Yet another blog? Why and what I am trying to accomplish

20 Jan

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Perhaps you are wondering, “Why is Greg doing this and what does he hope to accomplish?”  First the short answer: several months ago, I felt led of the Lord to do it.  Certainly, I had every excuse in the book – time, the plethora of blogs already out there, etc.  To be very honest, the last thing I needed was another thing to do.  However, it became a matter of obedience for me.  I feel the Lord has led me to do this, and I want to do what He tells me to do.

Now, for a somewhat longer answer.  I had blogged a couple of times per week when I served at a church in Pell City,  and briefly when we moved to Huntsville. Time and the busyness of life and ministry resulted in my withdrawal from the blog world.  In recent years, I have connected with hundreds of people through the platforms of Facebook and Twitter, and I have enjoyed those greatly.  Having been in full-time ministry now for over twenty years and having friends from multiple churches we have served, friends from high school and our home area of Sand Mountain, and friends we have made from our journeys over the years, I feel that having a place to connect with everyone in a more in depth way than Facebook or Twitter can provide will be helpful on many levels.  Also, I have enjoyed writing since I was in high school and this site allows me to begin once again using that gift in a greater way.

Finally, my plan is that gregcorbin.com serve primarily as a place where the majority of my posts will flow from my weekly study of scripture and serve to build up the church through knowledge and application of God’s Word. From time to time, I also plan to post about important church and cultural issues.  Occasionally, I will also post something about my family or friends to change things up and to provide another window for further connection.  If you are looking for political rants,  theological debates, and commentary on everything that is “wrong”, then this site will not be for you. There are a great number of websites that already fill those roles.  Gregcorbin.com will be positive, edifying, informative, and (hopefully) thought provoking.  Right now, my plan is to post two or three times per week.

Most of all, it is my prayer that this site will bring honor and glory to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ, to whom I owe all things. Thanks for reading and check back soon!

Greg
