Walking Away from YMX
Yup, it is time. I have enjoyed my time in the forums but it is time for me to pack up my bags and move on. I have met a few great people on the boards. I will look forward to some of the communication on the blogs and at conventions where our paths may cross.
I have come to the conclusion that I am tired of dialogue and going in circles on certain subjects and butting heads with fellow Christians is just not worth it.
There have been a few topics lately that has spurred some debates and raised my blood pressure at times and I just can't / don't want to do it anymore. Issues on church, how to do you ministry, purpose of the church and etc are causing me to become fatique. Then there is the whole current events issues. I really only see eye-eye with a few people. Thus, I am going to remove my minor voice from the mix.
The latest threads on the church down the street (numbers), where to swim (deep or shallow) and what is the purpose of the church (few different threads) are the ones that have prompted this exit.
Once again, I thank you for the friendships. I thank you for challenging me. I thank you for showing me different perspectives ( though I have been where you are in most cases - so I do understand ).
May God continue to bless you (individuals) and your families and your ministries. God has called you for a specific ministry; may you reach that potential.
To YMX, thank-you for the vision and putting pieces together that came from the void of the YS forums. Besides the forums there are great things that you are doing and I hear there are many other things on your heart. May God bless you and may the ministry be fruitful. I will stop by the booth at NYWC.
Back to the Regular Schedule Program .... Whatever that means.
