As have many of you who blog, we at DisciplesWorld have struggled with keeping our blog updated and with an even more basic question: what do we want this blog to be?

A new year is as good a time as any for a fresh start, so here goes. We’ve decided that the best use of our blog is to point our faithful readers in the direction of what we find interesting and newsworthy. That will include posts by other Disciples bloggers on their blogs, individual and congregational news from around the web, and sometimes, general religious or cultural items of interest.

We may also use the blog to float article ideas for upcoming issues, to ask our readers what you think about certain topics, and to let you know what we’re working on. 

Occasionally, we’ll also post our own opinions, musings, photos, and the “story behind the story,” as we’ve done in the past.

Hopefully this resolution won’t go the way of the grapefruit diet, daily journaling, and the promise to keep the inside of my car clean.
