It Only Takes a Spark …

By quoting that old song in the title I’m showing I’ve passed beyond the young adult years myself.

For those who don’t remember it, let me quote a little more:

It only takes a spark to get a fire going,
And soon all those around can warm up in its glowing;
That’s how it is with God’s Love,
Once you’ve experienced it,
You spread His love to everyone
You want to pass it on.

This little blog started like that. A suggestion, a response, invitations to some others, then spreading the word, and slowly it has built into a community which has strengthened and extended preexisting connections and those we formed at IGNITION.

One thing I need to put together is the “About” page saying a little bit about each of the bloggers. I’m Associate Pastor of the Houston International SDA Church, and I serve as an area coordinator for young adult ministry in Southeast Texas. Two of those in the column to the right, Janice Becca and Javits Rajendran, are young adult members of International; Janice is a law student at University of Houston, and Javits is a journalism major at Houston Community College. They also blog at Adventist Youth which they started with some friends and slowly invited others to take part; they have posts reflecting on their spiritual journeys as young adults, as well as reflections on the Sabbath School lessons. I invite you to take a look.

I also invite you to continue to spread the word about this IGNITION blog. The sparks have slowly begun to build into a fire–lets blow on it a little, now, and add some more fuel, and invite others to share the warmth.

    Bill,
    Yes that lyrical reference does imply our prehistoric status. Of course there is the Toby Mac tune, “IGNITION,” which is another great song to allude to. I really need to figure out how to get that posted in cyberspace for the enjoyment of our bloggers and the larger internet community.

    Many have shared their excitement to spread the word and that is exciting. First person invitations are the most effective. In addition several have cited the blog on their sites.

    And ofcourse, in my excitement, I’m trying to get the word out, including inviting “our generation” and those older, so we can support and fan the flame in new generations.

    Let the sparks fly!
