Someone gave me a great idea the other day, when after reading my post on Leader and Follower – A Match Made In Heaven, he asked me if I would publish a post he would like to write, sharing his perspective, which was coming from a cultural angle. At first I was like, “No. I’m the only one who writes on my blog…” But then moments later, the light came on!
I’ve always wondered if I would be one of those bloggers who opens the floor to other contributors. I now know strongly the message I’ve been given, and I don’t want to share conflicting views on Grace and Truth. However, I know that even among Christians, there is a diverse understanding on many teachings and practices. Wouldn’t it be great if we could have a safe place to share and discuss a different perspective from the norm?
I have used this blog to share MY different perspective on so many Christian related issues, and through it, my understanding has grown and my knowledge and appreciation for the Bible has increased too. As a critical thinker, I can’t pass up the opportunity to engage other critical thinkers, and hopefully, if we are sincerely seeking the truth, we will drop false ideas and grow in wisdom and unity.
So, I would like to announce this new avenue and category on my blog. It is for all my readers to take advantage of. If you read a post on my blog, and you have a different perspective you would like us to consider, please write your post and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If it is well written, without much need for editing, I will happily publish it under this category and credit you as the authour. Please remember to submit a brief bio too 🙂
Also, you may have a different perspective on an event in the news, a trending issue or even a religious issue that you feel no one wants to address (or maybe you think the Church has got it wrong). If you don’t have a blog (or even if you do) and would like to publish it here (or as well), simply email it to me and I will share it here.
I intend to start publishing pieces on A Different Perspective on Grace and Truth every Monday at noon from the first Monday of September 2016. Everyone is welcome to share their unique perspective on any issue. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a Christian. I am sure your piece may yet inspire me to write more and dig deeper into the issues, so I welcome the challenge. However, since I can only publish one post a week, I can’t promise that yours will be published, but pledge to inform every contributor of the status of their contribution within a week of submission.
I hope that with this change, more of you reading will become more engaged and begin to comment more. Some of you commenting are due for writing your first blogpost…so take the bull by the horns! I’m giving you the floor. And if you become a frequent contributor on A Different Perspective, then, in time, I will add you as a full contributor to Grace and Truth.
I look forward to reading and sharing your submissions!
