The last couple of weeks have been busy. Corina and I spent 4 days in San Antonio at the Southern Baptist Convention, and I have spent all this week in Louisville for a 10-hour-a-day J-term on leadership.
The neat thing about these two weeks has been getting to meet some of you… my readers and fellow bloggers. Several times in San Antonio, I met people who, after hearing my name, said, “I read your blog!” This week in Louisville, I’ve met some more readers, including some fellow bloggers like Andy Atkins, Brandon Rogers, Chip Crush, Owen Strachan, and Reid Moneghan.
Meeting people in person that you have come across online is a neat experience. For me, it has been humbling. Humbling to know that nearly 300 people a day take the time to visit my site and read what I post. Humbling to know how little I deserve someone’s time. Humbling to know how early-on I am in ministry and how much I have to learn, and yet people are gracious enough to accompany me on the journey and disagree with me when I’m in error. Humbling to know that in a few years, I will probably be embarrassed by some of the immature ramblings or unripe theology on my blog today, warts that – because I’m still growing – I can’t see yet.
So… as I head back to Tennessee this weekend to celebrate my 26th birthday and my son’s 3rd… I look ahead, hoping that Jesus will continue to grow sweeter to me daily and that I keep growing in grace, humility, and wisdom.
