“Just look for a moment at our daily routine. In general we are a very busy people. We have many meetings to attend, many visits to make, many services to lead. Our calendars are filled with appointments, our days and weeks filled with engagements, and our years filled with plans and projects. There is seldom a period in which we do not know what to do, and we move through life in such a distracted way that we do not even take the time and rest to wonder if any of the things we think, say, or do are worth thinking, saying, or doing.”
– Henri J.M. Nouwen, “The Way of the Heart”
I love this quote. Even though he is speaking to Pastors regarding schedules, I think it applies also to our general world, both real and online. We spend so much time online creating and consuming, without ever really stopping to ask if any of it is worth the time it is stealing from us.
Do we all really need a platform?
Anyway, welcome to my website. (Is this an example of irony or paradox? I can’t remember.)
