Over the last several months, I’ve had an idea of creating a new website. As the idea has matured, I realized that I wanted to create a family website that articulates our attempts at being a missional family. As Debbie and I discussed a name for the site, she came up with “MissionalStew.com.” I immediately loved the name.
The name captures our experience of trying to be missional. Life is messy, even when we follow Jesus into his eternal life upon the earth. But Jesus takes all the ingredients of our messy lives and simmers them over time. The result is hopefully a savory and aromatic life, one that invites you to the imperfect table of hospitality and friendship.
I still haven’t decided what I will use to create the website. But I want it to be a place that is more than a blog or a resource site. I want it to be a place where our personal and family thoughts and creativity could be displayed in a way that encourages and affirms the missional life through spiritual formation, community, service, culture, creativity and quite frankly, sometimes by simply stumbling forward.
At this point Debbie and I will continue blogging on theofframp.org. They are our community and family. Our new family website will hopefully be an expression of the life and friendships we have there.
Right now, there’s only a conceptual design at the site. But you can check it out at:
I’ll post further notices as things develop.
