You found it!
You found our very first blog post!
And, now that you're here, chances are you're wondering why we wanted you here.
Well, here's what we've noticed (and maybe you've noticed the same). There are a lot of people out there giving advice about how to be more missional (joining God in various parts of his mission in the world). And a lot of those people have amazing things to say. We follow quite a few of them, and maybe some day we'll share some of our favorites with you.
But, we decided something was missing. Not completely absent. But not as present as we think it should be. And that thing is stories. Real life stories from real life people trying to live out this whole missional lifestyle.
Now, we want to get one thing straight right out of the gate: We are far from perfect, and our attempts sometimes fail...miserably. But we think that is part of what will make this blog so great.
Our goal with this blog is to bring you real stories from our own lives (and maybe from the lives of other people too). We're going to share some of the things we have found very helpful. And we're going to share some of the things we found very unhelpful. And we'll make sure you know which is which.
We don't sugarcoat things. So, sometimes these stories will be uncomfortably authentic. We expect to embarrass ourselves from time to time. But hopefully this will help you to avoid some of the mistakes we've made.
And, ultimately, we think you will find huge value in the stories of our success as well as those of our failures.
We've been stumbling our way through the missional ideas we've learned from all the experts over the last few years, and we decided it's time to share our experiences with you.
