Something Different. The @stickyJesus Group Blog Project!

The first time I heard about @stickyJesus was from Twitter bud Kim Cash Tate. My first thought was, what in the world is @stickyJesus? This calls for an investigation!

Well, what I discovered was wonderfully refreshing, and right on time. Sticky Jesus co-founders Tami Heim and Toni Birdsong sum it it like this: “Sticky Jesus exists to equip you, the Christ follower, to confidently live out your faith in the digital world. We’re here to infuse biblical perspective and daily inspiration into your online time. We’ll help you grow your technical know-how so you can share the sticky love of Jesus Christ with others. We’re teaching, listening, and collaborating with a fired-up community of digital scribes about culture, social media, and the kind of relationship building that will outlive cyberspace. Are you in?”

Say what? Am I in? I’m all the way in.

So much so, I signed up for the @stickyJesus group blog project! Yep, I jumped right in to something different. Here is the project: 16 people, including moi, have agreed to lead blog discussions through the book @stickyJesus- How to live out your faith online, co-written by Tami Heim and Toni Birdsong.

Now, do I have blogging experience? Nope! (well, not unless you consider one post experience). While blogging experience wasn’t  a requirement to join the project, I checked out a couple of my fellow bloggers’ sites; and all I can say is, WOW!  I’m out in the deep!
Oh, and did I mention that all the fine folks I talk about here, I met on Twitter! mmm, humph– something differeeeent!

If you are asking God to enlarge your territory to make an impact for Him, be open and be ready to DO something different. You may feel like a fish out of water but, He’s got your back!

Is God leading you to do something different?  Have you done it?  What did you discover?

Check out the @stickyJesus group blog discussion. Here is day 1.

Pink Pearls, Praying for A Cure. My first blog

About a month ago, I was watching a commercial that flashed images of women smiling and cheering; some were running, others were walking arm in arm, and some had tears. When the commercial ended, I remember saying aloud, “I want to be apart of that-I want to do that.” Well, that commercial was for the 2011 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

Two weeks after seeing the commercial and making my declaration, I received an email that said, “As you all know, I am in treatment for breast cancer, and believe me when I say, this is no joy ride, but we must all endure a “Job” experience at some point…You can ease the burden for many yet to be diagnosed with this awful disease.  I would love for you to join my team “Pink Pearls” and walk with us, but if you are not able to join, your generous donation is extremely appreciated.” Brenda Dantzler-Mitchell.

After I regained consciousness, I realized two things: (1) the news that Brenda, a woman I would see and greet at Sunday Worship, was battling breast cancer, and (2) the divine timing of her email. Was God giving me a personal invitation  to join Him where He was working?
Even with divine intervention, I still waited another two weeks before I worked up the courage to call Brenda and ask her if I could document her story (fear is crippling!). Brenda graciously agreed to the idea. Although I am not formally trained in journalism or film, I had to capture Brenda’s story to the best of my ability.  Please support the cause!
