Like yesterday… gone

If you’re looking for me here, all you will find are vestiges of the past.

As of December 6, 2009, I’m now frolicking at my new location: www.joecarr.us.

Come join me in the present!

Black Friday

Drats!

I meant to be up at 3:00 a.m. to make the 4:00 a.m. Black Friday opening of the stores this morning.

Now my whole Christmas is ruined…

Not!

Makeover

This space has served me well.

Having no clue what the word “blog” even meant three years  and over 1200 posts ago, WordPress has made it extremely easy to delve into the wonders of online thought-casting.

I’ve known for a while that I needed to graduate to a more robust platform but have delayed doing so. I’ve enjoyed riding my spider bike! But, with all the changes swirling around me, I’m in need of a knarley Harley.

So, I’m in the process for prepping new space. By the time I head to Brazil before Christmas, joecarr.us will be live and will take over the responsibilities from joecarr.wordpress.com. The new site is up and is mirroring this one. If you subscribe, you may want to go ahead and make the change. The new site will still see multiple changes before the official switch, but it is fully active now.

I’ll warn you a couple of times over the next few weeks.

I can’t afford to lose both of my readers (thanks mom and dad!).

Confused or Bewildered?

In looking at my statistics today, I saw that one of the primary search terms on Google that bring folks to this site is “bewildered.”

I think that’s rather appropriate.

Up periscope

Maybe I should at least occasionally put in a random post when I seemingly “go dark” for no particular reason.84872174

Thank you for being so concerned! Just incredibly busy to the point of being overwhelmed from waking til sleeping. I see light at the end of the tunnel. As always, I’ve got lots to say, just having difficulty being able to sit down to have time to pen it (or type it).

As my buddy Bob always says, “so, what is the ‘therefore’ ” from this note:

Be careful of the man who is silent!

What Jesus meant to say…

I was toying with a topic the other day when a blog that I follow popped up that had already dealt with the same issue.

Joey Shaw over at strategicnetwork.org (good blog Joey! Go check him out!) posted “5 Common Great Commission Myths.” While I’m not going to reproduce it here (though it is a temptation!), his main points were:

Myth #1: Accidental discipleship — simply “doing life” with others is the way to make disciples: “If they ask me, I’ll tell them.”

Myth #2: Crossing cultures is a step beyond the general mandate, i.e., only select missionaries are called to cross cultures in order to make disciples.

Myth #3: Jesus wants converts.

Myth #4: When I am ready and able, I will start making disciples.

Myth #5: Making disciples is great advice.

Who’s following YOU on Twitter?

I must be putting out some really interesting stuff on Twitter!
