Reflection On Plumb

While I’ve never written as much as I would like to, it hasn’t kept me from trying to move forward with this blog. One of the things about moving forward involves coming up with a name. Through the years, I’ve tried a few: _Extra Spout_, _The Truth Hurts_, _The Scenery_, and mostly recently, _J. Alan Doak_. The last was the most convenient, but while my blog is a reflection of my thoughts, it isn’t me. While a person could get a pretty good idea of who I am from my blog, they still won’t know me. I know the difference between the two, and I’m able to separate the two.

So. My blog needs a name.

Are You Drawing People In, Or Chasing Them Away?

”You should not be the one that actively goes out and gets people but it should be that they should be drawn to you [1]“.

I read this the other day at Mark Hunter’s blog [Awakening From Atheism][1]. It made me think, again, about the role of the Christian in evangelism. There are very different ways of looking at this and I’m convinced that most people are either wrong or just don’t get it. Of course, I’m open to the idea that I could be wrong, but you’re going to have a tough time convincing me. Not because I’m stubborn–I can be–but because I’ve thought about this long and hard.
