The Beginnings of a Blog

11/04/2006 - LANGHORNE, Penn. - In May of 2005 I thought I'd do a Google search for my high school and see what was new. I found the blog that a classmate had started in preparation for the 40th reunion. That began a year of preparation for that celebration that finally happened in July of 2006. Many hands made it a great time with many good memories and pictures, pictures, and more pictures :-) You can see the reunion photos and more at the Class of '66 Blog Spot which has a link listed in the sidebar to your right. If you are a member of that class you may also subscribe to the Class email discussion list also listed in the sidebar. I look forward with much anticipation to future reunions, especially the one for 2007. It is going to be joint reunion that includes SWCS classes form 1960 to 1970.

Recent developments have prompted a second look at the blog genre for yet another way of communicating with family, friends, and the world of the internet. If you're wondering where the name Chalet Eagle comes from, that's the name of our family web site which has a link listed in the sidebar. There is quite a variety of information there that might be of interest. It needs some serious updating which is in progress again. It had not been touched for quite a while. But it is time once again to rethink our involvement in cyberspace and to make the appropriate adjustments to the current culture.

Personally I am a long way off from being a professional writer, but that does not mean that I should not try to communicate with others through the written word. God's grace has allowed me to be a Christian, a member of His family. His grace has also allowed me to sit under the teachings of the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer, his wonderful wife Edith, and the ministry they founded called L'Abri. God's Holy Spirit is still teaching me what began through them which is the Lordship of Christ in all areas of life, not just what we call "religion." But I don't have to be preacher to do that and I'll do my best not to preach here. What I pray will come through this "blog ministry" will fall under the general heading of "True Truth" and I also pray that it will be a help to family, friends, and others in living their daily lives. This is whether you are a Christian or whether your worldview is yet another one of the myriad of belief systems that are out there . Helping others is all that I have ever wanted to do, to be a blessing, like so many that have gone before me and been my example. (Lifetime Verse(s): Hebrews 13:7-8).

Thanks Fitz for being an example and starting that blog of yours. It was your blog that inspired me to start this one :-)
