I found the award statement by Millennia a wonderful reminder of why I started this blog:
"Blogging – Personal Participatory Media – is a growing bridge between local and global communities of faith – a gathering of Christ-followers interactively “working out their salvation” via organic cross- pollination born of commitment to God’s heart and kingdom. The Millennia Foundation views PPM as the “new printing press” – an intentional catalyst towards groundbreaking ecclesiastical consilience.
"The self-organizing nature of PPM is rendering historical sectarian boundaries blurry and indistinct – presenting an emerging global venue in which ideas and imagination, not structural or positional power, moderate dialogue. PPM encourages a new emancipation of knowledge, reawakening dreams buried in the slumber of institutional hierarchy and control. Wisdom (see Proverbs) is the new gatekeeper and community is reborn as a network of conversations.
"Excellence in PPM invites passionate dialogue over points of faith while remaining charitable and beneficial to all participants. The Millennia Award is given to PPM communities which best reflect the centrality of Christ’s Jn17 prayer - seeking to bridge superficial cultural and religious divides; exploring commonality as much as difference; maintaining fresh, creative, missional formats accessible and relevant to a wide audience; remaining sensitive to our shared humanity and common need for grace as we learn and grow together."
I like the term "Personal Participatory Media", makes the whole subject sound really important, a serious scientific matter - much more serious than "blogging".
And I'm listed on zoecarnate under 'Relational "Home" Church Life' - does that mean this blog is just one click away from excellence? ;-)
