ... It is very hard for me to learn! (I am sure many, many of you know what I mean.)
For that matter, theology is very hard for me to learn also, at times.
For that matter, human beings are very hard for me to learn, as well! I love the human beings who frequent here and I enjoin you all to read the new blog. I think the combination of people could be a good balance, temperament-wise. It should be a good place to learn and discuss things about the Bible. That is why I have decided to accept the invite and do it. That is my agenda - to learn more about living this life as a Christian, theology, and God's people.
Why not take a look? Love to all of you!
