Looking back is good. As someone wisely said “Those who don’t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it mistakes”. Or paraphrasing another person “Foolishness is repeatedly doing the same thing and hoping for different results”. We need to take time to reflect on where we have been in order to better consider where we may go.
I spent much of yesterday cleaning the kitchen and sorting the cupboards. There was quite a bit in there that past its “Best before” date, in some cases by years. Oh dear! So, a big clean out occurred. I wonder in my life, and yours, what was previously good is no longer at it’s best? Sometimes we need to throw out the old to make room for the new. As Jesus said, you can’t sew new fabric on old clothes without it tearing or put new wine in old wineskins without them bursting.
So, where does the path into 2022 lead? One thing personally I’ve been thinking about is the future of these blogs. They were originally done to chronicle 60@60 and raise awareness of the persecuted church. As I’m now 61 the original purpose is past so it would be really helpful if you’ve got a couple of minutes to inform my thinking for 2022 on whether and how to continue.
*Do you find these blogs interesting or not?
*If so, what content do you appreciate/would like to see more (or less) of?
*What’s a good level of frequency?
Thanks very much for taking the time to read and respond and may your own reflection back on 2021 be helpful.
