If it seems like I’m spending less time here it’s because (1) I am busy and (2) I am consciously trying to spend more time engaging with bloggers beyond my “social network” bubble. You see, I can’t help reflecting on the itinerate lifestyle of Jesus. Consider how Mark records it:
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Simon and his companions went to look for him, and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!” Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
In effect, if I want to be more Christ-like as a blogger, the last thing I should be doing is waiting for everyone to come to me. That’s not to say home bases are bad. Jesus had Caperneum. But it does strongly suggest we should not become too attached to them.
