I know that this is going to sound funny, but I’m feeling pretty religious this week. I’ve never tried to hide who I am on Charlie. I never curse on the site, never discuss anything that could be crude or sexual, and I’m pretty open about my beliefs. Then again I’ve never really gone out of my way to proclaim them either. With all of the good fortune that has been blessed upon my family and I lately, I’ve stumbled onto an idea that I can’t shake loose. It’s gnawing away at me like an itch in the middle of my back that I just can’t seem to reach. What I have decided to do is bounce the idea off of you my loyal readers. I know you guys hate it when I beg for comments, but this could do some good for quite a few people and you’re opinion would really mean something.
Currently I am writing for 3 websites, have made connections that could send extra work my way with 2 local papers, I’m being considered to start writing a weekly article in a one of the two, I’m also working on another major deal that has a strong potential of paying off big….plus I have the day job. After all is said and done, I don’t seem to have much time to goof like I used to. My time with Fred and Lucy is extremely valuable to me and I try really hard to not let the freelance stuff get in their way. Thankfully most of the time I succeed at giving my family the time they deserve. Still though, this idea won’t leave me alone.
Here it is:
I’m thinking about starting religious blog that would highlight the local churches and give people a place to find some good news for a change. I live near a Bible college and there are tons of churches in my area (that’s kind of a sad thing). My plan would to get together a collection of Preachers that would email me their sermons and possibly their weekly bulletins. I would then post the sermons on the web. I could also gather stories from the web that show God in action and I could set up an email address where people would be able to send prayer requests that would also be posted. It would require very little new material from myself; help spread the Word of God, and just might help somebody. I would just be the person putting it all together in one spot.
What do you guys think? Yea or Nay? This could be a way for me to really do some good. Leave me a comment and voice your opinion
