My dad has taught me a lot. He has prayed for me a lot. But around 1994 when the internet became more than just Compuserve and Prodigy, the tides of knowledge shifted. Actually it was more of a ripple. Not a full blown tide. I was still pretty stupid in most areas of life. But I fell in love with the internet. Since that year I have been pulling my dad along the Information Highway and he has kept up beautifully. But things are moving VERY fast now. I have left his world of PC’s for Macs. This was an obvious sign of rebellion. But I keep reminding him that he was the man who bought me my first Apple II. So he has been wondering aloud lately why I am doing this Blog thing? Why would someone do this? I told him for various reasons. I started doing it so my ministry team had a way of keeping up with my thoughts, vision, and happenings. It has grown into more. But originally that was it. I saw a twinkle in his eye. About an hour later he has a blog. That All May Know. I let him know it would be a great way that the local churches in California can see the ministry of the state convention through the eyes of their leader. Not the eyes of some writer. But what my dad sees. I think if used correctly his blog can change the way California Southern Baptists see the work of their convention. I can’t wait.
My dad is my hero. He never ceases to amaze me. I can’t wait to hear his stories. So go out and make your parents blog. But be careful. They might just read yours.
