Connecting the Dots in an Unconnected World

Why ?

Today, I am beginning a new journey into the blogosphere. I must confess that I do so with a high level of trepidation. I find myself wondering if there is a need for another blogger and do I have something to say worth reading. However, for the journey to be completed it must first be begun. So I begin.

The title for this blog is “Connecting the Dots in an Unconnected World.” Surely, we are living in a world that seems to be unconnected. Many lives lack direction, guidance, and meaning. Admittedly I do not have all of the answers for the challenges that people are facing in our day. But, I shall endeavor to deal with the many questions that life proposes to us.

Because I am pastor of the Southside Baptist Church in Sarasota, Florida (and proud to be her pastor) I will share from time to time events and experiences that will reflect that commitment. I will, at times, share my heart and convictions. I will, at times, reflect upon Southern Baptists (again, of whom I am proud to be part) and how we are handling our responsibilities to reach the world with the gospel. I will, at times, share my personal commentary on world, national, and local events.

It is my plan to post at least once each week. Because it is my conviction that the words of others can shape our lives I will, in each post, share a quote that has impacted my life in a positive way.

Attempting to connect the dots…

Romans 1:16

“You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.”
