With the launch of the new blog –
Marriage and Family in the Kingdom of God [Editorial note, December 2016: I’ve since folded said blog into the main blog, A Spiritual Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom, adding “Marriage and Family” as a “category” there.] – I’ve tweaked the name of this blog from Leadership in the Kingdom of God to
Christian Leaders and the Kingdom of God
with a subtitle of
Not lording it over them, but serving like the youngest of them.
– Luke 22:25-26
If you’ll read
the first post of the new blog [see “Editorial note above], you’ll see why it allows me to slightly change the name of this blog and now return it to its original purpose: speaking to Christian leaders. (Note that the URL, which has never changed during the life of the blog, is “blogforthelordjesuschristianleaders.”
By “Christian leaders,” I mean pastors, preachers, teachers, ministers, bishops, popes, elders, overseers, or any other position of leadership associated with the name of Christ.
By “tweaking” the name of the blog, I’m referring to the last change I made to the name. In that post, I described a return to speaking to Christian leaders, but I also said I felt responsible to write for Christian parents in that regard as well, since they were leading children.
By the way, I don’t expect all of you to care about the history of this blog. I only lay it out for those who are interested, and for whom it might be relevant when searching prior content. (After all, I’ve been writing at least one post a day on this particular blog since March 4, 2010. So there’s a lot of content to navigate.)
I was in professional full-time ministry for 15 years, and I look forward to being able to speak more directly to those who hold positions like I did. I am also interested in speaking to those of you who, whether in ministry or laity, who want to see the light of Christ shine brighter and spread farther.
