What I want to know: how did you & Heather know that this is what God is calling you to?
I'm not asking as a challenge... no ulterior motive... I"m just genuinely interested in how God-following people discern his guidance.
I ask the question whenever I can b/c it's fascinating how God illuminates his will to different people. Because THAT is the crucial element of really knowing when to jump and when to stay, right?
I've been on twitter for about a year and a half. There are relationships (both personal and professional) that I am able to maintain daily purely because of twitter, so there's no question that it has become valuable to me.
I think there's an angle to objection #10 ("I don't know how to get started") that's worth mentioning. It is definitely easier to get started, and to 'get' it generally, if you jump into twitter with a group of people you are already connected to in some way. I was fortunate to be dragged? pushed? encouraged? to start twittering by Randy Elrod just before the re:create conference in 2008. This immediately linked me into an existing community of sorts. I can't imagine jumping into twitter blind, without some kind of community to begin following (and be followed by). Especially now that the entire twitter world has expanded so greatly.
I'm probably going to have to perform TWO acts of kindness today because of my random-act-of-revenge in response to my senior pastor's shenanigans today.
Does NOT filling someone's car with shaving cream count?
Today I read your post and was SO relieved to find that you went exactly the same place that I went during my mental eye rolling.
So thanks for that. And sorry for the eye-rolling. I should know better.
