I began blogging nearly four years ago. I initially began blogging because I started seeing the word used more and more frequently in various media, and I didn’t know what it was. I decided the best way to learn about blogging was to blog. The experience has been better than I hoped! My favorite part of blogging has been the interaction I have had with you, those who read deeply committed.

Recently, I have been trying to think about the many ways that people find their way to this blog and how I can better connect with all of you. And so, the purpose of this post it to point to some ways that we can further connect.

Here are a few ways that you can connect with me:

    Subscribe to deeply committed by email by clicking here. (The subscription is free! All you have to do is click on the link, enter your email address and then verify the subscription by opening an email that will be sent to your email account. Note: it may be sent to your junk folder if you have a high filter on your account.)

    Subscribe to deeply committed through a reader. I use google reader, which is free and easy to set up. (After you register for google reader, just click on “add subscription” and then type “deeplycommitted” and click subscribe.)

    Follow me on twitter by clicking here.

    You can also email me at deeplycommitted@gmail.com

    Finally, if you like what you have read here and want to read more you can read my published writing. I have written a book on the General Rules and Wesleyan discipleship called A Blueprint for Discipleship. I was one of the co-authors of an introduction to John Wesley’s theology, as seen through his sermons, called Reclaiming the Wesleyan Tradition. I have just had a chapter on small group discipleship published in Generation Rising. All three of these books were written primarily for the church, with the hope that they would be used in small group settings. You can also read an academic piece I wrote, “Forerunner of the Early Methodist Band Meeting”, that was published on-line in Methodist Review.

Most important, please keep reading and commenting! For those of you who know much more about online communication and social media, I am sure I have missed something. What advice would you give me about how I can better connect with you and others?

Thanks for the continued conversation!
