As y'all might know, Christianity.SE has been running a blog for the last few months. We've gone over a number of topics: birth control, Easter, the church, Christians at the workplace, and now salvation. But one of the top-voted topics still left is what I called Testimony Time™. I know that some of our users might not be comfortable with that particular phrase, however, so I'm going to re-brand the idea as:
If you participate on Christianity.SE, you must have some history with the religion. For many, it began at birth when you were born to Christian parents. For some, it began later in life, perhaps at school. Others, I imagine, have only recently come in contact with the idea of faith in Jesus. Some of us adhere to one Christian tradition or another, but others have a more intellectual interest. But all of us have a story.
In order for the blog to be truly Eschewmenical, we need lots of stories form all sorts of perspectives. Even if you don't consider yourself a Christian or if your conversion story is "boring" we want to hear your voice!
If you participate on Christianity.SE, whether you are a Christian, a non-Christian, an ex-Christian, or any other category we haven't thought of yet, we welcome your contribution. In order to participate:
- start writing your story, and
- contact us by either answering this post or saying "Hi" in the blog chatroom.
The plan is to run this as a series of posts over a month or two when we get approximately 8 collected. This will be an ongoing series that will just air whenever we have enough volume to merit it. Thanks for your interest and let's do this!
