Welcome to my Editor's Blog – I hope to write regularly on here about things that grab me and possess a spiritual dynamic. And we'll also carry the occasional guest blog, too. Do send me your feedback and comments. Just mail me, and I'll add comments on the bottom of each piece.

What kind of things are you really grateful for in your church? Friends? Great worship? Good teaching? Support during hard times? The after-service coffee?
A new social media project hatched by the imaginative bods at Share Creative and Godculture magazine aims to get a snapshot of what people value in their church, under the hashtag #ThisisChurch
Organised as part of the 2012 Pentecost Festival, getting involved is easy:
1 Get creative. Take a photo that shows what church means to you.
2 Tweet it. Include a description and the tag #thisischurch
Photos have started going up already at www.thisischurch.me
Maybe Willow Creek pastor Bill Hybels captured the spirit behind the project:
“There is nothing like the local church when it’s working right. Its beauty is indescribable. Its power is breathtaking. Its potential is unlimited. It comforts the grieving and heals the broken in the context of community.”
I'm hoping to capture something of our church this weekend. How about you?
