Rebel Storytellers

"And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings." 
–Meister Eckhart

I haven't blogged regularly in so long that I wonder how many people will ever see this. I could probably post almost anything and not experience any repercussions. Let's see, where did I leave all my nudie pics ... oh, that's right, they're back in 2005.

I started blogging on here 9 years ago. Almost to the day. There have been ups and downs. Strange controversies and moments of clarity. I've made friends through this blog. Some became my best friends. Some I've still never met in person. I've done the best work of my life on this blog (The Church Experiment), and I've had shameful moments where I've chosen self-promotion over humility. I look back at times and cringe, and I look back at times and feel immense pride.

If you've been with me since the beginning, thank you. I loved blogging. I loved interacting with readers. From day one, it has been a great joy to share this tiny space on the Internet with you.

I'm writing this final post to let you know what I'm up to these days. I've been collaborating with the folks at Rebel Pilgrim for the past two months in order to create a new space on the Internet intended to spark hope and action in others. Our tribe of storytellers longs to help people get "unstuck" from whatever is holding them back in life. We'd like to inspire folks to pursue their dreams.

Check out Rebel Storytellers at Poke around. Read my posts, but be sure to read what others are creating too. I am so proud of our work, and I'd love for all of you to join us on this new adventure.
