Hello, Oi, Bonjour, Hola, Gutten Tag, Hi, Namaste, Salaam, Bog, Shalom, Bonjou
I have spent most of my life living among people who were not like me. One of the first things I had to learn is how to greet people.
The other morning at church as I was passing out programs a little boy reached out to give me a fist pump. While I had been shaking hands and saying good morning to people, this little guy had another way of greeting people.
Connections begin with greetings, so today I want to bring you greetings and tell you about a new blog that I am launching which I believe will make your life better.
Why another blog?
Somewhere in the middle of 2016, I began to pull away from the world. I saw myself getting less interactive with people as it seemed that everywhere I turned I saw people shooting at others with either words or bullets. As a result, I avoided the news and stayed away from Social Media.
It wasn’t long before I decided that this was not the way to live. I needed to do my part to change the hostile and divisive environment that had become so dominant in our world. As a result, the I decided to launch CONNECTIONS: A blog designed to help people connect with God and each other.
In addition to the blog, there is a Facebook page.
You can subscribe to the blog by clicking HERE. This will guarantee that every week when I post new material that you will get it in your email to read when you want.
You can follow the Facebook content HERE. This page will have a variety of material to encourage you to love God and others. For example, today you will find more on greetings.
I look forward to connecting with you!
Hugs, handshakes, kisses and a big wave goes out to you today. Hopefully, you will greet me by subscribing to my blog.
Looking forward to receiving your emails. May God bless this blog and may you reach a lot people with the words of wisdom that I know it will come to all of us.
Thank you, Ivana. I am also asking God to bless and use this blog for His glory.
I’m looking forward to more messages here. I pray that we can connect more with God and other people through this Blog. May God bless you to keep the good work.
Thank you very much! That is my prayer. There is too much hate and division in the world. My next post comes out tomorrow.
Mark, I know I will eagerly anticipate your messages of hope.
Eric, Thank you for the note.
