A Prayer Request and a Question

I am feeling a bit like a deer in headlights right now. I feel lost, not sure where I am supposed to be right now, spiritually. I feel like I have been exposed by God to the reality that I do not carry over nearly enough into my entire life my Christian attitude. And he is challenging me to get that chugging along before getting involved in church leadership again.

This is very very provocative to me. I feel like there is something building right now in Revolution and at CLA, and I want to be a part of it. But God is telling me to lay back until my involvement at church is not my involvement with God, but rather a reflection, a mere portion of my involvement with God.

I feel like I have been hit by a fantastic upper cut. And I'm still in shock. So please pray for me, that I'll get out of this daze, and start demonstrating that God working through me does not mean merely being a leader at church, it means being a leader in my entire life.

Annnnnd, now for the question:

I'm feeling a little short on ideas to blog on (sort of). I think a lot. And I read a lot. But often I only feel like blogging when I have an idea truly thought out. I am considering blogging briefly on whatever I happen to be reading. Recently that has looked like:
  • The Shock Doctrine - Naomi Klein
  • Watchmen - Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons
  • Pagan Christianity - Frank Viola, George Barna
  • (and presently) The Tipping Point - Malcolm Gladwell
