Should Pastors Blog?

I don't know what you think, but here is an interesting post from the Desiring God blog. It is titled 6 Reasons Pastors Should Blog.

Here are the six reasons:
  1. write
  2. teach
  3. interact
  4. develop an eye for what is meaningful
  5. be known
To get the explanation of each of these six reasons, you will have to go to the original post. I mention them here mostly because I just thought it was interesting and lately I have really enjoyed some interesting posts from other people's blogs that I have felt the need to share on this blog. The other reason that I mention this is because it got me to thinking about teachers blogging. I especially liked what he says under reason #4. The author says of blogging,
"It nurtures a habit of looking for insight and wisdom and value in every situation, no matter how mundane."
He goes on to say that this habit can help you to become more aware of what God is doing in your life. I agree, even if you don't blog, it is a good habit to get into. I won't mention any more, just go read the article.
