I just had a great idea. What if every Artisan blogger wrote a piece about what Artisan means to him/her, and I read the posts, and then I collected snippets from everyone and posted a big meta-post here at P.F. for all the world to see?
Anyway, I think it's a great idea. I have talked with many of you lately who have shared how important Artisan has become in your life, and I think it'd be very nice to see all of your thoughts in one place.
Here are some guidelines.
Eligibility: Anyone who has a blog and attends Artisan can and should participate! I'll even make a special exception and read a MySpace blog for this purpose. (Ha ha.) Also, if you're a former Artisan who moved away, you can write about what it meant to you when you were here.
Content: Whatever you want to write is okay. If you want suggestions, how about this: What stood out to you when you first attended? What is the best part about following Jesus at Artisan? How has Artisan helped you understand who God is, or how to know God more? Has attending Artisan had any impact on major life decisions (such as where to work, live, etc.)? This is not an exhaustive list; feel free to ignore these suggestions and do your own thing if you already have ideas.
How to Share: Please publish your entry by Friday, March 3. That's this Friday, by the way. It would be helpful if you titled it "Artisan Church meta-blog project" for the sake of continuity. When you've published your thoughts, either contact me (see here if you don't know how), or leave a comment on this post. Provide a link if possible. I'll read them over the weekend and collect snippets. Then, I'll publish a summary on Monday, March 6.
Sound good? I'm excited to hear what you've got to say. Get blogging!
