Jason Dukes, Mark Weible and me.
I’m continuing my celebration from last Friday marking 6 Months of posting here at “Into the Mystic…” Six months ago, when I first started this blog, we had a rich discussion on whether or not real relationships could be built in a medium like this one. For many of us, that question has been answered.
Others have yet to ask this question. Be patient with them when they come. Eventually they’ll find you and the community that inhabits this dimension as they feel their way through the myst.
What is happening here has precedents in the history of online interaction, but never with the kind of intentionality and subversive purpose that we here. In many ways, I think we’re pointing the way towards a new form of the Christ following movement.
Largely this is so because of the influence my “search for The Mystic” has had on me. I’ll continue the narrative and reveal my latest findings to you soon.

Brian Russel and me.
Performing artists, homemakers, construction workers, seminary profs, church planters, pastors, presidents of music labels, professors of political science, superheroes, mosaic interns, students, Educators, designers, accountants…have all found their way here to “Into the mystic.” And through here many of you have also found each other.
Looking back I discovered that [after my son, Michael and a nice young teenager from Texas], my young friend Cliff Bragg was the first to post a comment. Thanks Cliff for helping me get things going.

I’ve got some very exciting topics coming up that will be sure to create a fire storm. What’s new? That happens here and some get a bit singed but we all generally emerge stronger.
Did I mention the radio station? The podcasting? The videoblogs? The new blogging community I hope each and everyone of you will join — word is we’re actually getting somewhere now. Stay tuned.
Your voices are what have made this place an interesting place to hang out. Thank you for a terrific 6 months. You belong here.
