The Plan (for this Blog)

I didn’t want anyone to think I was giving some big theological overview of God’s plan in Scripture or history.  No, just my plan for this blog.  I like to plan and know that what I’m doing is accomplishing something.  I don’t want this blog to become a random collection of funny sayings and cat pictures.

So here is my plan (which is subject to change at any time).

Mondays will be a post about the previous day’s sermon.  I hope to link to the recorded sermon on the Orchard Community Church website, but right now we are a bit behind in getting the sermons online – which is understandable because the guy who does it is taking care of his wife and newborn baby!

Tuesdays and Thursdays will be random posts.  They might be something about me or my family.  They could be something serious or humorous (again, no cat pictures, I promise).  These posts might be something happening at Orchard.

Wednesdays will be ongoing series on a particular topic.  I am going to start with the Mission Statement and Core Values of Orchard Community Church.  Another series I have in mind is on the topic of church membership.  These series will probably go on for several weeks.

Fridays will be a sneak peak at the sermon for the coming Sunday.  I think it is good to come to worship with your mind already engaged so a little “warm up” is good.

I do not plan on posting on Saturdays and Sundays.

A few other things to know.  I won’t actually be writing posts everyday.  Some will be written in advanced and scheduled to go live on a certain day at a certain time..  Fridays are my day off so those posts will be written during the week and will go live on Friday mornings.

Comments are welcomed and expected!  I would love for this to be a dialogue.  Just in case you aren’t into the blog world that much (I’m still trying to figure it out myself!), just click the “leave a comment” link at the bottom of a post.  Anyone can post a comment and I will try to reply as soon as I can.  I welcome requests for certain topics or questions relating to a sermon or post.

I consider it my great joy and responsibility as a pastor to teach and disciple people as they follow Christ.  This blog is one way I hope to do that.  It is a tool and nothing more.  If nothing else, it is a great tool for me to constantly be thinking and evaluating what I am doing for God.  Maybe it will spur others on as well.

  1. I would really like to see some cat pictures- that would be fantastic!!!

    Thanks for your work on this- I look forward to seeing how God uses it for his honor and glory.

    1. I, too, would like to see some cat pictures. I’m happy to loan you my very unfriendly and skittish cat so that you can get some great pics. Really. I’d do that for you, ’cause I’m that kind of friend. 🙂

      I am looking forward to following you here on “the other Daye blog” (ha ha, just kidding). I figure it’s at least some consolation for not getting to hear you teach and preach every week (live, at least!).

  2. seriously, no cat pictures – unless they serve some deep theological meaning! And Kathi, I don’t mind being the “other Daye blog” – coming in second to Becky is a great compliment!

  3. Pastor Dave –
    I like your plan – especially the idea of putting out a teaser for Sunday on Friday. I will keep you in my prayers as you have opened the door for comments and questions – I pray the comments are positive and the questions numerous. (And I support your position on cat pictures!)

    1. Thanks! Now I just have to actually keep up with my schedule. I’m curious how comments will go as well. I do get to approve the first time someone writes a comment so hopefully things won’t get out of hand.
