Why I'm starting this blog....

If I had to describe one thing about myself, I'd have to say that I am an idea-guy. I like discussion, and dialogue about interesting things. I like to throw my ideas at other people and see how high they bounce. That is the main thing I want to use this blog for. I basically want to post my random thoughts and ideas, on all sorts of subjects, and if anybody is interested they can leave me feedback. Because good discussion is like being in a water balloon toss. You know, the game where two people take turns throwing and catching a water balloon, and each time taking a step apart. Eventually the balloon breaks on one of them, the one who could not catch it! In a good conversation, the idea is the water balloon. And both the idea, and those in the discussion are tested to the limit. That is why I named my blog "Above and Beyond," because I want to test, and stretch the limits of my thoughts and ideas, and I thought having a blog would be the perfect place for that. I also want people to throw their thoughts and ideas my way as well. I hope that this blog will be a positive, and provoking platform for myself and others to build and encourage each other in Christ.
