¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Blogs are websites which include time and date stamped entries, and usually display the most recent posts first. Since August 2006, I have maintained a Christian blog called “Eyes Right.” Like this “Digital Witness for Jesus Christ” project, the Eyes Right blog has gone through several iterations over time. As described in more detail on the blog’s About page, it started as a “team blog” with several others, as a place to share our respective journeys of Christian faith. Later, it became my individual Christian blog, but previous posts by others were archived on the site and remain online.
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 In this chapter, I will address reasons for creating a separate blog to share your own journey of faith. In my case, I created a separate Christian blog not because I wanted to “hide” my Christian faith, but rather because my primary blog and other web spaces were dedicated primarily to other topics. (Like “educational technology.”) I knew other people were not coming to those sites to hear about my Christian faith, and I did not want to be hesitant or reluctant to share ideas and Bible verses with others. I created a separate blog space so I could more freely share those Christian-focused posts and ideas, and also encourage others to do the same.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 One of the primary links I provide on my Christian blog is to a 2006 post I shared on my main “Moving at the Speed of Creativity” blog titled, “My Journey of Faith to Jesus.” Growing up as a Presbyterian, sharing “testimonies” like this was not something we frequently heard about in church or were encouraged to share on Sunday. The Bible is filled with references to personal testimonies about the power of God and the redeeming love of his Son, Jesus Christ. I believe God calls each of us to share our stories and our testimonies of faith about his REALITY and our experiences living in RELATIONSHIP with Him. Sharing my testimony and journey of faith online with others, as well as face-to-face in conversations as well as sermons, has been and continues to be an ongoing process of prayer and risk taking. This “Digital Witness for Jesus” project is another chapter in that continuing personal story.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 I include a linked reference to my @eyesrightblog Twitter account, which is linked to my Eyes Right Christian blog, on my primary @wfryer Twitter account profile. I periodically retweet my @eyesrightblog account from my main @wfryer, which has a much larger following, to share this Christian social media account and blog site with a wider audience and invite people to read and follow the content I share there.
