blogs and books

i think books are different from blogs. it might just be me though. i have been blogging for a few years now. one of my categories was about church transition – doing emerging church stuff in an established setting. i was stunned to discover earlier this year that there are over 200,000 words in that blog category on my blog.

now those 200,000 words are jottings and have blessed people on the way. but i suspect there is another way to bless people; to reflect on those 200,000 words and integrate and edit them as a 45,000 word book.

is there a place in our world for multiple approaches to communication?

A comment I made on Mark Berry’s blog.

  1. As you know, I have found your category very helpful. I would love to see you reflect on it and publish it. A kind of looking back approach. On the blog we see it happen and develop, but what are the long term affects, how have the things you have done affect the life of the congregations in the long term.

    I keep thinking about the post on the church meeting/reflection on a sermon and wondering what happened.
