Featured Blog: Meredith’s Musings

I read everything Meredith posts on her blog; it is one of those that I catch up on if I miss for some reason. I’ve been trying to put my finger on exactly why that is, and to be honest, I’m not sure I can quite identify the reason.

I really like Meredith’s writing style, but it isn’t just that. She has some wonderful recipes, and being the cook at my house, I’m always looking for a new idea… and by the way, you’ve got to try the pork steaks! Yet, I don’t think the recipes are the reason either. It could be her posts about dogs, for I am a dog-less dog lover while here in the uncivilized environs of Washington DC… no, that’s not it.

You know what I think the reason is… at least the closest I can come to it? I think it’s Meredith’s orientation towards relationships that seems to live in every post.

I highly doubt that there is any semblance of “Christian Life” that is not heavily weighted toward relationships. Relationship with God, relationship with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors… Yes, that’s it! Everything “Christian” in life is about relationship, and do you know what? Meredith’s blogging demonstrates that without talking about it; she just does it. Yes, that’s why I never miss her posts; they just are like a connection of sorts, a connection that all of us hope to share in, a connection that is the love of Christ living within us and through us.

I hope you will pay Meredith a cal!

    As Popeye says, “Blow me down!” I’m not usually at a loss for words!?! What a wonderful acknowledgement. It means so much to know you see what I attempt to live everyday – my relationship with the Savior that is the foundation for all relationships. Thanks so much Don. I feel so validated.

    “Meredith’s blogging demonstrates that without talking about it; she just does it.” Here is a point that has really hit me lately, which I think this expresses: We are, like every faithful person in Scripture, to “be the message.” We are not simply to deliver the message, but to BE the message, so those around us will say, “S/He just does it!”

      Dennis, when we we back there a few weeks ago, we were really struck by how “different” MCC is from what we have grown used to lately; it made it even harder for us to head east again. What you have shared here is the reason, the difference! Thanks so much!
