International (MNN) —
A blog is short for 'weblog'. It's generally defined as a journal or
newsletter that is frequently updated and intended for the general public.
Purpose Driven Network's news director, Mark Kelly says
they've taken the plunge and launched their own. "The technology has
evolved around to where blog sites are the best way to communicate through the
internet. We experimented with a blog
back in the summer, when pastor Rick traveled overseas and have tweaked our
strategy a little bit. Having a blog out
there is going to be a really good way to help share information about some of
the new initiatives."
It's intended to be a source of accurate information and
perspective on Rick Warren, the Purpose Driven movement, and the P.E.A.C.E.
Plan (Plant churches, Equip leaders, Assist the poor, Care for the sick, and Educate the next generation.)
An excellent backup to their dedicated
website, this blog is meant to promote understanding of the Purpose Driven
paradigm as a biblical approach to healthy, balanced church life that fulfills
all God's purposes for the Church and leads to both spiritual and numerical
Kelly says, there is a deeper purpose for providing so much
information. It's to share the vision of
a second Reformation that restores responsibility in people, credibility in
churches, and civility in culture. "The burden of our hearts is the need
to plant churches because spiritual emptiness is the most serious problem the
world faces today. Everything we do is geared, one way or another, to helping
God's people fulfill the purposes that God has for them, one of which is
sharing salvation in Jesus Christ."
