But as I took a look at my blog stat's I realize in a way I have my own cyber pulpit.
On average about 200 people each week suffer though reading some of my posts. I know it's not huge, nothing to brag about, but I think that is a decent audience size. With larger audiences it makes it tough to connect with everyone. However, most people may not want to really connect anyway.
There are some differences though:
- I don't know how many of them drift off to sleep half way through my cyber-sermons and leave the page without getting the whole message.
- I don't mind if people get up and go to the bathroom, take a phone call, or reply to an email at any point.
- I welcome and encourage feedback. I love it when people comment. Even if it is just something short, and even when they disagree with me.
- I don't pass the plate before or after the message.
- I don't have to get dressed up in a suit.
- I regularly speak in tongues as this blog gets translated into many different languages around the world. I wonder if I make more sense in those other languages.
But I really don't want to view this as my cyber-pulpit. I'd rather view this as adding my voice to the conversation others are having. I don't claim to have more authority than anyone else on these topics.
And I really appreciate feedback and dialogue - here, on other blogs, other social media sites, and with real people in real life. :)
Please participate in the conversation somewhere. By doing so you will personalize and internalize what you believe.
And thanks for reading. :)
