I’m a Writer, Not a Quilt
I’ve been writing my blog for about a year and a half, and, maybe because I try to be candid on it, people often let me know how it affects them, and I love that– mostly.
The comments and emails that tell me my writing makes people feel not alone, makes them think, makes them laugh– those are notes are grace to me, they are treasures. But once in a while someone feels so free, so emboldened (and that’s wonderful, but not) to let me know how uncomfortable I make them.
And I can only say this: My job isn’t to make you comfortable; I’m a writer, not a quilt.
My job is to write out redemption.
Today I have the honor of kicking off the delightfully titled Missionary Positions series on the way we share Jesus in our everyday lives for my friend Jamie The Very Worst Missionary. Please check out my post to see how a writer does it! (Ahem.)
