Blog Eldering Support Committee

I’ve been thinking of this blog as a ministry for a while. As I’ve said, writing is my spiritual discipline and posting it to a public forum keeps me honest and true to my center—I’m not writing for the beauty or the flow or because I love words; I write this to help me seek clarity about where Spirit dwells in my life and how I am being called to live. And sure, if you look back through my blog, you’ll find puh-lenty of posts which are all about me, me, ME, but mostly, I’ve tried to keep my awareness of and focus on God in my life. Because I do feel this has developed into a ministry, I asked NFM Ministry & Council for a blog eldering committee. They responded positively and now I have an on-going support committee that NEVER NEEDS TO MEET IN PERSON!!! (No scheduling conflicts! No struggling with how to fit it into our schedules!) What I’ve requested is for a couple of people to commit to reading friendlymama on a regular basis and make occasional comments when they feel led to do so. Judy offered to clerk and she, Kit and Polly are my support committee. We’re creating a new entity so we’re not exactly sure how it will unfold but I’m glad and grateful for the loving support.

Hey, Mary Linda, perhaps you have created a new form of clearness committee! I think this is a very cool idea! Peace, Polly

I think it's very cool that y'all are so willing to support me.

On an another note entirely--I'm doing interviewing to hire new field interviewers for my company and has screened a guy who was a military recruiter. I just did a check on one of his references who said he was trustworthy and honest and never promised the recruites anything that he wouldn't be able to ensure would happen. I'd never heard of an honest recruiter before.
Anyway, thanks!
