You wonder just how much this whole medium means anything, anything at all. Again, I wander around blogspace, and find that real dialog is absent. It's too easy to be catty, or snide, or impossibly obsure. Do real relationships form here, or, for that matter, anywhere else in the cybernetic ether?
It's hard enough to connect with another human being face to face. Ugh. Preaching is a case in point. I worry about whether I'm adequately conveying the message, bearing it over to folks so that they can both comprehend it and be moved by it. Not being utterly witless, I'm aware that my style verges on the academic, and my language is a bit--ooh--inaccessible at times. I think I've been self-correcting enough, but you can never be sure. I tend to--stupidly--just assume that people know what I know.
I've heard that folks are occasionally confused, or don't understand. If you don't understand--ask me! If it makes you struggle, ask. If you don't agree, challenge me! I won't mind! More importantly, I won't belittle. Our faith is made of important stuff, and it's not all easy. There's no shame in being confused. At least, I hope not. I often am.
