A Different Kind Of Post
The post that you are about to read is different.
I know, a new blog design and a different kind of post all in one week!
“REEL IT BACK EDEN, THIS IS TOO MUCH FOR US!!”
Promise, this is a one time thing.
This post, it’s definitely unlike anything I’ve posted on here before and something that I thought long and hard about before posting here at all. As most of you know, I’m the founder of a nonprofit in my area. When starting any nonprofit, one of the biggest tasks is integrating yourself into the community and letting people know that you are here. When our organization first started out I was asked to come speak to a woman’s bible study and let them know what we were doing. We are are not a religious group but I myself am a Christian and I thought it would be a neat opportunity to share a little bit about how I felt God was working in my life, so I jumped at the chance.
I went, I spoke, and before I knew it I was receiving invitations from other churches of all denominations to come and share my story in front of their congregations as well, and so I did, over, and over again.
Today I would like to share that story with you.
Now as I said, I thought long and hard about whether or not to post this here. While I take a pretty strong stance on many subjects in this blog, I’ve avoided any heavy religious posts because I want everyone to feel welcome here, regardless of their religious or non religious preferences, and the last thing I want to do is to start a religious based riot.
You know those super loud Bible beating Christians who not only try to forcefully convert people, but who also think that everyone who doesn’t fit into a tiny little box labeled “Christianity” is going to hell?
Yea I’m not one of those people.
Not even close.
This is about me and because this is my blog, and because this is Easter I’ve been thinking a lot about this part of my life. Despite what your beliefs are and religion aside, I think that the underlying lesson that I’ve learned is something that we can all draw upon. I’ve decided to post below the story that I have shared with hundreds upon hundreds of people before you in hopes that it may mean something to you as well.
I promise I’m not trying to convert you.
If you are feeling particularly anti-Christian today or are just not in a place where you feel able to hear about God right now, well then I’m just going to give you a great big hug, let you skip the rest of this post, and I’ll see you on Tuesday with a new post. Should you choose to stay and read, I just ask that you extend the same courtesy that I am extending to you all and to not judge, dissect, or trash my beliefs in the comments section.
We are all adults, we can keep this civil right?
So without further ado, I bring you a cut and paste of my story:
