Starting a Journey

For past few months I have been in the process of starting a new journey – that is Journey Fellowship Church. Stacy and I have dreamed about this for a long time and we know that this is the next adventure for our lives. I’ve been blogging over at Wonderingfellow.com since 2003. I haven’t blogged there consistently for a while while I was in Seminary. Just not enough time. But blogging for me is a great way to record my memories to go back and look at later, to let my friends and family know what’s going on with me, but more importantly to share my journey.

My first blog on Wonderingfellow included a passage that I still believe and that I think is interesting given the name of the church and even my comments here. I went back and was surprised to find this part of the entry:

I don’t have it figured out! I wish I did!! I’m OK. I love my life, which is more than I used to be able to say. I’m on a journey – not a journey of self-discovery or a journey of perfectionist baloney. Let’s just say I’m on a journey.

I’m a lot farther along in my journey. I have found healing, new lifelong friendships, great love and great strength to share my journey since I first wrote those words. But I’m still on a journey – one that I love and one that I want to share!

That is what Journey Fellowship is about – our journey.

So I’m going to talk about my journey here as we launch this church sometime in 2012. I hope that you’ll join me here and find what I share to be interesting and at times, hopefully, inspiring to think about and encourage your own journey.
